a truly 'go to' knife for every day stuff. wicked sharp out of the box. been using the axis-assist on several Barrage knives for the last few years and when automatics became legal for civilians in Texas, well I had to get one. a hardy and hard core tool for operators and others alike. I think the Barrage knives open faster but this auto is heavier and only seems to lumber out of the gate. side by side opening really doesn't show much difference. if I was still in uniform I would definitely carry this piece of work with confidence. all in all, Benchmade knives are worth the money. you won't be sorry.
