BM530P: 530 Pardue AXIS Spear Point Folder
The Model 530 is based on the Mel Pardue designed Model 350. The basic looks are the same with the spear point blade and coffin style handle design but, the AXIS lock was incorporated for added performance function. The overall design was slimmed down for a low profile, low drag carry, and the weight is still incredibly light. So if you liked the Model 350, you’re going to love the Model 530.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
Useful ultralight
Strikingly thin and light, but every bit a good Benchmade knife. In simple terms that means a well built, extremely sharp knife. Blade profile and quality is great, thin, flat, razor sharp. I bought this because of its overall (handle) thickness and use it as a backup knife usually worn in a waistband, but it would work well in a pocket. The clip is a little small and tight to be used in a boot. The odd part of this knife for me is the location of the clip, being mounted at the other end of the handle from knives that don't have the AXIS locking system. I'm not comfortable using this system yet, but that is only a matter of time. For my hand size, I would have like the handle to be about 3/4" longer. Bottom line -It has a few things I"m not crazy about but if I lose it, I will buy another.

Cons: None
Love this knife
Only 2 ounces. Lightweight and comortable to carry with a 3.25" blade and good steel (154cm). Like the handle and grip and balance. Great general use knife in my opinion. The knife was sharp out of the box, but I like super sharp so I lowered the angle a little and finished with a very fine ceramic stone. Also loosened the pivot screw slightly, making sure I did not create any side play in the blade. The thumb stud is small to make the knife streamlined so it is not as easy to open as some other knives, but still is fairly easy to open one-handed. If the thumb stud was bigger it would not fit the knife's slim profile.
