Benchmade AXIS Lock
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: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Good design, but poor fit finish.
I've had this knife for about 6 months. Was sharp out of the box. And holds edge fine. But the clip got loose very quickly and the handle material is cheap feeling and feels like it will slip (but hasn't). I like the size and heft. But when opened, while solid, it does have side to side movement that isn't fixed with tightening.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Excellent EDC
I've had this knife for several month and use it everyday for everything from opening envelopes to cutting steak. It's a perfect size and the opening / lock mechanism is superb. Mine had a small break in time, but after a couple of days it's as fast as an auto and a lot safer. The blade holds a very sharp edge and touch up has only been with a steel. I liked it so much I bought another as a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. Service from Knife Center was great.

Excellent EDC or weekend knife
Used for pretty much everything. Looks great, love the all black. Amazing, smooth and fast action.Came SHARP as you know what! Best when carried using the clip. A bit heavy in the pocket of used without the clip. All around, my favorite knife.
