The Benchmade Barrage was the first Benchmade knife to feature an assisted AXIS opening. Because of this, the blade springs open when the user starts to push on the thumb stud. The 3.60″ satin finish, drop point blade in 154CM steel will stay sharp and reliable use after use. The Barrage also feastures a reversible, tip up pocket clip and a lanyard hole on a black valox handle that allows for many carry options, it has an OAL of 8.35″ and a closed length of 4.75″. The integrated safety on the spine of the knife means the blade will not accidentally open in a pocket when engaged.
