Benchmade Introduces Compact and Lightweight Mini Coalition

Benchmade just rolled out another new automatic, the 9750 Mini Coalition. The compact, lightweight blade joins the recently-revealed Rukus II in Benchmade’s Black Class of knives.

The Mini Coalition will be the smallest and lightest auto in the current Benchmade lineup. The knife’s S30V drop point blade measures just 2.87 inches. Modest dimensions and an aluminum frame keep the weight well under the three-ounce mark, and it enters the ring at a reported 2.63 ounces.

A single action auto, the Mini Coalition utilizes a button to fire. Like the Rukus II and Presidio II, it incorporates a safety toggle on its spine. A black G-10 inlay helps to keep a secure grip on the Mini Coalition during deployment and use. Benchmade chose their deep carry pocket clip to emphasize the convenient carry of a knife this small.

The Mini Coalition is the fourth new for 2017 Benchmade model announced outside of the conventional SHOT Show reveal cycle. Whether this means we’ll see fewer new Benchmades at SHOT Show in January and a steady stream of releases throughout 2018, remains to be seen.

The knife will come in a satin finish, plain edge model, or a black coated version in plain or partially serrated edges. MSRP for the basic satin model is pegged at $235. Either coated model will command an MSRP of $250. The Mini Coalition will start shipping out to dealers on September the 4th.
