Presidio II Family

Product Review (submitted on January 13, 2019):
I bought this Knife (Presidio 5700SBK) about 2 weeks ago after saving and indecision I decided on the Presidio. I have the kind of comparable Adamas also but the Presidio is a bit different. If you have to save, beg, borrow and are shopping for a Knife THIS is the one to buy, either Auto or Manual you will be 110% satisfied. It came shaving sharp outta the Box, it was extremely tight with zero blade play in either direction as ALL Benchmade Knives are from the Factory. The lock up is positive and secure thanks to the awesome Axis lock, the Auto version deploys lightning fast with a positive thud that shakes your forearm, THIS IS A SOLID BUILT BEAST OF A KNIFE! I say for some it’s not a EDC knife but I carry 2 and the Presidio is definitely one of them. The only sad part about my purchase is replacing my Adamas for the Presidio (put the Adamas in my nightstand). As I stated if your shopping for a large EDC or folder the Presidio is built like a Tank and may be the one for you. I and my active Duty Sons have trusted there lives to a Benchmade Knife and I would certainly trust mine to this Presidio without hesitation. Just that statement alone should sway you to purchase this or any other Benchmade offerings. I’ve owned several for years with ZERO FAILURES. I’m saying buy from Benchmade, there CS is the best around by far also. My Sons and myself have swayed various different brand owners to switch and they couldn’t be happier. Thank you for reading my short story.
