Both knives are Blackwood designed with the power of the Benchmade exclusive AXIS® mechanics which provides for a smooth one-hand ambidextrous opening. Just like its big brother, the new Mini-Rukus has a two-part handle assembly with the ability to semi-customize the handle scales as you see fit*.
The blade steel is made of super strong S30V which comes extraordinarily sharp directly out of the box. The handle scales are a combination of black G10 composite and olive drab micarta. Each knife comes with blade options such as satin with or without partial serrations, or a black-coated with partial serrations. The blade length on the Mini version is 3.40”, giving the opened knife a total length of 8.50”. This knife retains the large looks of its big brother yet still fits in the hand nicely weighing 5.90 ounces.
Benchmade is excited to now offer two options in the Rukus family to choose from. Both knives have that jaw-dropping look and appeal but are also both strong and practical for everyday use. This new Mini version starts with a manufacturers suggested retail price of $220** so if you are big on performance and style, the Mini-Rukus is certainly worth its weight!
