SHARE YOUR BENCHMADES

The Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. is a relatively new organization. It was founded in 1988 in California as a manufacturer of Bali-Song (butterfly knives). The business was moved to Oregon in 1990 where the company’s dedication to quality and customer service enabled it to grow rapidly and expand its product line. In the early 1990’s the Designer series was introduced, which laid the groundwork for what Benchmade has become today.

Yes it is the small summit lake. Discontinued. It is a great "gentleman's carry" or just a very stylish EDC. Even though it is part of the "HUNT LINE" of knives. The Dynowood handles make it special. S30v steel , and that traditional look with the lockback sold me on it.

My one and only Benchmade - a 42. Great flipper. I was disappointed when they stopped making them.

Hello. Kenjap here. New to this forum. Here is my early made benchmade bali-song auto spike. It has the "Bali-song" written inside the butterfly logo. Its benchmade quickest auto ever made.

My every day carry for when I am doing chores. A model 581 with big fat handles for a solid grip when cutting hard stuff with the four inch blade of M390.
For shopping and public outings I carry a slim, smaller knife.

Really happy with this knife.
