The Benchmade 980 is brand new for 2019. Benchmade wanted to make a beefier heavy duty knife that could double as an everyday carry as well. The blade is an CPM-S30V that comes in at 3.70 inches and is .12 inches thick. The handle is an OD green G10 with stainless liners. Of course this is all backed up by the famous AXIS lock. Finishing it off is a deep carry clip for that secure pocket carry.
