    This guy looks like it hales from the years when benchmade’s QC matched up with its reputation. I haven’t seen another one of these on any of the forums over the last few years, and I don’t know the model name. It came to me in a griptilian box and that’s how I’m shipping it out.

    If anyone has more info on it please feel free to post in the comments.

    This knife has great ergos and perfectly tuned action. Plus it’s in rare ATS-34 steel.

    There are some minor signs of carry on the clip and on the DLC coated metal scales/body. (That’s right, it’s not G-10).

    But the blade appears to be unused. Still has the factory edge and there are no scratches or blemishes anywhere on it.

    I really like this knife, but my collection is heading in a different direction these days, and I’m short on cash at the moment...

    So to make for a quick sale I’m pricing this guy to move. I believe this is a steal for this rare bird. Please let me know if I’m off base.

    Price: $110
    — includes PP G&S and Shipping to ConUS

    Thanks er’ body!

    Edit:
    Props to JungleJim65 for the ID. This is a Benchmade 720. Looks like they started being produced around 20 years ago. The handle is aluminum with DLC.
