  • AXIS® 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 which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and 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 it's inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Instantly became my favorite knife
I had read good reviews about this knife...all true. Out of the box, sharpest knife I own and instantly has become my EDC. I like my many other knives, but the now live in the dresser drawer or garage. I can't say enough good things about the Griptilian. I'm a believer and now loyal customer to Benchmade.

Great edc
This knife is a must if you are into knives. The sheep's foot blade and hole are awesome. Very sharp. The action is smooth and lock up is tight. Axis lock is now my favorite locking system. Hate the scales though. Very cheap plastic feeling. Had to order some aluminum scales from applied weapons technologies. So a 100 dollar knife just turned into a 180 dollar knife just to make it feel like what its worth. Other than that I love this knife. When the new scales get in it will be a truly perfect EDC. Highly recommend.
