Description
BM300SN: 300SN AXIS Flipper
Benchmade

Benchmade offers this model as their first issue of a flipper knife. Combined with the Axis lock, this makes for a great pocketknife. The flipper allows for immediate and lightning fast opening action. The Axis locking system is super strong and also allows for easy, one handed unlocking and closing. The actions of flicking your wrist with your finger on the flipper or the lock to open and close this knife will soon feel perfectly natural and you will wonder how you ever had a different system. The textured G10 handles are also great on these and give good grip in all conditions as well as a nice look! The blade shape is nice on these with a nice "belly" on the flat ground blade. The "belly" means it has a lot of curve and this really allows you to use all parts of the edge while other blade shapes may encourage you to use a particular area of the cutting edge. The pocket clip is reversible and is made for deep pocket carry with the tip up. We really like this model and feel that it will serve you well as an every day carry knife for just about any task you set in front of it.

BM 300SN Axis Flipper
This was my first Benchmade knife that I ever purchased. Before purchasing I read through all the reviews of several different BM knives. Normally I am very cautious with money and was very hesitant to spend $150 plus on a knife. I went ahead and decided to order it, expecting a pretty decent knife. My expectations weren't only met, they were surpassed on every spectrum! Just by picking up the knife out of the box, I knew that this was a quality item. They G10 scales are very grippy, not rough, but just right (and the design looks fantastic, just like the pictures!). I also have very large hands (For reference I wear a size 13 ring) . My bulky, potato like fingers fit perfectly inbetween the figer grooves in the handle and I can still get my pinky wrapped around the bottom. The blade came razor sharp out of the box. As I have bought several different kinds of knives from knife center, I feel that 'razor sharp' is used quite liberally, but this knife means business. It can cut through paper, cardboard, and small braches like they are warm butter. The knife is very easy to open. Mine flipped open with ease, even right out of the box. The release is also very easy to use. I appreaciate this feature because I can easily close the knife one handed, even with just two fingers. Personally I prefer to carry tip down. Out of factory it came tip up. I have no reason to worry how ever that the blade will release and accidentally cut me, and should I ever change my mind, the clip can be adjusted.

Great EDC knife
I have the 300-1 and this model, I like both equally, the flipper is odd to use at first if your use to the "normal" made flipper, as the detent is not as secure as most flippers, not that the blade opens unexpectedly, but once you change your deployment style slightly and get the muscle memory down it becomes second nature quickly. I have chubby medium size hands and fits me like a glove (most finger grooved handles do not) for reference I can almost get 4 finger grip on mini griptilian. These models have earned a spot in my EDC rotation for sure, like them enough to buy multiples as they will be discontinued one day I'm sure. Mine all have perfect blade centering, very sharp edges, symmetrical grinds, perfect fit and finish, smooth as glass pivots with NO blade play, locks are tight as a drum on all. I myself do not feel they are too bulky or heavy, little more then some of same size but considering the beefy build (blade stock thick for normal Benchmade models of same size) I think it's more then acceptable. The blade shape is a great utilitarian blade with good belly and high flat grind. My only hesitation to recommend is the handle size, as I would suggest holding one before buying if possible as this design does not allow a great grip with many different hand sizes I my opinion, other than that....excellent knife.
