It seems nowadays that every gun show features innumerable display cases of knives of every imaginable construction—fixed blades, flip blades, serrated edges, blunt tips, hooks, and anything else you could imagine. But often it’s hard to know what quality to expect from these, and each vendor seems to have their own focus, be it self-defense knives or hunting knives. The product is scattered among many sellers and you take what you find when you find it. If only you could have the benefit of a stable, centralized collection to make comparison simple.
Second Amendment has just such a collection. We stock every kind of knife you could think of for every potential purpose. Every knife is a well-crafted piece, coming from manufacturers that we’ve vetted as putting out quality work. We enforce high standards for materials as well as construction to offer only those brands we’re willing to stand behind.
One such brand and a highlight of our selection is Benchmade Knives. For over twenty-five years, Benchmade has crafted top-of-the-line knives for the clients including elite backcountry hunters and special operations units, and the rigorous standards they demand of their products shows in big ways, producing a vast array of options suited to any task. These high quality knives come with the confidence of knowing it was Made in America.
One might think that a knife blade is made from steel and that’s all there is to it, but that’d be doing a disservice to Benchmade and the lengths to which they go to provide the optimum product for any customer: they offer no less than eleven distinct premium-grade steel alloys for their blades. These vary in edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance, so that you can get the blade best fitted to your intended use for your knife.
The handle materials, too, are held to the same standards. Seven different aerospace-grade materials including carbon fiber, Santoprene, and titanium, all offer various qualities including durability, flexibility, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability. For every job and every environment, there’s a perfect combination of materials available.
Believe it or not, the forms of the knives themselves vary even more than the materials they’re made from.
