The tactical knife is, without a doubt, the single-most useful tool you can have in your every day carry arsenal. Weather you need it for something as mundane as finally getting into one of those impossible-to-open, ridiculous plastic packages or as heroic as rescuing a trapped motorist from a fiery wreck by cutting through a seat belt, a good tactical and survival knife should always be on hand.
And because hardly anyone makes tactical knives better than Benchmade, we teamed up with the brand to reward our readers for their longstanding support with another fantastic giveaway. If you’ve always wanted a custom-engraved Benchmade knife, now’s your chance. Simply enter below to add your name to the pool.
One first-prize winner will receive the Benchmade 818 Mini Loco Premium Tactical Knife with custom laser engraving. According to Greg hall, Benchmade Product Line Manager, “This overbuilt, premium tactical knife features refined custom hardware. Smaller than its big brother, the 818 is perfect for everyday carry or as a backup knife.” And with an AXIS lock mechanism, a reverse tanto blade style, a blade made from CPM S30V premium stainless steel, and a black G10 handle with stainless steel liners, this knife is as strong and refined as it is useful. The blade’s length comes in at 3.38 inches, with a total open length of 7.62 inches and a total weight of a mere 4.47 ounces, meaning it’s light enough for even the most discerning of backpackers.
Total Retail Value: $225 + $50 of customization
One second-prize winner will receive a “Food, Water, Knives” t-shirt, a Benchmade 30th Anniversary water bottle, a guided field sharpener, and a folding tool kit. All of these are great additions to any man’s every day carry kit, especially the folding tool kit, which will help keep your Benchmade knives functioning properly long into the future.
