Features
  • Ambidextrous Thumb-Hole Opener

  • Country of Origin: USA
  • 154CM: An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
  • 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.

Excellent Knife
Has smooth action, just flick it with your thumb. Very comfortable in my large hands. Sheephoof blade is good for chopping and preparing vegetables. Good balance. Took with me to Ecuadorian jungle, handled very well. Great for the price.

Griptilian a Winner
I own at least one other Benchmade knife with Axxis lock. That locking system is the best I have seen in a folding knife (unless you want to spend big $$ on an automatic). What I wasn't so fond of with the earlier knife was the thumb-stud opening system. The Griptilian with Spyderco thumbhole and Benchmade Axxis lock gives you the best of both worlds without going to an automatic. On occasion I work in situations where easy, positive, single-handed opening is beneficial. This Griptilian meets and exceeds the need.

Fantastic Knife
This knife looks so good that I may even keep it as a keepsake. The use I have put it to so far shows that it functions just fine. I have a friend who is an expert on knives and he thought it was an excellent tool.
