The CLA Composite Lite Auto was Benchmade's first automatic folder to feature a non-metallic handle and is still a benchmark in the all-purpose, mid-sized platform category. Featuring premium CPM-MagnaCut blade steel in the Battlewash finish and a host of small refinements to the handle, the 4300BK-02 CLA updates this ever-present automatic for a new generation.
