Description
BM737: 737 Aileron
Benchmade
 
It may not be TSA approved but the aptly named 737 Aileron is meant for the high skies. Rapid deployment and control are the key factors in the Aileron, the first collaboration with Steve Tarani from Benchmade. 

Designed for the Aviation Industry with input and review from pilots and Federal Flight Deck Officers, the 737 features innovative laser texturing on the blade which provides extra traction and facilitates Tarani’s two-handed opening method in which he instructs his martial arts students. The knife can also be opened with the blade cutout, or by using the Axis Lock to flip the blade out.

Machined G10 handles taper toward the back, and is designed to provide a positive grip for all hand sizes. The truly ambidextrous Axis Lock (along with reversible pocket clip) allow anyone to use the Aileron safely, as the knife can be opened and closed one-handed, without your fingers crossing the path of the blade.

The finishing touch on the Aileron is S30V steel, providing exceptional edge retention and stain resistance. Designed for rough environments, the Aileron is a unique tactical and utilitarian folder ideal for air or ground use.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip
Surprisingly Good Knife
Pros:Excellent handle, honestly one of the most comfortable folding knives that I've used in the last 10 years. Getting a firm grip is easy in almost every possible position, and for the life of me I can't find a single hotspot to complain about. The G10 scales have been done almost perfectly and hit that sweet spot between comfort and tractability. Good blade, the blade geometry here is quite well done. I have generally used the knife for cutting up packages and cardboard thus far, but have yet to encounter any problems while using the knife. The rough grip material on the back of the blade does catch sometimes on very loose/light material, but this really hasn't been any issue while using the knife to slice up boxes or letters. It may be an issue for those who wish to use it for food prep, your mileage may vary on that. One good thing about the grip material, it actually makes it a lot easier to open the knife when you're wearing gloves and/or in cold weather. Under those conditions using the axis lock is a lot harder than simply gripping the back lock, so this inclusion is quite appreciated in the freezing winter winds!Cons:The pocket clip, it's not terrible. The clip does function well enough and I don't feel like it's going to come flying out of my pocket at the slightest provocation. But, it also doesn't feel as secure as other Benchmade deep carry clips that I have owned in the past. Overall, I just don't feel like the clip really adds much value to the knife itself. The advertising. Just, god. I swear, the advertising for this thing... Look I know the ads have probably put a lot of people off the idea of purchasing this knife, heck, it nearly prevented me from purchasing this thing myself. However, if you are able to look past the 'mall-ninja-on-crack' advertising strategy BM chose to go with you will find that this is actually a solid knife with quite a lot of utility for someone working in a warehouse or other manual labor environment. I have used this thing on the job and it does work quite well. So, just try and focus on the knife itself, it's worth it.
