AXIS Lock (Benchmade)
The AXIS Lock—the original Crossbar Lock. It originated from knifemakers Bill McHenry and Jason Williams, who sold it to Benchmade. Benchmade named it the AXIS Lock and popularized it on models like the Griptilian and the Bugout. Now, it's one of the most popular lock systems because of its strengths and accessibility.
