A review from: Theo
This knife is amazing. Out of the box the action is somewhat stiff and hard to open and close but after flipping it for a couple of days it was perfect. The knife is razor sharp and through a lot of use the edge held up extremely well. There is absolutely no play in the blade and the knife locks firmly into place. The handle is large and offers multiple ways to hold the knife comfortably. I have many benchmade knives and this is my favorite. Only negative is the titanium scales get scratched too easily.
A review from: Sean
Out of the box this knife had a razor edge and a comfortable feel in my size large hands. The weight is great for its size and has the characteristics of a sports car with its elegance and swift smooth action; however, with the good there's always the bad. Ive had this blade for a little over a week now and I have some very concerning issues. The first is out of the box the blade was not centered.Adjusting the pivot screw would not make a bit of a difference and when your paying for a knife with this price tag that should be a detail not over looked by qc, but it can happen so I understand to some extent. Second major issue is the lock bar flexes and fails with vertical pressure making mine somewhat unsafe and adjusting the hex lock bar insert to time the knife more towards the center just creates blade play. Honestly a fixed lockbar instert would change a big part of my oppinion for this knife. Also jimping on the spine and choil would be nice to have to give the knife a more secure grip. Another upset about the 928, which I was excited for being an m390 fan was, for some reason every day use on the blade like cutting boxes, foam, rope, or scraping stickers off glass I started noticing micro chips/cracks along the blade to the point where I could chip them out with my fingernail. I couldn't believe this was all happening to my knife. I'm a huge benchmade fan and will continue to be, I've had many of their knives and still do. They are a very good company and osborne was a great designer and fabricator but this knife is a big upset
A review from: Thomas
I had been waiting for the 928 since I first saw pictures of it.

It is a strong folder that is lightweight with amazing steel.

It hasn't disappointed me in any way. It deploys quickly with amazing speed. The blade steel is amazing, holds an amazing edge and is very resistant to staining. CPM 20CV is one of the best steels out there for a hard user.

Warren Osborne and Benchmade hit it out of the park with this one.

Loved it so much that I bought a second one.

Get one, you will love it.
A review from: Patrick
The Proxy is a larger knife than I am used to carrying but has worn well because it is light for its size as result of the titanium and g10 frame. Blade has held an edge very well in moderate use over the first few days of use. Opening takes some getting used to but is smooth as silk after a little hands on time. Beautiful design from the late Warren Osborne. Highly recommend but I am not sure if will become my EDC (mainly because I have too many other Benchmades).
