For more then two decades, Benchmade blades have excelled in demanding environments and continue to impress the discerning knife collector. This Benchmade 300SN Knife Model Overview points out some of the features and materials that make this a fantastic addition to the Benchmade 'Blue Class' of knives.
A drop-point blade with ambidextrous thumb studs has a length of 3.18 inches and thickness of 0.13 inches. The knife also has a flipper opener for faster opening action. The flipper serves as an index finger guard in the open position. The benchmade folding knife has a filed thumb rest on the blade spine for a secure hole.
The model 300SN makes a great utility blade, big enough to tackle most cutting jobs without being oversized. This blade is offered in 154CM stainless (corrosion resistant, balance of toughness and edge quality). The blade is offered in a plain or 'ComboEdge' (half plain, half serrated).
The model 300SN utilizes the revolutionary Axis lock, a spring-enabled, ambidextrous mechanism which automatically engages when the blade is fully opened. The Axis is simple to unlock one-handed to return the knife to it's closed position. Benchmade also added a 'flipper' to the blade, allowing one-handed opening comparable in speed to any of their auto models.
Textured G10 handles are grippy and textured. Overall weight of the 300SN is 4.85oz with an overall open length of 7.36 inches (4.25 closed). Additionally, the 300SN offers a pocket carry clip which is reversible and carries the knife tip-up.
As always, the Benchmade model 300 is made in the USA and covered by the LifeSharp program. Simply ship your (registered) product to Benchmade and they will re-sharpen your blade to a factory edge as well inspect for warranted repairs. Finally Benchmade will 'tune' your knife so it performs like it just came out of the box for the first time. Clearly an investment in a high-quality, American-made knife like the model 300 will provide you with a tool that will perform for a LONG time.
