Brand new for 2018 is the Benchmade 407SBK or also known as the "Vallation". This knife was a complete surprise for the first part of the year. It just "showed up" one day. This knife takes all of it's styling from Benchmade's black class automatic knives and creates an assisted opening knife that is more accepted around the country where autos are prohibited. The blade is a drop point in CPM-S30V with a Mohawk spine for great thumb purchase. The handles are anodized aluminum and extremely durable. A glass breaker tip has been added to the end of this knife as well. Rounding it out is a deep carry clip that is both right or left handed.
This will be a great knife for those areas where an automatic knife is not allowed.
