BM565: 565 Mini Freek | Benchmade Design
All the function of the full-size Freek is now available in a smaller more convenient size. Featuring the same dual durometer handles that afford strength, comfort, and positive grip combined with the original, fully ambidextrous Benchmade AXIS lock, this EDC is ready for whatever the day can throw at it.


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 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.

Excellent buy!
I don't like the name of this knife, it's pretty dumb and they should change it, Apart from that, this knife is quite nice. I've been wanting a company to come out with a knife with rubber or something of the like and finally someone has! Benchmade did a great job with the large version of this and this mini is just the right size. It's nice to see S30V blade steel going down in price. I venture to say that's because of the mass production of it now compared to a few years ago; along with the other high end premium steel being produced like CPM-20CV, CPM-S90V and CPM-S110V to name a few. The edge is wicked sharp! The versaflex handles are full of grip and FINALLY there's jimping on the spine of the knife. Blade centering is spot on, the lock up is great, the action is fair but will break in over time. The flat grind on this blade just fits the bill and it has plenty of belly too. I think the design of this blade proves that it can take some major abuse if necessary. Before I forget, the pocket clip nicely matches the handle and the retention is just right.
