Benchmade531 mel pardue 154cm knife technically “The Benchmade 531 AXIS” is a Pardue Designed Knife. Mel Pardue has been making blades for more than 25 years. He has collaborated with Benchmade who is focused on assembling world-class cutlery apparatuses. Their items convey unrivaled execution and esteem. These thin and lightweight blades are ideal for your pocket. The Benchmade mel pardue 154cm knife cutting edge is made of 154CM stainless steel with hardness of 58-61 Rc. The handles are made of dark and dim G-10 scales with a herringbone design. The sharp edge bolt is the licensed Benchmade elite AXIS bolt. The dark covered pocket clasp is reversible in the tip-up position and removable.
With a sharp edge stock thickness under a tenth of an inch (0.09″), and such a high level pound, this thing is bounty thin behind the edge, which makes cutting a delight, and on account of the lance point shape and swedge at the tip it penetrates shockingly better than it cuts.
Benchmade chosen to keep a similar cutting edge steel for this redesigned plan, which is a touch of disillusioning, however simply because I’ve been ruined by this overcome new universe of steel science. The 154CM that is utilized as a part of the 531 is an impeccably sufficient steel regardless of my failure. It’s successfully a redesigned adaptation of 440C, once the lord of sharp edge steels in the US until the more up to date, sexier arrangement of super steels touched base on the scene over 10 years back.
As cutting edge steels go, 154CM is all around adjusted between stain resistance, wear resistance, and hardenability, and Benchmade figures out how to press out a Rockwell hardness of 58-60. Beyond any doubt I would have favored S30V however you can’t have everything.
Generally speaking, Benchmade made a totally phenomenal showing with regards to of enhancing the edge on the 531, while as yet respecting the first plan of Mel Pardue in the 530.
