Benchmade ProperWhether you’re a Benchmade fan or simply a fan of nice knives, you can’t go wrong with the Benchmade Proper. It’s Benchmade’s modern take on a classic gentleman folder.  It has the same light weight, the same thin body, and the same nail pull opening mechanism of a traditional folder, but Benchmade added a ton of added durability to the mix.

Featuring a 2.8” CPM-S30V clip point model or a sheepsfoot model with a satin finish, the Benchmade Proper is a fantastic knife that will take and hold an excellent edge. At .09″ thickness, the thin blade makes an excellent slicer. This slipjoint folder has a nail pull opening mechanism. The half-stops add a significant amount of safety to this super sharp knife and help prevent the blade from accidentally closing on your fingers.

With a very thin body of only 0.4 inches wide, and a closed length of 3.85 inches the Proper is an easy carry that practically disappears in your pocket.  Additionally, the red G-10 handles are colorful enough to stand out in the field, and rugged enough to endure a variety of tasks.  The overall feel and build of this knife is as outstanding as you expect from any Benchmade product.
