Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
1st use. Light use carving wood tip broke off, impacted 1/4 inch from my eye. Bench made reputation in my book is gone. I've never had a 10 dollar knife break, but this 100 dollar knife almost took my eye.

First and Last
(This review is in no way shape or form about Knife Center) I never had a Benchmade before but always heard only good about them. So I thought I would go for this one. (522 Presidio Ultra AXIS Lock 3.47" Satin Plain Blade) Got the knife, pull it out of the box and was like...really. I've never been so disappointed in a knife purchase quite like this. The feel of the knife was very very cheap. The blade play was AWFUL! The blade was way off center it made my eyes cross. So I started playing with it...you know, opening and closing it. After about and hour and a half...IT BROKE!!! I have a $8 Buck knife that I got from Walmart 20 years ago...held together by way of rivet that has seen some hard times. So when this happened I said to myself "my bad" and just through in the garbage...that's all it ever was anyways. Sorry Benchmade but from a machinist of 19 years...first impressions are key in my world.

Cons:
Blade broke carving plastic...
I bought this knife and in the first oportunity to use this the tip of the blade broke, when I was carving a piece of plastic!. I sent two messages to Benchmade and was completely ignored. I do not recomend it.
