The 9500 Mini Auto-Stryker Knife from Benchmade is a smaller version of the Auto-Stryker, but it still features all advantages of its larger sibling including BK1 Blade Coating for unrivaled blade protection. All components are made from non-reflective components for use in tactical applications. The Tanto blade shape is designed for maximum piercing power, to absorb shock, and enhance tip strength.
The 9500 Mini Auto-Stryker Knife has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing. The front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. The only negative aspect of the tanto blade shape is the cutting surface area is sacrificed to gain tip strength.
With its Button Auto Open mechanism, this Benchmade 9500 Mini Auto-Stryker Knife is restricted to Active Duty Military and Law Enforcement, and is federally regulated. The blade is deployed out from the handle side like traditional folding knives, but the blade is spring open assisted to a fully locked position. The Benchmade autos take full advantage of a powerful coil spring blade actuator coupled with our precisely machined taper lock mechanism, proving itself to be the most reliable system available in auto open knives. And the patented integrated safety mechanism (located on handle spine) ensures that the blade will not inadvertently deploy or close once it is locked open. Benchmade autos are precision engineered and manufactured to perform in the real world, you would be hard pressed to find a superior tool.
