  • 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.

New Benchmade folder
I am currently using this knife for everyday carry. It has exceeded my expectations in every way. The assisted opening is very positive. The knife is beautifully finished. I own dozens of knives, but this is truly one of my favorites.

Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material, None
I don't care if the handle is slippery
Fare warning: If you use this knife while your hands are wet, you might lose a finger. I honestly love this knife, it wasn't all that expensive and after playing with it for a while it was pretty easy to figure out. I joke about losing a finger cause the damn thing is so sharp and the handle is so slippery. I use this knife for edc: opening boxes, cuting tape or plastic, etc. Again it is a great value, but be careful and conscious of liquid on your hands! Also there is no "side to side action" while the blade is open, it's tight like a drum.
