Benchmade Proper 319By: Simon on 13 February 2018I'll start this review by saying how helpful the staff at Knifshop Australia are. They helped me by selecting the Benchmade Proper with excellent fit and finish and blade centering, and arranging prompt postage. Once recieved I was impressed, the size is perfect for EDC, the green micarta handle is beautiful, and should devlop a nice patina over time. I have it on good authority that the S30V that Benchmade uses has an excellent heat treat, so no worries there. The known issues with S30V should not be an issue here as this knife is perfect for light EDC tasks, and thge size makes it perfect for office carry. If I had to pick one thing it is that the knife needed some slight adjustments to my preference and that the factory edge, although quite sharp, was not as neat as it could be. Overall an excellent example of a modern slipjoint, with modern touches suc as screw construction, PB washers and modern steel.
