860

Recoil - - I’ll Be In My Office -

411:

If Rick Mo­ra­nis’ char­ac­ter from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids ever got his hands on a scim­i­tar, he’d prob­a­bly end up cre­at­ing some­thing like this badass fold­ing knife. It’s no sur­prise to find that the 860 was orig­i­nally de­signed for se­cu­rity forces pro­tect­ing the king of Jor­dan. There’s a lan­yard hole and jimp­ing on the but­tend, which works great as both a glass­breaker and a strik­ing point. As part of the Bed­lam fam­ily of knives, the 860 is avail­able with ser­ra­tions, a black coat­ing, and au­to­matic open­ing. Made in the USA.

PROS:

Feels great in hand, re­gard­less of your grip pref­er­ence (ham­mer, re­verse, Filipino, etc.) Blade is made from one of our fa­vorite steels: 154CM.

Benchmade’s pro­pri­ety Axis lock is ro­bust, easy to use, and am­bidex­trous.

Top qual­ity con­struc­tion

CONS:

The up­swept blade is great for slic­ing but — much like the No­mad —isn’t ideal for mak­ing longer cuts.

It’s al­most half a pound and takes up a lot of pocket real es­tate.
