Do not use your new knife as a screwdriver, prybar, chisel or punch. Do not throw

PERSONALIZED LASER MARKING
Put your name on it. Make it yours. Commemorate an event or outfit the club. Whatever
the circumstance, now you can have your logo or artwork laser etched onto any of
the Benchmade knives. Depending on the particular model, the mark can be placed
either on the blades, or in some models, on the handles. If you are interested in
this special service, simply call a Benchmade customer service representative at
800.800.7427. Basic set-up charges and quantity restrictions do apply.
*NEW* Basic text and logo lasermarking orders can be placed online by customizing
your knife(s) in your shopping cart.
Benchmade knives are high-performance cutting tools made from some of the finest
materials in the world. Even though we use these select materials it is still important
to use proper care and maintenance to ensure optimum performance levels. Always
keep your knife blade sharp. A dull knife requires additional force to use and is
potentially more dangerous to use than a sharp one. There are a variety of products
available when it comes to sharpening your knife. Benchmade also offers a
LifeSharpsm service to its customers, which is a nice convenience.
As for which one is best, it pretty much comes down to choosing the one you're most
comfortable with using. Never sharpen your knife on a power-grinding wheel as this
can burn the temper out of the blade and weaken its integrity.
Always keep the locking areas of your knife clean- accumulation of dirt or debris
could adversely affect the locking mechanism creating a potential safety hazard.
To clean these areas we recommend using compressed air and lubricating with the
specialty lubricant, BlueLube.
Most of our blade steels have a very high carbon content which enables them to hold
a superior cutting edge. Unfortunately, carbon is also the element that causes rust
so, preventive care is required if the knife is used in humid or marine environments.
To aid in the cleaning of rust on the blades, we recommend using a fine grade, semi-chrome
polish. A product such as marine Tuf-Cloth™ works well to not only wipe down the
blade for cleaning but, also adds an invisible coating for added corrosion protection
without leaving any oily film which may attract dirt and debris. Lightly lubricate
the pivot of the blade periodically to keep it operating smoothly.
Never attempt to use your knife as a screwdriver, pry-bar, chisel, or punch. Never
throw your knife. It was not designed for those purposes. Use for any purpose other
than cutting is considered abuse and is not covered under the Benchmade
Warranty. DO NOT disassemble your Benchmade knife. Disassembly by anyone
other than the Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. Warranty/Repair Department will void
the warranty! Minimum charge to reassemble your knife is $20.00 plus parts.
Most of all please enjoy your new knife and always remember to use it in a safe,
responsible manner. Thank you for choosing Benchmade.
