my first Benchmade
I'm not a hunter and only use my knives for regular EDC tasks. Cutting stuff, eating etc... I find myself fidgeting with the opening system. I really like the size of this knife and its style which is a balance between traditional and modern. I love the shape of the blade.The axis locking system is very smooth especially after a drop of oil on the pivot. The only 2 things somewhat negative I'll have to say about this knife are: - its price is a little too high (compared to other knives I would put it in the $160 range). - the blade wasn't centered (and I'm still trying to figure out how to center it).
