  • Ambidextrous Thumb-Hole Opener
  • Lightweight Molded Handle
  • Hollowground Blade
  • 440C: A high-chromium stainless steel with a terrific balance of good hardness and corrosion resistance. 440C takes a nice edge and is fairly easy to resharpen. An excellent value priced steel for its performance. 
  • AXIS® A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it's inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Pros: Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Adequate trainer
I carry a Benchmade knife day to day and wanted a training version to go along with it. This one fills the bill. Size and heft are the same as the real version thus allowing you to get the feel of the real thing while doing defensive drills. Regardless of the knife you chose to carry, I would strongly recommend finding one that has a training version such as this one to allow safe practice.
