Benchmade recently released their first H&K knife designed by Steirer Eisen. This knife, the Monochrome Folder Knife, is built strong and durable for whatever circumstances you may find yourself in. The drop point blade is made of N690 stainless steel (RH of 58-60) and has a length of 3.04″. This all black blade looks and cuts good. The blade is opened with either of the ambidextrous thumb studs. As you slide it open, the blade opens smooth. As the blade opens, there is no feeling of looseness or wobble that you sometimes find with some folder knives. The blade locks in place with a monolock. A monolock is similar in nature and function to a framelock with a slightly different look. At a full 7.37″ when open, the Monochrome is a big enough knife to get nearly any job done.
The handle features some jimping at the top on both the spine and the belly of the handle. The jimping makes for a solid grip. The skeletonized handle reduces weight and gives the Monochrome a great look. Available in either a standard plain edge blade (Model 14320BK) or in a part serrated blade (Model 14320SBK), the Monochrome is a nice, affordable folder knife built by a company you can trust.
