Brand new directly from Benchmade Knives.
The Blade: The drop point blade of CPM S30V offers upgraded edge retention over the original Triage while still maintaining a high level of corrosion resistance and toughness for worry free use. The Tactical Triage sports a nearly full length swedge along the spine ending in a fine point for piercing when the situation requires. A high height saber grind provides a good combination of strength and slicing performance and the black coating offers a discreet, non-reflective and corrosion resistant finish. The partially serrated section makes quick work of webbing and other fibrous materials. Dual thumb studs paired with phosphor bronze washers and the AXIS lock mechanism for fast, smooth, ambidextrous deployment even with gloves on.
The Handle: The Tactical Triage 917SBK offers contoured G10 scales over stainless steel liners for a rock solid platform that offers a comfortable and secure grip. The liners house the ambidextrous AXIS lock mechanism for reliable security under stress as well as a 440C folding rescue hook that zips through clothes, boots and webbing along with a carbide glass breaker tip providing access when the seconds count. Optimally placed jimping throughout enhances grip security in a variety of positions.
Carries via a Reversible (tip-up), deep carry stainless steel clip with black oxide finish.
CPM S30V: A martensitic, powdered stainless steel with high levels of wear and corrosion resistance. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. This gives it a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
