BM890: Torrent™ - Steigerwalt Design
Benchmade

This Ken Steigerwalt design makes for a perfect EDC (everyday carry).
This is a nice folder. Contoured G10 handles and a polished, deep pocket clip and a textured handle spacer looking sort of like file work make this a stylish item. It has a simplicity to it that is appealing. It is full sized and the weight is significant compared to some others, but these things are a matter of taste.

Cons: None
Very Sharp
I cut myself on this knife! We get a lot of knives in here at www.knifecenter.com and I handle most of them, but this one fooled me. Most assisted openers have a spring that gives some resistance when you start closing them. This one, however, doesn't resist until it's half closed. I moved the liner lock over and and started closing it and the blighter caught my thumb tip. Nothing serious- more a pride thing. OK, enough about me, this is a nice folder. Contoured G10 handles an a polished, deep pocket clip and a textured handle spacer looking sort of like file work make this a stylish item. It has a simplicity to it that is appealing. It is full sized and the weight is significant compared to some others, but these things are a matter of taste.

Beautiful knife, but unreliable
This is my first Benchmade knife that I owned, and there are things I love about the knife, and some things that I don't. To start, the knife is a beauty. Good steel, great scales, deep carry pocket clip. Torsion bar deployment is smooth and effortless. Glass breaker tip is cool feature, although I am yet to attempt to break glass with it. Here are the cons: The torsion bar mechanism has a tiny metal bar holding everything together. God forbid you lose it when cleaning the knife, you're in trouble. No jimping anywhere on the blade, which is a matter of taste. Liner lock seems a bit whimpy. Blade play. If you tighten the pivot screw a little much, the blade will not deploy. Blade does not close centered. Here is my biggest problem with it, I don't know if anyone else had this issue but this happened to me on several occasions. When I tried to get the blade deployed in a hurry, I instictively grabbed the knife pretty hard, not death grip, but I was holding onto it with some pressure, expecting the blade to kick out with some force. The BLADE DEPLOYED HALF WAY AND STOPPED. I had literally had stopped the blade mid-deployment just by holding the knife tight. Cut my finger in the process as I was expecting the blade to be fully deployed and went to move my fingers around the scales. I find this completely unacceptable. Not to mention that the knife opened in my pocket on a number of occasions. I wouldn't trust this knife in a pinch. That's why I bought a Tenacious. This will be my carry to a fancy event where it will look nice a decoration. But I will be entrusting my work and life into something else.
