Description: Erasing the lines between custom and manufactured, it is a matter of satisfying the ultimate desire. Whether it is embellishing existing designs to loftier heights, creating entirely new ones, or even crafting a one of a kind experience from a collector's wish list, the Benchmade Gold Class clearly sets the new standard of knife manufacturing. This knife is HAND MADE and only 150 pieces were made!
The blade is made from CPM-M4 with a Scotch-Brite hand finish. CPM-M4 is a special purpose high-speed tool steel, containing a high level of vanadium. This offers incredible toughness and wear resistance while still retaining decent corrosion resistance. The spine has been crowned or rounded making it very comfortable for skinning game.
The handle combines polished and blended 17-4 PH stainless steel bolsters with natural banksia pod handles filled with royal blue resin. Banksia pods originate from southwestern Australia. Typically only the pods from the Bull Banksia (Banksia grandis) are large enough and solid enough to be used for woodturning applications. These pods are commonly compared to pine cones, though Banksia trees are not conifers and aren’t related to pine trees (Pinus genus)—the seed pod itself is considered the fruit of the tree. The natural holes have been filled with royal blue resign offering a beautiful contrast to the dark toned scales. The scales are set on matching blue liners. The handle is secured using mosaic stainless steel pins.
This knife includes a leather sheath with an ostrich leather inlay. The knife is handmade and we have #107.
