Description: Only 500 of the Benchmade Torrent (890-1701) were made and this one is #285.
This no nonsense limited edition knife features a DLC coated 154CM stainless steel drop point blade. As the only spring assisted model to not offer the AXIS® system, this Ken Steigerwalt designed model makes one-handed operation as simple as can be. A simple nudge on the thumb stud and the blade fires open using Benchmade's Nitrous Assist mechanism which is a titanium bar integrated into the liners for long term reliable performance and quick opening action.
The handle combines blue G10 scales with purple anodized titanium liners. The liners surround a jimped blackened steel backspacer with a built in lanyard hole. The extended back spacer can be used as a glass breaker. All of the hardware features a black finish to offer a nice contrast to the bright scales and liners. Like the original Torrent, the deep carry pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-down carry.
This is a serious overhaul on a classic knife that you won't want to miss!
