    BM posted this week in FB that a new lightweight knife was going to debut on 7/26.
    Over on the BM forums they are thinking a 530/531 variation, maybe longer.
    Funny I just lost my beloved 531. I will see what next week brings. If it is a bigger 53X with higher end steel.......

    It looks like a Barrage/Volli to me. A thinner Barage is something I would consider carrying. It's the only reason that keeps my 581 out of my pocket.

    Now I'm curious! :D

    It's a picture that Benchmade posted on their Facebook page. I thought it was a thinner griptilian at first, then I remembered that the g-10 already has nested liners. The blade also isn't ramped or gimped like the Griptilian. It's probably the new 53x. I can see some vague similarities to a 531 and a Volli, but it's really hard to tell from that picture.

    It's one of our previous employees that left to do some hardcore backpacking.

    Look at that lanyard hole in the back of the blade. Probably just projecting my preference but come onnnnn mini Crooked River!! :D

    Also, thanks for posting the picture.

    I posted the same thing over on the Benchmade forum, but I could see that one becoming my "only" knife. It checks a lot of boxes for me.

    I think the admins on the BM forum deleted the post.

    I think so too, I'm sure they weren't too happy about their unveil being spoiled.
