Product Review (submitted on September 7, 2018):
Purchased this knife in 2013 when told we were deploying possibly to Afghanistan. 5 years later I still love this knife, carry it everyday in all my roles in the military, as a law enforcement officer and just around town. The knife is solid, has been through hell with me in terms of what I use it for and never fails. The blade thickness alone shows it's made to do serious work.
It's a great knife, impresses a lot of people when you pull it out as they aren't use to seeing a knife that big and heavy duty. Only thing I'd change if I had to do it again was I'd buy the black version as the tan sticks out a bit when wearing black pants or even dress pants. Otherwise this is a great knife, my second Benchmade I've owned and probably the last one I'll ever buy.
