Cons: Weight, Handle Feel
Benchmade 950-1
This is a good looking piece and is in my rotation of EDC knives. The 154CM blade was wicked sharp right out of the box It feels very sturdy, though it is a little on the heavy side. With the G10 handle scales, you are not going to lose your grip. I do feel the scales edges could use a little bit of radius The Axis Lock Is great. Though similar to Spyderco Manix 2 Ball Bearing Lock operation, the Rift is smoother and can be manipulated with one finger. It's easy to just fidget, opening and closing, sometimes to the annoyance of your neighbors or in my case my wife. If you are looking for a good EDC knife definitely look at this one.

Osborne Rift Axis review
After the purchase of my Griptilion, I needed another knife for work that required a knife to be left on location. I've really enjoyed the Griptilion and this knife has filled the bill with flying colors. A bit larger but fits the sheath I purchased for the earlier knife. Same great steel and functionality. I'm very happy with the Rift. My only suggestion is for Benchmade to supply the proper size Torx tool to move or remove the clip. I don't use the clip with the knife and the tiny Torx isn't available at any of the hardware stores convenient to me. When it is available, one has to buy a set which duplicates the larger sizes that I already own.

Cons: Pocket Clip
Good Effort, But...
What a great knife! Great quality blade, scales, lock, materials. Too bad the designer wimped out and went with tip-up only carry, making it completely useless to me. I know some like tip-up, and it is way easier to make a tip-up carry knife (after all there's no pivot, lock, opening mechanism, etc. in the way). But 4+ decades of everyday use has taught me that tip-up is prone to fumbling, and even danger. Carry it in a pocket, without the clip and it'll be fine. I sure wish that these designs had thought of ALL potential users, instead of taking the easy way out.
