Description
BM890: 890 Torrent | Steigerwalt Design
Benchmade
 
This Ken Steigerwalt design makes for a perfect EDC (everyday carry).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.

This was a Christmas gift for my son, we both loved the look and feel of the knife, and it's Benchmade so quality is a given. So wrong was I. What do you do with a new knife? You play with it, my son has not used this knife for anything except opening and closing. In under two weeks the screws came loose, and will not stay tight! The assist no longer works, so this $150.00 paper weight now stays in a junk drawer. I know car companies have recalls for lemons, how about it Benchmade do what's right!

Clean lines, great for EDC.
I wonder if the other reviewers who lost the screws have ever heard of lock-tite? In my experience it's good to check the pocket clip screws of any knife every once in a while to make sure they're tight. Anyhow, this knife has clean, graceful lines and mine at least has great fit and finish, no tooling marks or blemishes. The grind was a little toothy but that's pretty common for production knives. The thumb stud isn't the best design but the assist mechanism overrides the problem by making this a hard-firing blade. I also wonder if the reviewers who say their knives stopped opening properly have bothered to clean their blades-- any gunk inside any knife can stop it from opening properly. Pocket clip is one position only, this is not the knife for a lefty; the thumb stud is one-sided also. Great and useful glass-breaker pommel is indeed a good bottle opener. To me the liner lock seems adequate. No "traction plan" for tactical use, but as a daily carry knife it is great. Aside from the smoothness of the handles, this is a fantastic, good-looking, utilitarian design. Don't let it close on your fingers!
