BM 53 Mangus. EDC Butterfly? September 22, 2011
Reviewer: brett colella from columbia, MO United States  
My review of the BM M53

1- The handles are very short, making any flipping technique beyond the basics difficult to do (although still possible)
2- No spring latch
3- Already visible wear on the handles where the latch locks closed

1- D2 Tool Steel. The blade has held up great. There are no chips, breaks, or excessive dulling in this blade
2- Comes RAZOR sharp out of the box. Just for kicks i decided to see if i could shave with it. mission accomplished
3- Benchmades life-sharp program
4- Ball bearing system for incredibly smooth action/rotation

Summary/Opinion - This is a great EDC in the form of a butterfly knife. If you want a butterfly knife strictly for flipping, go for the model 51 or 42. However, if you want a butterfly knife that can be used as an EDC/tool, take a beating, and perform the way a top tier knife should, then I have to recommend this Knife - 8/10
