Tolerances are tight and the feel is warm cold and strength combined. The blade is razor sharp and it opens as fast as a scalded ape. I now use this to develop a certain morel flexibility in otherwise unattainable flexibility of steadfast comrades.

I'm a firefighter/paramedic in Galveston County, TX, and while I was working during Hurricane Harvey my house flooded. My wife was alone for four days while I was at work and used this knife to tear up every bit of flooring in our house and to cut out the bottom two feet of drywall in every room. The tip never broke and it even held a decent edge after four days. The finish is a little worn now but after an hour on the wet stone it's ready to go again. I'll never buy another brand ever again.

I purchased the Barrage 580 due to being USA made, and I liked the look and feel. Afterwards I realized just ow great a knife this really was. I had heard of the Bench Made name but not super familar. I love the fact it turned out to be such an awesome knife. I use it everyday and it still will shave my arm. Keeps an edge very well. I'm very excited and pleased with this purchase.

I've been carrying nothing but Benchmade for 16 years, and the Barrage variant since they were first introduced...I now own 12 Benchmade knives, as well as buying numerous models for friends, family and colleagues over the last 15 years....I'd actually venture to say I've "Invested" over $5K in the company...HA!
As a Marine with over 30 years active duty and nine combat deployments, my gear is important to me, Benchmade has ALWAYS performed to my standards...which are higher than most. When you absolutely need a knife to work, from cutting det cord, or cutting flesh, to digging a hole in a wall for a breaching charge, benchmade has never let me down...ever! I actually prefer the assisted opening to the automatic...just a preference. And I will say, I carry three when I go to the pointy end of the stick...one in my trouser pocket on a lanyard, one on my vest on a lanyard, and a fixed blade strapped to an ankle inside a boot...probably the most important...I will have one on me when they play Taps and send me to guard the pearly gates. To the folks at Benchmade, Bravo Zulu Ladies and Gentlemen...every time.

I've had my Barrage for almost a year now. I have had no complaints at all. I love the feel in my hand and the durability. The assisted open has come in handy so many times while I'm fishing, at work, wherever. It's seriously so convenient. I can't stand knives that don't have it now... it's ruined me, but in the best way possible! I hate to admit it, but I let it go through the wash, so I just had it serviced to get a screw replaced. They not only replaced the screw, but Benchmade also replaced my bolster lining, my blade lock, and gave me a new thumb stud. Excellent knife and excellent customer service. I would recommend it to anyone.

I'm a first responder and have been carrying this knife for about 4 years. My one and only complaint is that the Valox grips are slippery when dry and super slippery when wet. I played with the G10 and G10/Aluminum at the SHOT show and they aren't that much better. Frankly, a Barrage-type knife with Presidio-type grips, or something from VZ grips would make the knife 100% better.

I ordered one of these through the custom knifes, I lost my Griptillan and decided to order one. there's is a lot I like about this knife, I love the assist open, the lock is cool and the S30V blade is awesome, but I just did not like the feel in my hands it seamed to be a bit slippery the Griptillan is far superior to this knife, I love the Griptillan but this one falls a bit short on how it feels in my hand, some may love it. but its not for me. I am giving it away as a Christmas gift

Outstanding knife. I opted for the custom Barrage with G10 Handle, Black S30V Blade with graphic on both sides and an initial on the other. I am impressed with the build quality and it arrived razor sharp. I like the G10 over the plastic, it gives the knife a better feel. The custom shop allows choices of every aspect of the knife, truly making it unique to the owner. I had some issues with the website and due to that I missed a discount they offered. I contacted the customer service department and due to the problem they extended the offer, which saved significantly on the custom knife. I was very impressed by their willingness to work with me and felt it went a long way to build new customer loyalty. I love the knife and am very pleased that all of the BM knifes are built in the USA. The Barrage will not be my last I am sure. I will use the knife primarily for outdoor sport, i.e. fishing, hunting, backpacking, etc. I think it is a bit large for EDC, but depending on the person carrying the knife, it could be okay. In summary I love the knife and am impressed with all aspects of the company.

I bought this blade in 2013. I have used it for eveything from filleting fish to shaving my face. I have reassembled it at least 100 times to sanitize and remove dirt inside and out. It has seen a lot of exposure to salt water and yet corrosion is figuratively non-existent. If I ever manage to lose this one, I know for a fact that I will be coming back to Benchmade for a knofe that should last a lifetime.
