Big performance from a smaller knife. Flick the thumb stud to open the Mini-Presidio’s tough, 3” drop-point blade with one hand — either hand. Benchmade’s patented AXIS system will lock it securely into place until you slide the ambidextrous button on the handle to release it. At just over 4” closed, and less then 4 oz., this comfortable, lightweight knife is always ready for tough duty. The hollow ground drop point blade is crafted from premium-grade American made 154CM stainless steel to deliver tough, dependable, all-around performance and great corrosion resistance. But it’s the unique, ergonomically shaped machined aluminum handle that really gives Benchmade’s Presidio series knives their edge. Machined from incredibly tough 6061 T-6 Aluminum and black anodized with a durable non-reflective tactical finish, these patented grips feature a unique bi-directional handle tread design for an amazing grip that’s secure and comfortable in any weather. Double 420J Stainless Steel liners add to its exceptional strength, inside and out. The reversible pocket clip lets you carry the knife on whichever side you prefer. BK1 coating provides excellent corrosion protection, which exceeds the ASTM-117 spec for saltwater while possessing higher scratch resistance.
