Benchmade Barrage™ AXIS-Assisted 3.6" Satin Finish Plain Edge Blade
Very sharp blade. I like the ability to mount the clip in the point up position for either left or right handed use. Blade assisted deployment is solid and fast. I have a Kershaw Blur and although I like it as well, the Benchmade seems a bit faster and seems to open with more force. I like it so much I'm considering purchasing another just to have it on hand. Definitely a solid knife that can handle some heavy work. Made in the USA Benchmade knives are worth every penny.
