BM698181: 698-181 Gold Class Foray
Benchmade
 
Producing high-quality, handcrafted products is a collaborative enterprise and one at which Benchmade excels. Featuring marbled carbon fiber, mother of pearl, custom anodized accents, diamond-like carbon (DLC) coated hardware and an exclusive Loki patterned Damasteel blade, this unique addition to the Gold Class line has all the qualities of a true art knife.

AXIS Lock

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.

Best Gold Class Yet
As title says, this is the best Gold Class Benchmade has made in recent history. With the carbon fiber, pearl inserts, and damasteel it's awesome. Wicked sharp and the one I got was perfect in every way. Beautiful and a work of art. Get one while you can. Not sure how I feel about the increase to $800, but when it was 680 it was worth it...
