Rated 5 out of 5 by fstop Better than advertised
This knife is all that I had hoped it would be. It is light and tight, not to mention very sharp. The blade material is advertised to be 154CM stainless steel. The knife I received has a blade of S30V stainless steel, which is fine with me. If you know knifes then you know the S30V stainless is one of the best knife steels on the market today. The blade locks up rock solid with no hint of play. I am a happy camper. This is a great knife in my opinion and should last for many years of hard use.

I have had the Osborne for almost 1 year and use and carry it everyday.
It is my 3rd Benchmade I like this blade the best it keeps a very sharp edge. It does a nice job cleaning Pheasants as well. Very Happy customer.

Over the years I have owned several Benchmade knives and I have never been let down. I put a knife through many extreme conditions and have found that quality and craftsmanship always excel and hold up far longer than sub-par design and materials. This really is a stunning knife. If you prize a high quality blade and are not afraid to spend a few bucks this knife will be a welcomed friend for years to come.

I have had this knife for a couple of years now. I have used it almost everyday and it still is in great condition. It is easy to open with one hand, even when I wear gloves. The blade holds its edge and with a little work I can get it sharp enough to shave with. I have owned dozens of knives in my life and this is by far the best of them all. If you can afford this knife buy it, you will not be disappointed.
