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.

Excellent EDC blade for over 5 years
I have a first production run 890 Torrent (877/1000) and have used it regularly for around five years. I love this knife. It carries deep in the pocket and is nice and thin. The spring-assist and locking mechanism continue to work great. It does have to be cleaned every month or two or it does get a little gummy. I also had to locktite the pocket clip screws. Benchmade sent a new clip after I snagged the old one - the new clip is a nicer, low profile design.

Years of great service
I've read some of the negative reviews on this knife and just don't get it. I've had mine for 3 or 4 years now and have nothing but good things to say about it. I keep it sharpened on a regular basis, but that's the only thing I've ever done to it. No issues with the screws coming loose or the assist not working. Don't abuse your knife and then give it a bad review. Treat it like the tool that it is and you will enjoy it for years like I have.
