Awesome edc
Joshua B.
Awesome edc, it's a little chunky but it is so light weight and feels amazing in the hand and when it needs to be sharpened the steel takes a nice edge

The only problem is the gimping it is more for looks than anything else.

Other than that the knife is amazing!!! Also the box the knife comes in is awesome it's like an iPhone box. And Benchmade's warranty is probably one of the best warrantys ever!
You want this knife

I don't know if there is a such thing as perfect but this knife comes closer than anything I have ever carried. It's got good reach but its not to heavy. Its made with good steel but its not so premium that you have to spend an extra hundred dollars for it. It came sharp and took an edge easier than any other knife I have ever sharpened. The lock makes it easy to deploy and close with one hand. If you can only own one pocket knife this is it.
A definite must have knife

This is by far one of my go to knives. The Axis lock and weight are exceptional. The pocket clip is excellent. This blade can do almost anything. I have many Benchmade knives but I keep going back to this one because of its all around perfection. The fit and finish is astonishing. The knife isn't small but the weight is amazing. Razor sharp and extremely tough. I've carried this knife for years and it's never ever let me down. Oh's made in America. What's not to love?
