From Applied Weapons Tech: "Archon" means "Ruler" in Greek and our new Archon series Bugout rules them all. With this series we combined our unique understanding of scale manufacturing along with customer feedback to make what we feel is the perfect scale. The contoured surface vastly improves ergonomics from previous iterations, while making it easier to access the AXIS lock. The scalloped pattern makes for an incredible grip while the redesigned profile eliminates any and all hot-spots. The ambidextrous clip holes allow for both right or left hand tip-up carry. These scales will fit either the Grivory, aluminum, or G-10 Bugout. The Archon truly leaves nothing to be desired.
As with everything else at AWT, these scales are machined from 6061 aluminum to incredible standards. Once machined, they get tumbled, cleaned, blasted, and Cerakoted to one of many colors. Please keep in mind that Cerakote is a ceramic paint, albeit tough, isn't indestructible. This coating will wear over time on hard edges and will develop a nice distressed/worn look over time.
Please Note: Benchmade's Warranty does not cover disassembly of any knife by any person other than Benchmade's Warranty department.
