Benchmade Knife Company has recently debuted a new out the front auto-knife for 2022 with the 5370FE Shootout.

Benchmade Knife Company states “In a world where most out-the-front automatics are expensive and heavy, there is a demand for a lightweight and affordable OTF auto.
Enter the 5370FE Shootout™. This Black Class knife was designed with law enforcement and tactical personnel in mind.

It is the perfect weak-hand backup for anyone concerned with gross-motor deployment under stress.

The 5370FE™ Shootout handles are CF-Elite®, a carbon-fiber filled Nylon that increases rigidity and allows for reliable deployment.

The molded CF-Elite® has detailed texture that could not be milled into aluminum, Flat Earth PVD coated CPM-CruWear® blades, Carbide glass breaker and a reversible clip.

Made in the USA and stocked full of features and premium materials, the 5370FE Shootout™ packs a punch.”
