Benchmade’s Barrage 581 (top) is a top seller. Right answer. The blade’s made of M390 steel. It incorporates the maker’s famously strong AXIS [of evil] Assist locking mechanism and combines G10 grips with 410SS stainless steel. And it’s purdy, thanks to designer Warren Osborne’s eye for elegance. No wonder, then, that Benchmade’s made a smaller version (2.91″ blade length vs. 3.60″) to capitalize on the 581’s ability to generate profits. Yes, well, there is that. Trading down saves you $10, bringing the 586’s price to between $215 to $230 MSRP depending on grips and blade. You’d have be sitting pretty, financially speaking, to pay that kind of freight for an everyday carry. But if you feel pretty in pink you can buy sister brand Lone Wolf’s new hot pink Mini-Landslide for less ($75). Make the jump to see the blade I couldn’t buy for my daughter—’cause they just started shipping them . . .
