  • 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.

This knife is good, but the handle is bad.
Open speed speed like lightning. Material of the blade is good. Lock system is also great. Handle slippery.

BEST knife that I have purchased from Knife Center. the others were good the Benchmade is worth every penny and then some. Ease of operating the thumb safety the locking system that beats a liner lock any time. Made in America quality that makes knives from other countries second class. There are no bad things to say about this knife. This knife will be around to pass down to my grandson.

Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material, None
Superb fit and finish
This is a great option for an EDC gentlemans folder. I would not consider this a viable option for self defense because of the valox handles and their slippery texture, as well as the lack of gimping. The fit and finish on this knife is benchmade standard and the blade came razor sharp. I gave this knife a 4 star review because of the valox. If this knife had grippy micarta or g10 handle material it would be a 5 star knife.
