Full description

The Benchmade Proper 319-319 is the first ever slipjoint made by Benchmade. You open this gentleman's knife with two hands and it doesn't have a lock: a slipjoint. Ideal as a stylish gentleman's knife that won't scare anyone. Think of peeling an apple or cutting a nice juicy steak. In addition, a slipjoint can legally be carried in many places in Europe.

The blade has a classic design. The contours in no way resemble the rest of the modern Benchmade range. The droppoint-sheepsfoot combo that you see here is unique. The spine is somewhat slanted. An extra luxurious touch. The blade is made from CPM S30V steel. A modern type of powdered steel, specifically designed for high-end pocket knives. Within this category of slipjoints you won't find a lot of pocket knives enhanced with such a great type of steel. In addition, many enthusiasts will appreciate that Benchmade gave the Proper a stop-pin that prevents the spring from closing. A thorn in the face of many simple slip joints has been eliminated.

The handle is made from canvas micarta. It offers enough grip and is wear and tear resistant. The nice thing about this "rough" micarta is that it will naturally form its own 'Patina' It gets darker the more often you use the knife. Not a fan of the dark colour anymore? Simply degrease it with some petrol and the micarta will be almost as good as new again.

The best slip joint currently made. Light ergonomic. Was sharp when it arrived but could have been sharper so I sharpened it and I got a hair shaving edge in about 30 minutes which it has retained now for a couple or three weeks - it doesn’t have a hard life! The scales are lovely to hold smooth yet grippy. Yes the edge is thick so shaving wood is not its best use - if that’s what you’re into buy one of those giant scalpel blade knives. This is a genius design (I have the wharncliffe bladed) and cuts fruit, plant cuttings, parcels, and I wouldn’t have another. Just one point, it’s so light in your pocket put a nice lanyard on so you can get it out easily and it will help snag it if it makes a break for freedom, it’s too expensive to lose. Contrary to many reviews on this knife I don’t have an issue with it not springing shut easily as I consider that to be a safety issue much safer to have a knife that is predictable. I don’t see any advantage in having a knife snap shut. If you use a slip joint knife correctly - not as a stabbing device - it is very safe. In fact, if it snapped shut and you used it incorrectly you are far more likely to cut yourself. Go on, get one before they move onto the mark 2.

Excellent and upmarket slipjoint folder. Looks like it is going to last for ever. Highly recommended.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a cracking knife! It’s razor sharp out of the box, looks and feels premium quality in hand but being benchmade I expected the slipjoint mechanism to be stronger. I know it’s the first slipjoint they have made so there is plenty of room for improvement on their next model. I would say it’s definitely worth a purchase but bear in mind it’s not the strongest lock up
