Since its inception, the Benchmade knife company has always prized quality over quantity, slowly and meticulously designing and crafting each one of its models using an extensive and highly-calculated R&D process — a fact that’s earned the Oregon City outfit one of the most revered reputations in the knife and EDC spaces. And while traditionally, the company has unveiled a new model every few months, Benchmade has opted to take a different route for 2022, debuting a whopping ten new knifes for the new year.

This massive new release is comprised of seven completely novel designs, as well as a pair of updated fan favorites and an ultra-premium Gold Class variant of one of the brand’s most renowned EDC knives. From the company’s rugged and outdoor-focused Hunt Class, Benchmade has debuted an updated version of the wildly-popular Meatcrafter (15500OR-2) camp chef knife, along with the all-new Taggedout 15535 folding knife, the skinny fixed blade Flyaway 15700, and the top-shelf fixed-blade Raghorn 15600OR — which are priced at $400, $190, $200, and $370, respectively. From Benchmade’s military and LE-spec tactical Black Class range, the knifemaker has debuted the new OTF Shootout 5370FE model, the Redoubt 430BK folder, and an updated version of the automatic Claymore 9070BK — which are priced at $300, $180, and $230. Benchmade has also expanded its everyday-use Blue Class with the beefy fixed blade AИOИIMUS 539GY and the top-shelf SAK-style Weekender — which are priced at $290 and $250. Rounding out Benchmade’s 2022 release is a spare-no-expense, Gold Class version of the beloved Mini Osborne (945-211), which has been bestowed with a Damasteel Ægir-pattern reverse tanto blade that’s been paired with carbon Arctic Storm scales before being decorated via a gold-plated floating backspacer and aqua-anodized bolsters and thumb studs. This top-shelf limited-edition knife has a $700 price tag.

Each model from Benchmade’s entire 2022 Knife collection is slated for a release over the coming months — with some models debuting later this January and February while others are scheduled for releases later this Spring and Summer — with pricing starting from $180 and going up to $700.
