  • 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.

Benchmade Barrage Axis assisted 3.6 combo
The knife was razor sharp out of the box. A very nice velvet pouch comes with it. This is very nice for storage when not in use. I love the secure lock position, on top near the jibbing, which prevents opening. This is an asset to easily unlock the assist opening. I find it can be carried securely even when the lock is dis-engaged. The knife blade- combo edge, is one of my favorite types. I use it around home and in field. the serrated portion is a fav for cutting rope quickly. While the plain edge portion is great for many other tasks, to endless to count. The 154CM black coated Is perfect hardness 58-61. Great edge retention and sharpening the blade is quick enough. The assist opening is lighting quick. locks in place and feels solid,secure. the handle provide excellent grip in a lightweight solid feeling material. As left handed person having the clip mounted for my preferred carry is great. It sits well in my pocket. Benchmade knives are among my most favorite for quality and overall function. You can depend on this knife to always function well. I cannot say enough good for this knife. highly recommended for reliability, durability function sharpness. a very versatile knife worth every penny!!! Did I mention it is offered at a great price!!!

A Real Joy to Own
I keep this knife on my person at all times. It's always handy, as I never know when I'm going to need it. What's great is the feel, balance, and solid heft. The blade is super sharp, and flips open with the flick of my thumb. The locking feature is great if you want absolute security. It has a slide button on top that locks the blade closed. When this is in the open position, of course the blade can be opened. The knife can be set up for left or right handed use. The clip can moved from one side to the other. The knifes ready for right handed use, and comes with a user manual that explains how to change the clip from one side to the other. Three little screws hold the clip on, and very securely. The handle feel good, looks good. Just holding this knife inspires confidence in its ability to get the job the done. I had lost one of these, and bought this done from Knife Center as a replacement. I'm glad I did. Great price, great service. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase experience, rapid shipment, and ultimately a terrific product. There is no sheath for this knife, nor should there be. There is a cloth draw string bag that the knife comes in, in a blue foam padded box. Attention to detail is obvious.

Best knife I've ever owned
This knife is amazing! The blade came sharp enough to shave with, right out of the box and has yet to dull. The steel used is far supieor to that used by Cold Steel and Sog. The handle feels very durable and open assist is what you'd expect from Benchmade. The only thing I am concerned about is the lock. It does seem cheap, but so far it has not given me any trouble. I highly recomend this knife to anyone willing to spend a little extra to get something that will last forever.
