Exceptional quality. Rock solid opening and closing. Incredible edge. Best EDC (military) for work I've ever owned. Clean lines, great scales, and a brilliantly designed opening mechanism. Well worth the cost. Benchmade hits a grand slam again!

I've carried one for years and still do. It's easy to open, sharpen and holds a edge well. This is the thinnest coolest auto I've ever owned. I keep 2 extra in my safe just incase something happens to one. Awesome!

I've had this knife for about a month. I had a triage before this one and wanted an auto opener. The opening is almost to the point of violent. Definitely not skimping on spring tension for this knife. The opening lock is solid, but can be hard to actuate with gloves on. The knife has an amazing dagger look to it. I use the full side to open letters with. Closing the knife can be a little tricky if you're not paying attention. But that is the nature of an auto opener. Would recommend for anyone looking for an auto opener EDC.

Bought this knife in texas on a trip. Love the finish and action of the knife. The blade is sharp out of the box and holds its edge great. The button to deploy the blade is super easy the access and feels natural. Overall this is a extremely high quality knife and i highly recommend it. There are a few things that bother me however, the clip that comes with the knife is not a deep carry clip, the safety on the top of the knife grinds when you use it and i don't like the way it feels. Finally i know it is a tactical knife but for what i use it for (edc) i wish i could apply pressure to the top of the blade. The way the handle and blade come together makes it hard to apply a lot of downward torque to the blade. But other than being picky i love this knife and while i have probably 30 other knifes it is my edc.

Purchased this before sending my AFO was away for a tune-up. It's tiny by comparison (which makes the price a tad steep IMO), but quick and nimble. Will likely stay in my bag as a utility/secondary blade or pass it off to my wife once the AFO comes back. Easily concealed in a pocket or sock, solid mechanism, feels every bit a Benchmade. Not unhappy at all.

I've had it for about a year now and it easily has become my most prized and efficient knife I've ever had ! I have had previous Benchmade product in the past like 2550SBK which was great but in my opioion the 3550 Purdue, its been stronger of the two ,just for the reason I've waited a year to send this in cause I use it so much !
