This month, Benchmade Knife Company, manufacturer of premium sports cutlery for the last 26 years, announced a partnership with AmericanSnipers.org to assist in their support of American Law Enforcement and Military snipers.

AmericanSnipers.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of active and retired Law Enforcement and Military snipers who volunteer their time to raise equipment and monetary donations at firearms industry and military events/functions. All funds donated to AmericanSnipers.org go towards the procurement of requested supplies that will deploy with snipers to help them in their missions around the globe.

As part of this effort, Benchmade will release the special edition 551BKSN-AS Griptilian that will feature a black 154CM steel blade, sand handle scales and custom AmericanSnipers.org laser markings. Portions of the sales from this special edition Griptilian will go directly to the AmericanSnipers.org to aid them in their initiatives.

“AmericanSnipers.org is very grateful to have Benchmade approach us and want to work with us on a project like this.” says an official from AmericanSnipers.org. “Many of us on the cadre have carried and relied on Benchmade knives on and off duty for years, and we know the quality and reputation of the products. We are very excited about the program and know the supporters will get a great product with our legacy logo.”
