The brand new 581 Barrage is probably the most awesome assisted knife in the marketplace. Benchmade has improved on a really perfect design by adding an aluminum bolster, a contoured G10 maintain, and M390 super steel blade. The 581 still employs the Axis help mechanism for super fast opening, reversible pocket clip for right or left handed carry, and it has a secondary lock for additonal security. It is a hot one, we on the Knife Gallery think it’s the front runner for knife of the year.
