Benchmade Model 730 Ares Knife

Benchmade Model 730 Ares Knife

Larson, John

Designed by noted knifesmith Allen Elishewitz, the new Benchmade Model 730 combines rugged ergonomics with broad functionality. Featuring the exclusive AXIS locking mechanism and dual thumb-studs, the 730 is perfect for ambidextrous single-handed operation, and the two-toned G-10 composite handle scales, machined with a dimensional contour styling, offer increased “gripability” and maximum blade control. Its 3.6″ blade is also the first made of 154-CM steel, and features a generous cutting surface. A steel carrying clip is attachable to either handle side, and a lanyard hole is added for extra security. The Model 730 starts at around $160. For more information, call 800-8007427, or send e-mail to info@benchmade.com; you may also visit the company’s website over the net at www.benchmade.com.
