After The Massive Success Of The Original Claymore, Benchmade Has Released The BK-1 Claymore. This Knife Has A Plain Edge, Is Crazy Tough, And Opens With Authority

The original Claymore from Benchmade was a rousing success, and the new BK-1 Claymore looks to follow in its footsteps. The BK-1 features the same resilient CPM-D2 blade 60-62 HRC, only this time the blade is fully ground to a plain edge instead of a partially serrated one. The 3.6-inch blade has a cobalt black finish.

The BK-1 is just as nimble as it is tough thanks to weighing only 3.5 ounces. The molded Grivory handle provides excellent grip, and the push-button auto fires it open with confidence. This is the type of construction we’ve come to expect from Benchmade, and in the BK-1 they’ve made an exciting, worthy successor to the original Claymore.

MSRP: $230
