Very happy with my Mini Freek. I'd like to dispel the myth about the versaflex scales making it hard to pocket or withdraw the knife. The material is like a hard rubber and does not grip my pocket fabrics. I suppose if you are wearing silk pajamas you might find it grippy, or in a very hot environment where the material might get tackier (I'm in the temperate Pacific Northwet).

It took a lot of knife pivot lube to get the action smooth, the pivot drank the stuff up. But, now the blade flicks open effortlessly, and if I hold the knife a bit above horizontal, when I disengage the axis lock the blade fall freely all the way back into the frame. It's the most fidget friendly knife I own.

Finally, those complaining about the short liners never complain about the resulting light weight. More importantly, they never attribute a disadvantage to the short liners.

the knife is pretty ok in my opinion the liners are not quite full length, the action on my freek was way to tight and after a couple weeks of carry is still rough and tight.

The mini freek is a home run from an edc standpoint. Very light, very grippy, and S30v is still a great steel. The one I got was buttery smooth and fall shut out of box. So far it's been a great blade

As good as the 560 Freek but better for smaller hands and easier carry.
Not a keeper...

Short Steel liners. Just barely enough to hold the AXIS Lock system and supported by 1 tiny screw in each handle scale. Handle scales that absolutely suck on top of that!!
BM gave up on the Ritter Grips to make this crappy replacement?!?! The Freek lineup sucks and will NEVER supplant the standard Griptilians and Mini-Grips. Sold mine within the month
Not a huge fan

I ordered the mini Freek by accident intending to order the full size. I decided to check it out anyway and thought the size alone wouldnít be a deal breaker. The size for my hand was not right and I just couldnít get over the grippy texture of the scales. That being said, itís a Benchmade and the action was flawless. Iíll check out another full size knife.
Good knife

Good knife especially if you have smaller hands. Can handle pretty much any task with ease. Only issue I have is the handle feels a bit on the cheap side

The only downside is the tacky grip. While it is great for using this knife, its hard to get it in and out of the pocket. Overall a good buy.
