Benchmade AXIS Lock
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.

Beautiful knife
This knife is terrific. It opens smoothly and very quickly and feels good in the hand. The blade is sharp and sufficiently long enough to be very useful. The lock mechanism is solid and you can keep your fingers out of the way when closing.

Great EDC
Holds a good edge, and fits nicely in your pocket with the clip. Not too big, not too small. I carry mine everyday. I have not used it to dress animals, but I'm sure you could use it for that purpose if you had to in a pinch.

Cons: None
Excellent for EDC
I bought this as an EDC to replace my ten year old Kershaw Blackout. Out of the box it was shaving sharp, but quickly lost its edge after I cut a few yards of burlap. The factory edge was fairly rough, so I guess that's why it dulled fairly quickly. It took only a minute on a Sharpmaker to get it back to shaving sharp again. The assisted opening feature is really nice, and I've had no problems with the knife opening when it shouldn't so the lock is unnecessary in my opinion. The pocket clip is nice and tight, and so far the knife has stayed put in my pocket. I haven't used the knife when my hands were wet, so I can't say whether or not the handle would be slippery. So far I have nothing but good things to say about this knife.
