Not sure yet if this will become my decent blade yet but I just got this today. We did a group buy on them and got a great deal. The side tape is just covering my last name and the last four of my social which we are required to have on personel tools used on or around our aircraft.

Very nice. Did Benchmade do the etching or did you guys have to have that done through a third party?

Benchmade did all the engraving for us as well took around 3-4 weeks for the batch.

That's an awesome deal. Good looking knife.

Thats cool! Which model is that? I'm usually not a fan of Benchmade, but that knife looks like something I could really use!

It's the triage model.

I've wanted to try the triage for a while, a good review would be awesome once you put it to some use and get a feel for it.

Well I will give you my opinions thus far the hopefully a more in-depth review later.  

 

The scales are good and grippy without being sharp or unpleasant in the hand.  I am already a huge fan of the AXIS lock system and think it is one of if not the best lock for a pocket knife on the market.  I love having the shroud cutter on me all the time and the shroud cutter on the Triage is low profile and really doesn't make the knife any bigger but is there if you need it.  I have noticed that I tend to find the glass breaker a little annoying thus far as much as I like having it I have noticed that I have a tendency to hook a thumb in my pocket when i am just standing around usually resting the thumb along the knife and because of that the glass breaker tends to rub on the inside of my thumb.

I really want a Triage, but I'd like the 916 blade style in an automatic. And orange. But I guess I'm being picky.

While I breathe I shall defend.
