Benchmade Mediator 8551BK


A tactical knife doesn’t always need to be overbuilt to serve its purpose. Taking the best from some of our favorite legacy designs, the new 8551SBK Mediator® is Benchmade’s latest push-button automatic. With milled chevron-pattern G10 handles and a CPM-S90V reverse tanto blade, the Mediator® is a sleek switchblade with lightning-fast action. Made in USA.
