What a Knife !!
I hate to say this, but when I took the knife out of the box I wasn't overly impressed. However... it didn't take long to see why this is such a popular Benchmade knife. I immediately put it into the EDC rotation and it quickly became my "go-to" carry. I could easily repeat all the positive traits of this knife (that have been expressed many time before). So I will... at least just a few... the axis lock system - yikes is it nice ! It took a little while for me to get used to it. But after a very short time I was wishing more of my knives had this lock system. So Nice !! The blade steel... S30V !! When I first handled the knife, I thought the G10 handles were going to be to slick... boy was I wrong. They are smooth... but just the right amount of "smooth". Feels great and the more you handle it the more confident you feel about it. So bottom line... Great Knife... So glad I bought it !
