BM531BK: 531BK AXIS | Pardue Design
The Benchmade Mel Pardue Axis is a great lightweight EDC, but with a Zytel handle it always seemed to be missing something. That something has been found in the 531 series, featuring G10 handles. It looks great, feels great, and functions great!

The ultimate lightweight carry now comes with G10 or molded handles. The Model 531 is based on the Mel Pardue designed Model 350. The basic looks are the same with the spear point blade and coffin style handle design but, the AXIS lock was incorporated for added performance function. The overall design was slimmed down for a low profile, low drag carry, and the weight is still incredibly light. So if you liked the Model 350, you’re going to love the Model 531.

High quality svelte & light
If you want a super lightweight thin pocket knife this is it. With the G10 handle it's a lot more desirable to the touch than the 530. The overall quality is top notch. I've had very high end microtech's, customs, etc. For a mere $144.00 this is a great buy. It's perfect for conceal carry with any kind of attire. It's so light and svelte you will not even be aware you are carrying it.

Ideal Gentleman's Tactical EDC
Benchmade gets the folding boot knife right! This model has actually been in the Benchmade line for a very long time (model 530), but with a double ground blade and a Grivory (high performance polyphthalamide) handle. The fact that it has been in the product line so long, testifies to the fact that a fair number of people recognized its qualities. My reaction to the 530 was, double ground dagger, that's not utility, partial liners in a plastic handle, that's not tactical...right or wrong on my part, Benchmade has taken the performance of this design to a whole new level with the full flat ground blade and G-10 handle. The thin 531 blade cuts like a razor, the lightweight construction makes it carry as if it weren't even there, and the G-10 handle provides ample strength if the knife were called on as a last ditch SD knife. It is the perfect lightweight gentleman's tactical EDC.
