CPM-S30V Stainless Steel

A premium steel created especially for knives, it is a powder steel creating uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties. As a blade material, it offers excellent corrosion resistance and superb edge qualities. This stainless steel is extremely well balanced, making it one of the best all-around choices for daily tasks.

AXIS Lock

A Benchmade original, 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 that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is 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 its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Another Griptilian Lover
I started with the mini Grip in the new steel thinkinking the regular was too big for my office based EDC use. Then when I decided to give it a shot I almost went for the g10 handled version but the steel upgrade just isn’t worth the uptick. I once I started caring this full sized grip, I love it. Came great from the factory with good blade centering and action opening and closing. Easy to gravity flip. Longer blade comes in handy for cutting open boxes and such and provides comfortable grip and some tactile advantage. Still pretty light for the length and shape of the blade.
