The 430BK Redoubt is your partner for the real work.
We challenged our designers to develop a general-purpose, hard-use utility knife with NBD (never been done) features. Introducing the 430BK Redoubt, a hard-working, full-sized folding knife that performs with ease in the workshop or the field – a tactical utility EDC with a sure grip for heavy cutting chores.
Out of sight but never out of mind. When your workload requires a serious hard-use cutting tool, reach into your pocket and grab the new 430BK or 430SBK Redoubt.
The new 430BK Redoubt will come in two trims, each with the same general specifications except for one major difference – the choice for blade serrations. The 430BK Redoubt will feature a smooth drop-point blade style while the 430SBK will feature a serrated drop-point blade with the serrations appearing to start right around two inches from the tip of the blade. The 430BK comes standard with a Cobalt Black finish, reversible tip-up deep carry clip, Grivory thermoplastic handle panels, and a lanyard hole. The knife weighs in at 3.7 ounces, has a blade length of 3.55 inches, and an overall length of 8.29 inches when opened. Both the 430SBK and 430BK Redbout full-size folding knives will retail for $180 from the Benchmade online store.
