A review from: Ben
I have the Automatic version of this knife. It has been a work horse for me. I use it at work most everyday as well as out in the back country. The knife opens easily. The handle is solid with a good grip. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a solid knife.
A review from: Michael
I use this as my EDC, and it has never failed. The lock is flawless. The action is far beyond the competition. My brother brags on his preferred brand, but admitted that this was truly far beyond that. Benchmade continues to be worth the premium.
A review from: tim
The longer grip of the knife allows for both a close and long range forward grip. Depending on the situation the user can choose which to deploy. The hooking ability of the up swept blade lends itself to hooking techniques while retaining the ability to deliver devastating outward cuts in reverse grip. The tip of the blade lies right under the thumb when placed on the ramp, and the profile of the edge is actually identical to that of the kabar fighting knife (check for yourself). The relief on the spine gives the illusion the blade is sharply up swept but in fact its only slightly so. The excellent sculpted g10 scales grab the hand but not the fabric, something I wish more manufacturers understood, and deploys quick and smooth. The lock up and factory edge are excellent as I've come to expect from Benchmade. The long range ability and grip options combined with a made in the USA product make the Bedlam an excellent defensive choice for armed professionals and responsible citizens.
A review from: Pravus
I've owned two of these knives in the last 3 years. I love everything about the handle, the blade, the lock... I've Lost both knives because the pocket clip is several orders of magnitude lower in quality than the rest of the knife. Within a month of purchase I had to start removing the pocket clip, bending it back into shape before reattaching it to get enough tension so it would actually stay in my pocket. Please fix this problem!
