I only have one of my Benchmades on me. Under the butterfly is the model number. On the other side of the blade is a number that represents the type of steel used for the blade, e.g. 154CM. Under that, it says Mel Pardue Design. ;)

A higher "steel number" does not necessarily represent better quality steel.

Moreover, "better" is a relative term. Different types of steel are more suited for different uses.

Some are also patent numbers. Most model numbers are 3 digits with nothing else next to them except for an occasional model name.

If you're referring to this:


then it's the model number of the knife (model 555 mini-Griptillian)
