When you see the Benchmade butterfly logo on a blade, you take notice, because it is a sign of quality, reliability, and craftsmanship that has stood tall for decades in the knife community. Especially noteworthy for everyday carry and tactical use, Benchmade knives are renowned for the ability to take punishment, but still deliver when it comes to use and functionality. Perfect for working outdoors--especially if you have larger hands--the 980SBK Turret is overbuilt for utility and heavy-duty tasks that would push the limits of a lesser knife.
The Benchmade 980SBK is 8.90" in overall length with a 3.70" drop point, black cerakote coated CPM-S30V stainless steel blade, which sheds moisture as well as it protects against marring and scratches. The added vanadium in this high-carbon steel alloy makes the steel extremely hard with an HRC of 58-60. The .124" blade stock is sharpened down to a razor-sharp edge which holds its own against dulling, chipping, and corrosion, use after use. The swedge makes the blade almost spear-point in appearance, giving you versatility in point precision and piercing. Partial serrations on the blade are useful when cutting rope or seatbelts. Deep jimping continues from the back of the blade to the G10 handle, providing additional control and grip for thumb and finger alike. The ambidextrous thumb studs aid in quick deployment for single-handed use when moments count.
The patented AXIS locking system is one of the strongest yet in the history of Benchmade knives, giving you the assurance that your blade is locked in place until you decide to change that. AXIS locks are ambidextrous, making this knife great for right or left-hand users. The 3D machined G10 handle is an upgrade of previous designs providing better impact resistance and durability. The shape of the handle also works well for better ergonomics and grip in any condition--wet or dry--while cutting down on carry weight. The pocket clip is reversible for tip-up, deep pocket carry. A lanyard hole allows for other carry options as well as the implementation of tactical paracord use. At 5.81oz total weight, the BM 980SBK Turret is sturdy but won't weigh you down for EDC use. At .67" thick, it makes a slim profile in your pocket that won't get in the way.
