benchmade 910 stryker

In the middle to the late 1990’s the Benchmade Knife Co. was doing custom collaborations with many makers of fine tactical one hand opening knives. One of the most popular makers that Benchmade aligned itself with was Allen Elishewitz. Allen is no stranger to knives and martial arts as an ex-marine ( in my opinion once a Marine, always a Marine) and practitioner of many types of martial arts including thai boxing and filipino kali escrima, he knows something about knives. I feel this is one major reason Benchmade and allen got along for so many years. At the time Allen was designing for Benchmade he came up with the design for the Benchmade 910 Stryker, a tactical folder with a modified tanto style blade that was specifically designed for piercing.

The knife was made of G-10 grips and full titanium liners with an adjustable blade pivot and thumb disc for quick openings. The steel of the day was 154CM rockwell hardened at 58-60. This knife at the time was in direct competition with the Emerson CQC7. In my humble the 910 Stryker was and still is the better of the two knives. Anyway the original Benchmade 910 Strykers went out of production until about 2006. There have been many iterations of this quality knife since the original. The knife has been made with M4 high speed tool steel as well as D2 tool steel. The thumb disc has been replaced with a thumb stud and now the model comes in an assisted opening model. No matter how you cut it the Stryker is still the Stryker and is still an excellent knife.

Here at Bonds House Of Cutlery we have a small cache of 10 of these original Benchmade 910BT Strykers with the 154CM steel in the original blue box. These are excellent knives and if you are an “old school” Benchmade knife collector then you will want one of these. The pic shown is of Benchmade 910 Stryker plain finish and plain blade.
