  Build Your Ultimate Bugout for National Knife Day 2023

The Benchmade Mini Osborne features a smaller 2.92" blade, brought down from the original knife’s 3.4" length. It keeps the unique flat-ground reverse tanto blade shape of the original however, including the top swedge that makes it easy to stick this knife in thin spaces and the curve at the tip that makes for excellent detail slicing when the task calls for it. Its CPM-S30V stainless steel blade composition means it can achieve and retain a sharp edge for longer, and you should be able to use this knife for utility tasks without having to worry about it getting dull quickly.

The black G-10 handle matches the blade’s stealthy finish, and helps keep the overall knife lightweight at 2.19 ounces. The reduced size means it’s also lighter than the original while still having enough ergonomics for a full grip for most people. The scales’ blue base layer also gives them a nice accent when viewing the knife at an angle. And it’s easy to deploy the blade with either hand using the manual ambidextrous thumbstud, with the AXIS lock keeping everything in place even during hard use.
