Flytanium is know for bringing you the best aftermarket parts for your Benchmade 51. After each successful launch of our titanium V series scales, we decided to offer a trainer blade to spare your hands a few cuts and your knife, more blood! Like all our products, the Zenith Trainer Blade works seamlessly with your 51.
The Zenith Trainer Blade features a unique, symmetrical spear point blade. Instead of the usual hole cutouts found on other trainers, we went with a unique skeletonize center. Since we are a huge fan of bushing driven pivots, we decided to add this component to the Zenith Trainer. You will notice the pivot holes are larger to accommodate for the bushings. This allows for a smooth action while eliminating some of the play associated with balisongs. The Zenith is made from durable 440c steel, given a stonewash finish and sports the Flytanium DeadFly logo. The stock 51 blade weighs about 0.98 oz while the Zenith Trainer Blade weighs about 0.94 oz.

*Installation of the trainer requires some basic tools and knowledge. You will need a T8 torx bit to remove the pivots. The pivots are pressure set and require some force to remove and install. A mallet/hammer is necessary. The pivots require FORCE to install flush in the scales, this is on purpose so they do not spin freely. There are some good informational videos on YouTube if you need more instructions or email us.
Disclaimer: There are many small parts and pieces on the 51. Disassemble at your own risk.
*Please Note: Benchmade's Warranty does not cover disassembly of any knife by any person other than Benchmade’s Warranty department.
