As this review is being produced in early December 2012, I’m floored that there aren’t other reviews on the Benchmade Bedlam, auto or manual variants. When the knife was new, as early as I saw it advertised in _American Handgunner_, I placed an order for it. I’m a sucker for Persian-style blades, so that could explain my direct enthusiasm for the Bedlam. Despite, this is a finely made knife for those that also favor the beauty and function of an upswept, clip-point blade. I bought the Bedlam 8600BK, which is the auto variant of the plain edge blade. I haven’t had access to the manual variant, so, those that can not legally possess the auto variant should take this into account. I will concentrate on the positives 1st. This is a pocketable, movable knife, however by no means is it a gentleman’s folder, nominally because it has a pocket clip, it doesn’t have exotic materials in its make, and it’s on the big size. Fit and finish is top-notch for a production folder, and lockup is superb, with no motion of the expanded blade. The G10-scaled handle is in extra of 5 inches and quite smooth in spite of the striated texturing; I couldn’t find any “hot spots” except possibly around the pocket clip, which is de rigueur on any folder with a clip, however I also haven’t had an issue with a secure grip in wet or fast situations. The clip itself is easy to secure in all my pockets, which included Levi’s jeans and cargo shorts (thicker material), Champion athletic shorts ( thin material), Carhartt work- and informal pants, and Vertyx tactical pants.
What a great hunting or survival knife. Sharp as a razor blade and built rock hard. I bought the auto variant which I personally like. But, I live in Texas and autos are legal which makes the knife that much better. BUT. If you live in another state, check the law and trust me. The non auto is just as good, a tad bit cheaper and legal in every state that I decide to go to. I like the knife so much I bought both variants just to have the legal model in other states. If you want a great knife look no more.
