Benchmade Super Steel Barrage – Best Assisted Opening Knife
The proud feature of this pocket knife is the handle, aligned with G10 scales with aluminum bolster. The blade is made of M390 super steel, special and gets the job done. The entire blade is easy to wield and equipped with Axis lock with axis assist. The blade length is 3.60 inches, and only a modest 4.75 inches when closed, making it smaller than most cell phones. It has a wee bit of weight to it at 5.20 ounces, and shows good form and durability because of it. A hard drop to the floor won’t spring the knife, and Benchmade stands by this product and offers a lifetime guarantee if need be.
The blade materials are a mash up of anodized aluminum and other components, and is a really well made blade. The entire knife is comfortable in the hands whether closed or open, and the Axis lock is tried and true. The Benchmade Super Steel Barrage is also good to look at, as they didn’t skimp on the materials or the design of this pocket knife. With a chromium level of 20% in the blade, it is truly one of the best made blades on this list with a high rating in both rust and corrosion resistance. This is a solid buy for anyone looking for a great pocket knife, and even with the high price point, the craftsmanship is well worth the money.
