Surprisingly thin and so comfortable to hold. The mid-size Subrosa feels like it’s a part of you. There’s a high tech beauty to this exquisitely crafted titanium-handled knife. The slim, ergonomically satisfying monolock grip really sets it apart. But it’s Benchmade’s innovative Nitrous™ Assist mechanism that makes it so much more than a pretty blade. Unlike assisted openers with hairspring triggers, the powerful mechanism hidden inside this slim deceptive beauty give you full control…until you command it to spring into action. Start deploying the blade like you would any quality one-hand opening folder, moving the stud with your thumb to begin its rotation. It opens normally; with you in control of the speed, until it reaches a 30-degree angle—and you unleash the Torrent. Then hidden torsion arms take over to snap the blade into a fully open and locked position, ready to handle the most challenging tasks (or just peel an orange) until you move the mono lock aside to release it. The extremely strong clip-point blade holds is crafted from S30V—a sophisticated powder-metallurgy stainless developed specifically as a blade material for knives. This premium American made steel offers high strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and superb edge qualities. A single thumb stud opener works with the mono-lock system and a steel tip-up carry clip are set up for comfortable right-handed operation. Like all Benchmade Blue Class knives, the Subrosa™ was designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference that a high-quality cutting tool can make. These premium quality US-made products represent the heart of everything that is Benchmade. Choose Plain Edge or partially serrated ComboEdge®.


S30V:An American made premium grade stainless steel created especially as a blade material especially for knives. This sophisticated powder-metallurgy product has a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties. It offering excellent corrosion resistance and superb edge qualities. (58-60 HRC)

NITROUS™ Assist: A patented Benchmade exclusive, the Nitrous boosts the blade with ease and exceptional control. As the blade is closed the two torsion arms running the length of the handle liners are secured in place and tensioned against the blade tang. As, the user rotates the blade open to a 30-degree angle, the torsion arms take over and continue the blade opening process on its own. The huge advantage over other similar concepts is that the blade must be rotated open beyond a 30-degree angle, giving the user significantly more control.

MONOLOCK:Integrated into the Nitrous™ Assist mechanism, as shown above. The Monolock mechanism (left, above) is basically a locking-liner on steroids. The knife liner is one in the same as the knife handle, and thus it is designed and made to function as the locking mechanism. Subsequently, a thicker material is used to provide enough surface area to be a functional handle, and in turn creates a larger surface area to lock the blade with. If executed properly, the Monolock rates very highly in strength and function.

Benchmade Blue Class represents the heart of everything that is Benchmade. These USA-made products are designed and built for the individual who appreciates the difference that a high-quality cutting tool can make.
