  • 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.

Extremely good knife for the money!
First off, this knife opens like no other! The THWACK sound it makes as the blade contacts the stop pin and axis lock engages is quite intimidating.....which is good. The blade came razor-sharp, as all Benchmades do, and the satin finish is flawless. Have owned this knife for about a year, and have carried it for at least 6 months of that year. It has taken much abuse and handled it with no problem. Still has perfect lockup with no horizontal or vertical play. The only cons I can come up with regarding this blade are: 1. The handle material lacks grippiness. Not that its slick, but its not exactly traction-friendly either. 2. The assist, as mentioned, is crazy-strong. This would normally be a plus, however, from a one-handed operation standpoint, it makes closing the blade complex and fairly dangerous. I have another BM knife that's assisted and is very easy to close single-handed. These 2 cons are simply me being picky. I would recommend this blade to anyone!!

Really good knife
I bought this knife from knifecenter.com because here it's around 150$. And i love it! It came "Benchmade sharp", I could shave with it right out of the box. Opens real nice and fast. I even removes spring for assisted opening and still no problems. Axis lock secures the blade great. Oh, and a tip broke off, but it was my fault for using it as a screwdriver :/ All in all, great knife, definitley worth buying.

where's the beef?
Not my first Benchmade, carried that one for years, but I've had this one almost a year and it's proven itself to be reliable as hell after being opened several million times and it holds a shaving edge as any piece of fine cutlery would. True one-handed deployment. I have a one arm friend who's interested in one. I use it mainly to eat bbq but if something needs cutting in a hurry, the Barrage is quick. I recommend this easy carry tool to anybody who wants an assisted opener. I might get another with a tanto blade and give it to me for my birthday.
