The Benchmade 319 Proper is a sleek, modern take on a classic gentleman's folder. With its simple mechanisms and timeless design, the 319 Proper is a beautiful knife for any application.
Featuring a 2.86-inch Crucible S30V stainless steel blade with a Rockwell Hardness of 58-60, the Benchmade 319 combines excellent sharpness, durability, and blade retention. The drop-point Sheepsfoot blade shape and classic slip joint mechanism of the 319 Proper create a knife that is sleek, elegant, and perfect for everyday carry applications. The sturdy spring tucked into the 319 Proper's handle keeps the blade from swinging open or closed accidentally, but with no locking mechanism, this knife faces none of the legality issues encountered by many modern locking folders.
The Benchmade Proper features a Green Canvas Micarta handle, providing exceptional grip and control while the knife is in use, even in damp or wet hands. The unique texture and appearance of the Green Canvas Micarta handle makes for an excellent conversation starter and makes the 319 Proper a knife you'll be proud to carry and use. Designed for exceptional everyday carry with its folded length of 3.85 inches and overall weight of only 2.32 ounces, the 319 Proper fits easily and comfortably into a pant, shirt, or coat pocket.

A modern take on the timeless gentleman's folder, the 319 slip joint is the perfect addition to your everyday carry options.
I've just started collecting slip-joints: Toole, Pena, Davison, Hoback, etc. This little Proper is great and very functional, although the spring and half-stop is not as crisp as the others (except the Hoback that has no half-stop.) The edge is very sharp. I find the Proper both pocket friendly and very pocket ready. And NOBODY can complain about the cost. Delivery was great too ... promised second-day by KA and Fed Ex but delivered next day! Great experience all the way around.
