    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromA beauty but it has issues Love the knife. Feels great in hand but within a day the blade refused to open all the way. Seems to be a problem with the spring. I am surprised that a Benchmade knife would fail so quickly and am hoping that this is just a fluke.

    by fromGreat balance of all things This is great medium weight knife. Benchmade sells a lot lighter, and there are a lot heavier knives. I wouldn't use this knife to live in the forest but I wouldn't go there without it. Its a great middle ground of weight and size. The assisted opening spring gives it a wonderful feel and if i buy another folder from Benchmade that would be on of the requirements for it to have. The pocket clip is sturdy as you can get with out doing something crazy. I bought the knife to use at my work in a commercial kitchen to open receiving shipments and blade will stand up to cardboard all day long. It has a good grip I just with there was some sort of rubberizing on the finger holds but anything they would put on would flake off so most likely that is for best.

    by fromOpens like a snap. I love this knife. It is very solid and well put together. The handle is made out of some sort of special plastic-like material. While I don't doubt the durability or functionality of this material, it isn't as beautiful as natural materials. That's the reason for four instead of five stars.

    by fromNIce I decided to expand my benchmade collection and landed on the Barrage. This knife lived up to benchmade's reputation. In all honesty its a little scary at first. The force with which the nitrous assist shot out the blade was intimidating at first but you learn to love it. This is a bigger knife and would be a little much for every day use but for hiking camping etc it seems to be the perfect knife.

    by fromEverything Ya Need Always go to a store to buy a knife, test it out. Heard that the spring has problems on these models. [...] Benchmade has a great warranty; lifetime. If you look at all the materials that were put in to create this knife.. you'll see its just made for any condition. 154CM is a great steel, strong, keeps its edge and is expensive. The grip. Made out of Valox plastic which is made of thermoplastic polyester resins are semi-crystalline... and is resistant to a variety of chemicals including aliphatic hydrocarbons, petrol, oils and greases, dilute acids and bases, detergents and most aqueous salt solutions. (did some research on the internet).Overall great knife. Cant say anything bad about it, look forward to taking it on my next camping trip, if this snow ever goes away.

    by fromFantastic Knife This knife is absolutely fantastic I have looked at may different benchmade knives and have come to the conclusion that this one would best fit my EDC (everyday carry) needs. After looking at some of the auto knives that benchmade makes the assist blade makes more sense for three main reasons, one its faster and easer to open than an auto knife, two its much safer to carry and open than an auto, and third you dont have to worry about all the [...] regulations that different citys place on auto knives. I hope this help some of you choose this great knife....

    by fromBeautiful EDC This is a great knife with a very solid feel. I own several Benchmade brand knives (fixed and folding) and this one upholds my existing expectations.

    by fromQuality Extremely well made knife. This is my second Benchmade and I was not at all surprised with the quality. The blade is made of exceptional quality steel and the handle is of equal quality. I have beaten the hell out of this knife and the paint on the pocket clip is the only visible sign of age. The blade stays sharp and is relatively easy to sharpen. The only downside, if it is a downside, is the fact that the Axis locking mechanism tends to collect dust and grime, but with a Q Tip, it's easy to clean. Overall, very satisfied with this knife. American made is the way to go. If you are buying a knife and want a quality larger sized folder that is durable as hell, buy the Barrage. And the reviewer whose locking mechanism failed to function correctly must've received a lemon, because there is no way a Benchmade would fail like that. Between REI and Benchmade, I'm confident that the issue was taken care of, as both companies have the best customer service available today. Buying a Benchmade from REI is one of the best decisions one could make.
