Benchmade knives are some of the finest knives in the country, and they’re completely American made. Since the company’s creation in the late 80’s, the Benchmade brand has become one of the leading producers of high quality American knives. The company uses individual knifemakers to design their products, and the results are some of the most innovative and trend-setting knives in the business. A perfect example of Benchmade craftsmanship can be seen in the Benchmade 950, a high quality tactical knife that comes in a variety of styles.
Designed by Warren Osborne, the Benchmade 950 has a 3 ½ inch stainless 154CM steel blade, with a total knife length of 8 ¼ inches. It comes with a contoured G-10 frame, and has black coated stainless steel liners. The 950 is easy to carry because of the contoured handles, and its light weight of only 4.8 ounces. The dual thumb studs make the knife work easily for either right or left hand opening, and the knife has Benchmade’s patented AXIS lock system. It also comes with a pocket clip that is mounted so you can use it for tip up carry in either your left or right pocket. The Benchmade 950 comes in four different designs:
Benchmade 950 Osborne Rift Tactical Folding Knife –comes with a black and gray handle. Has a black G-10 spacer, and black liners.
Benchmade 950 SBK Tactical Folding Knife – has a black, partially serrated blade, black and gray handle, black G-10 spacer, and black liners.
The Benchmade 950 model is an extremely popular military-grade knife because it is made to last, it’s easy to use, and the different designs let you get exactly the type of knife you are looking for. It is a wonderful representation of the Benchmade brand and ideal for anyone looking for a custom-quality knife they can use for every day carry.
