Benchmade 781 Anthem

Benchmade is known for making some of the most masterful EDC knives ever imagined. But, as well all know, there is always room for improvement. Apparently, they are very much aware of that fact too, as evidenced by their latest creation: the Benchmade 781 Anthem.

This everyday carry folder is the first ever knife featuring Benchmade’s signature AXIS lock to have a handle made from a single piece of billet titanium. Apart from the clear beauty of the bronze anodized titanium handle, its construction also means that it is far slimmer than similar knives in its category – 0.43″ overall, to be exact. It’s also shockingly light, weighing in at only 3.66 ounces. And that’s especially impressive when you consider that this knife is 8.06″ long when deployed. But wait, there’s more – the Anthem features a CPM-20CV steel blade (a top-quality blade steel) and has a machined chevron pattern on the handle for superb grip in all conditions. This kind of mastery will cost you, however, as it retails for $500. If you ask us, that’s a worthwhile investment.

Purchase: $500
