This is a great all around knife. The deployment is crisp and fast due to the assisted opening mechanism but if you want to open it a bit more discretely you can rather easily. Solid AXIS lock with an additional slide lock on the backbone which will either prevent accidental deployment or will prevent unwanted closing. I have never had an issue with either opening or closing without me intending to do so, thus I never really use the secondary lock but it is nice to have nonetheless. I find this knife to be very comfortable in hand, whether a standard or reverse grip. The blade is a healthy size without being too bulky or intimidating. I tend to favor the serrated blades because they are useful for wire stripping and several other tasks. Overall the knife has a solid weight, not too heavy, so it isn't a burden to carry. The pocket clip wasn't abhorrently stiff out of the box so I didn't fray pants pockets breaking it in. If you can only carry one knife to do a variety of tasks, this is definitely one to consider. Quality steel, rugged design, durable materials, can be opened and closed with one hand, and has a lanyard hole. Another quality Benchmade knife that delivers the features you need and none that you don't.

Benchmade Barrage Knife by Osborne Design w/ 3.6" Blade is a well made assisted opening knife. Sharp out of the box. Great handle shape, positive lock prevents accidental opening. Strong spring for the assisted opening. Handy size, serrated blade. Not too big or too small. Much stronger then the SOG it replaced. Well worth the price!

Shaving sharp out of the box, precise opening and closing, comfortable in the hand. This is a great knife for combat, hunting or general carry. the ordering process and shipping went flawlessly and I would recommend Opticsplanet and this knife without reservation.

About 15-20 years ago, I heard on the television news about a 60-year-old man who was walking on a secondary road on Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada) when he was attacked by a cougar. He protected his throat as much as possible. Luckily, he was carrying a pocket knife and was able to stab and kill the cougar. But, in doing so, he had to drop the arm that was protecting his throat because he had to use two hands to open his pocket knife. After the incident, he said, "I'm getting a knife you can open with one hand!" Well, this Benchmade Barrage knife can be flicked open with one hand. It is beautifully made, very sharp, and it stabs into cardboard quite nicely (think cougar). I own many knives and Benchmade products are right at the top of the list. Plus, you get a lifetime warranty.
