Mini Auto Stryker

Product Review (submitted on August 8, 2017):
I've had the knive for a couple weeks now and it's quite impressive. It's light and small enough that I don't notice it clipped in my pocket, the action of the blade is smooth and snaps open with authority. This is my 5th Benchmade Knife and I've had s30v steel and the 154cm,the former is supposed to have better edge retention than the latter. In my experience the 154cm is the better steel,but this of course is subjective. One thing to be aware of is the flat chalk board like paint on the handle, though grippy will scratch very easily but to me this is a non issue as this is a cutting tool that gets used daily. If I had a suggestion for improvement it would be the blade deployment button,as it's pushed in, the pin that contacts the notch in the blade is grabby choppy and rough. If the notch in the blade were polished at factory it would be smooth as butter from the get go. I'm sure with more use it will break in. All in all what great piece of equipment! Well done Benchmade
