A tactical knife doesn’t always need to be overbuilt to serve its purpose. Taking the best from some of our favorite legacy designs, the new 8551BK Mediator is Benchmade’s latest push-button automatic. With milled chevron-pattern G10 handles and a CPM-S90V reverse tanto blade, the Mediator™ is a sleek switchblade with lightning-fast action.

Purchased this item as a Birthday gift to myself. Knifeworks was incredible to deal with. Definitely just bought 3 more knives from them. :-)
As for the knife it's almost the size of a Bug Out with the added value of S90V steel and it's an auto. Very well built and feels like it can handle some abuse.
Benchmade stuck this one out of the park. It's the perfect balance of tactical and edc application.
