Founded in California in 1988, Benchmade started with a strong commitment to innovation and has continued with this mentality in producing quality knives since. When a customer purchases a Benchmade product, they should expect only the best in quality and hold these standards of excellence with no regard. Most of the products are hand assembled by hand selected and the best skilled people who know how to make it all work together for a fit that is only commonly found in a custom knife. Benchmade constantly works hard to make sure the customer doesn’t get “just a knife” but instead receives an engineered cutting tool that is built on function. Currently, Benchmade Knife Company, Inc manufactures knives for the constantly growing knife users and is in the process of undergoing more exciting opportunities, innovations and total world-class quality. Their mindset of innovating for improvement is definitely not the easiest way to make knives, but is the only way they know how.
