417 Fact®

Product Review (submitted on May 25, 2018):
My first Benchmade knife was purchased in 1980 and I have been a Benchmade fan eversince. I have been waiting a long time for Benchmade to make a knife like the 417 and the wait was well worth it. My main purpose for purchasing this knife is for EDC and the fact that knowing if I ever need its other purpose, its in my pocket. I have had this knife for a month now and I am very pleased with its style, weight, materials used and grip. I do have other knives that I have used as EDC only knives but this knife has a dual purpose which the other knives lack. For me, it carries very well and fits deep in my pocket, plus its light weight and slim design add to is carry ability. Other knives that I have used for EDC with with a comparable blade length are heavier and do not carry as well and seem to take up too much pocket space and are heavy. In short, I am very pleased with this knife.
