The Mel Pardue designed 3550 is another great automatic knife from Benchmade. The 154-CM stainless steel spearpoint blade shape of this small auto offers enhanced tip qualities. Push-button automatic blade action snaps out fast. The black anodized 6061 T-6 machined aluminum handles are comfortable and thin. The sliding safety works without a hitch. Overall, the 3350 is a great choice for everyday carry.
