Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel
Utilizes a wide variety of alloys but all contain a minimum of 10.5% Chromium content. Stainless steels will not corrode, rust, or oxidize but are not completely stain-proof so the title is somewhat of a misnomer.

Pros: Weight, Handle Feel, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Bigger and nastier than the Paraframe I
Even though there is just a little over a half inch difference in blade length between this knife and the Paraframe I, it feels different and performs well for larger tasks. It's not quite the convenient pocket size that it's younger brother is but it is still fairly light as far as knives of this blade size tend to run. If you have used a paraframe I and are looking for something a bit bigger to mess around with then definitely give this one a try. I picked one up used that had been seeing action for years and it has no blade play and locks up just fine. It has a classic paraframe blade which means it's easy to sharpen but doesn't hold an edge like a more expensive blade.

Great Knife for the money!!!
My son bought me this knife several years ago. I was really amazed at how durable it was. I carry it with me everywhere and it has come in very handy. I didn't realize how dependent I was on it until I would forget to slip in on my pocket and found myself reaching for it time after time throughout the day. The pocket clip makes it very easy to carry and access when needed. It comes very sharp and stays that way for a long time. I have purchased 3 or 4 of these knifes over the years since my son bought me the first one, not because they don't hold up but because I've got 2 grandsons now and they have borrowed my knife and they also seem to have a real knack for losing them. I'll keep buying this knife as long as they keep making it. It's just a d#mn fine knife.

Not One of the "Legendary Blades"
Before I say a few negative things about this knife, let me just say, I like it. I like it a lot. It fills your grip without leaving awkward space. The cons about this knife is that I have had to apply more maintenance to this thing than any other knife I own! The blade is the primary problem, as it often does not remain tight very long! The bolt the blade swivels on requires a special wrench available in the Benchmade Bluebox. The blade also gets rusty easily, so it needs to be looked at and attended to regularly. Bottom line is, for the price, it is a good knife, but if you want a lower maintenance knife, try something else!
