Benchmade Boost Federal Government Exclusive 590SBK-1 Tan Serrated
The Benchmade Boost Federal Government Exclusive 590SBK-1 is a cool edition of the Benchmade Boot. Enhanced with a serrated edge, a black coating on the blade and sand-coloured scales. The boost is a solid pocket knife with a strong assisted opening. This means that when opening the pocket knife it is supported by a strong spring. As such the blade will fly from the handle. When opened the Axis-lock will keep the blade in place.
To make sure the Boost doesn't open when you don't want it to the spine has been enhanced with a secondary lock. Move the latch forward and the blade will also stay in place when closed. The Benchmade Boost has a massive blade made from CPM 30V steel. An American metallurgical type of powder steel. Sounds difficult, but it is important for you to know that this is high-tech steel with excellent properties for a pocket knife. Good sharpness retention, excellent rust resistance and pretty good to sharpen yourself. With a length of 9.3 cm you can definitely call this a large blade. The partially serrated edge is great when cutting through rugged materials such as seat belts, rope or tie rips.
The handle is made from Versaflex. A light-weight thermo-plastic that feels great in hand. In terms of construction this pocket knife is completely symmetric. As such it is perfect for both left and right-handed use. The pocket clip is placed for right-handed use, but with the Torx T6 screwdriver you can easily change it for left-handed use.
- CPM-S30V blade steel offers top-notch cutting performance.
- Dual durometer handles provide a durable, grip enhancing build.
- Fully ambidextrous for right and left handed operation.
