BM300SN: 300SN AXIS Flipper

Benchmade offers this model as their first issue of a flipper knife. Combined with the Axis lock, this makes for a great pocketknife. The flipper allows for immediate and lightning fast opening action. The Axis locking system is super strong and also allows for easy, one handed unlocking and closing. The actions of flicking your wrist with your finger on the flipper or the lock to open and close this knife will soon feel perfectly natural and you will wonder how you ever had a different system. The textured G10 handles are also great on these and give good grip in all conditions as well as a nice look! The blade shape is nice on these with a nice "belly" on the flat ground blade. The "belly" means it has a lot of curve and this really allows you to use all parts of the edge while other blade shapes may encourage you to use a particular area of the cutting edge. The pocket clip is reversible and is made for deep pocket carry with the tip up. We really like this model and feel that it will serve you well as an every day carry knife for just about any task you set in front of it.

Cons: Weight, None
Smooth as silk
This knife is an every day carry for me. I am pleased at the placement of the clip, since it allows the knife to sit well inside the pocket of my jeans. But, more than that, this knife has a solid feel to it. The grip is excellent with the textured handle. It's not assisted opening. But the balance of the blade and smooth opening mechanism provides the blade to be almost instantly available with just a pull on the flipper and a slight flip of the wrist. I also like the blade release. It's smooth, and the blade easily closes. Out of the box, this blade shaved off the few hairs left on my arm (few, since I test my knives this way...) I mainly use it around my property opening feed bags, cutting ropes, and showing it off for my grand-kids. I've only had it a few days, but I feel certain that this is going to be one of my all-time favorite knives.

Benchmade 300SN AXIS Flipper Folding Knife 3.05" Perfecto
I use the 300 as my daily carry all purpose. The blade is stonewashed with a drop point tip, overall really thick and sturdy knife. Very easy to flip and fold. The blade has a great ability to not close on your finger because of the flipper part of the blade. Fits in hand perfectly; would be hard to pull it out of hand with the G10 handle. Very Grippy. Comes with a really sharp edge out of the box.

Benchmade has redeemed themselves in my eyes!
After a very disappointing experience 2 years ago with a 1st Production version of Benchmade's mean-looking (& expensive) Bedlam manual folding knife, my faith is restored! I've been collecting Benchmades for 20 years & I've rarely (once or twice) received a less-than-perfect knife. My unsatisfactory-factory-edge & defective pivot screw experience with the aforementioned Bedlam soured me on Benchmade for the last 2 or so years (I'm picky). I'm happy to report that my 300 Ball Axis flipper is flawless in execution. Factory edge was as sharp & wicked as they come. This knife is a handsome addition to my EDC rotation. The Axis opening/locking is smooth, quick & flawless, & after a bit of getting used to, the flipper works well. (Many "flipper" folders are framelock/linerlocks will a ball-bearing & detent that allow for a bit more of a snappy tension-push when opening.) I'm stoked also that Benchmade is only using offshore manufacture in some of the knife lines they produce for other brands. If it says Benchmade, it's still USA made, as it should be. This knife is a very solid piece, & it's actually priced very fairly. 154CM bladesteel is always reliable, & while still "tactical", the 300 is a bit less menacing than the Zero Tolerance knives I've been carrying. The 300's fit and finish is also well-done, clean & professional is the way Benchmade likes to do it. Good Stuff.
