Benchmade mini Presidio Ultra in BLUE
This image is respectfully borrowed from Roger, and his team @ Knifeworks.com
I have been EDC-ing my original plain edge mini Presidio Ultra for many months now. The size and light weight have made it my go-to knife. I've usually got an additional folder on person, but I LOVE the feel and fit of the Presidio Ultra. IMO, it's one of the best American made folders you can get for under $75 USD. This new blue edition, looks to be a limited edition for some sort of team. I can't make out the word before team though, and knifeworks offers no additional info! If you can tell me what the "USA" logo represents, and what team this was created for, please fill me in! Does it say "USA 'Shooting Team'? It goes without saying, that as I've been wanting to pick up a 2nd Presidio Ultra, this handsome blue one is likely gonna be my #1 choice.
Knifeworks is offering both plain and combo edge versions, both blackened, for under $70 USD, before shipping.
I have purchased from many online retailers, and I can say without hesitation, that on in-stock orders, knifeworks offers the fastest processing and shipping of any web retailer I have done business with. I'm gonna go check my credit card balance, and if things look good, this bad blue boy will be in my hands by the end of the year.
Yes, it is a partnership with the USA "Shooting" team, as in Olympic shooting team. I must have missed it the first time around on BM's site. More details from BENCHMADE.
