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.

Great EDC Knife
This is my first Benchmade and I'm loving it. The OD Green handle with the black blade finish is very nice looking. I got this knife because it's legal in 99% of the country (except for Chicago) and I recommend it to anyone. The AXIS lock is one of a kind and I see now why so many people like it. It's almost addictive how much I mess with the locking mechanism. I usually use it for just box and package opening but from what I've seen it would have no issue with hard use. Again, great knife and well worth the money.
