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.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Blade Material, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, None
Benchmade quality at a reasonable price
If you are looking for a sub $100 that is still benchmade quality, this is a great option. No assisted open, but mechanism is still easy to operate. A really good value all around.

More bang for your buck.
The 522 Presidio Ultra AXIS is a rock solid heavy duty folder. It is made as a less expensive Presidio 525. I like it much better. It's smooth action is equal to high end AXIS folders. The 440C blade is wicked sharp out of the box and easy to maintain. It carries better then the aluminum 525 because it does not chew up the pocket nearly as much. It's made for hard use and is no light weight. At this price it's a steal. Hollow ground blade is a plus for me.
