Benchmade Azeria-A Purpose Built Knife
I like everything about this knife. It came 1 day after ordering it which really surprised me. It is super and seriously sharp from the box. The holster is well designed for its intended purpose. The clip is made very strong-the way it should be. It is designed to be carried on a duty or utility belt and that is where it will go--as a police officer, I will carry it as a back-up weapon. It will be installed to the left of the ammo pouch with the knife handle laying directly behind the ammo pouch flaps. It will be very hard to see-one would have to look very closely. The holster can be reversed and has holes to tie the holster in, if need be.It is definitely a purpose built piece of emergency equipment--last ditch self-defense during a gun grab.I have small to medium hands so it fits perfectly for me. Well done Benchmade and to the Knife Center: Great Service! PS: I am surprised Benchmade constructed the blade with what they did BUT, because of its location, it might come into contact with sweat so the blade metal has to be rust-free...again good job.
