  • AXIS® A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it's inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.

Cons: None
Benchmade Griptilian is a classy functional knife
Benchmade produces quality knives. Form - Fit - Function Weight - Grip - Strength of Blade - Ability to hold an edge The Griptilian is the right knife to carry - if you really want a knife (pocket folder). This knife is great for the cutting functions that I want to do - and convenient for those other functions that I don't necessarily want to do, but "need" to do, when others do not cooperate. It carries "comfortably," deploys quickly, and is very sure. It has a great grip, so that it does not become "lost" during use. This is a "grown up" knife. Teach the next generation well.

Cons: None
Great product, great price
My son-in-law lost his while helping me with a project, so I was getting him a replacement and was so impressed by reviews decided to get one for myself. I have never routinely carried a folding knife, but frankly, have begun to..lots of crime in the area, and carrying a pistol would scare the heck out of my patients, whether deserved or not! This is perfect. Incredibly sharp out of the box, but I won't carry with clip as it's too easy for my to pull out of pocket. KnifeCenter had the best price and service, and delivery was excellent.
