About Benchmade

This is Benchmade. This is homegrown, American steel. Predatory tools and vigilant defenders. These are blades you can count on.

Originally christened as Bali-Song (a term you may have heard of), this renowned knife manufacturer got started in 1979 in California. After changing its name to Benchmade, the company moved up to Oregon and has been making top-notch American products ever since. (Also, because the knife laws are a bit more relaxed in that state. Well done, Benchmade. That’s a smart move.)

The classic Benchmade knife is without a doubt the reliable Griptilian, an automatic opener that boasts the patented AXIS locking mechanism, CPM-M4 premium steel blade with highly resistant properties, and an ambidextrous thumb-stud opener. All built right here at home in America, with Benchmade’s special recipe for heat treating their steel, and backed up by their LifeSharp service, which promises to re-sharpen any blade supported by their Lifetime Warranty. If you can think of a product more suited to the GovX lifestyle, we’re all ears.

With a variety of styles available for whatever the mission is, your Benchmade military discount gets you access to number of options. Testimonials from proud owners tell stories of combat, rescues, deployments, and enduring harsh environments. Benchmades have journeyed into the America’s outdoors, as well as the most hostile regions in the War on Terror. Clipped to a pilot’s flight suit, secured in a hiker’s belt, or even just resting in a car’s glove compartment in case of emergencies, these knives can tell all kinds of stories. What story will your Benchmade tell?
