Not much is known about this knife yet. Supposedly it’s made form stainless steel and should be roughly the same size as the old Benchmade 42. From the pictures it’s clear that it’s sandwich construction and retains the zen pins from the 42 design. No word on the actual specifications at this point, but as soon as more info is available we’ll post it here.
