The Benchmade 575-1 Manual Mini Presidio II is a more everyday carry friendly version of this legendary, folding combat knife design. This version retains the S30V drop-point blade and robust steel liner construction but the scales have been replaced with Benchmade’s new ultralight, Black CF-Elite material that offers exceptional performance at a more affordable price point with no sacrifices where it counts. A compact folder, the 575-1 Manual Mini Presidio II is built to uncompromising specifications making this a perfect little workhorse folder for EDC. The 575-1 comes with a media blast gray finished, plain edge blade.
Brand new, direct from Benchmade Knives, USA.
Blade: Drop point blade is made from high performance, American CPM S30V for well balance performance. The high height saber grind makes the blade very strong without sacrificing slicing performance and a nearly full length swedge enhances the piercing capabilities of this knife over a traditional saber grind. Durable phosphor bronze washers make for smooth deployment via the dual thumb studs.
Handle: Made with Benchmade’s new ultralight Black molded CF-Elite, the handle scales offer traction, durability and easy maintenance. Compact, the handles still offer a full grip with just under 4.5″ in length. Attached to rigid steel liners, the 575-1 is still a substantial folder especially paired with the ambidextrous AXIS lock system. The AXIS lock is smooth, reliable, strong and ambidextrous making the 575-1 a great choice for left or right-handed users.
Carries via a black oxide finished, reversible (tip-up) deep carry stainless steel pocket clip.
CPM-S30V: A powdered stainless steel with high levels of edge retention and corrosion resistance S30V was developed specifically for use in knife blades. The powdered process gives it a very refined grain, improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
