The AFO II 9051 has a matte satin finished drop point style blade with a plain cutting edge. The handle is black anodized aluminum with a fully reversible pocket clip. Includes a ballistic nylon sheath with Malice clip.

The Benchmade AFO II automatic knife is an evolution of the 9050 AFO, one of the most practical automatic knives ever made. The improvements made to this knife are substantial. The knife is large, sturdy and built for use with an improved push button lock that is 30% stronger than the original. The AFO 2 has an over-sized firing button for easy operation, even with gloves. The 154-CM stainless steel blade deploys quickly and the 6061 T-6 aluminum body is an ideal size for a rock-solid grip and now includes a steel glass breaker tip. The open backspacer design makes cleaning and maintenance easy. The sliding safety on the back does its job flawlessly. The AFO II is a truly superior knife design in every respect.

A tank of a knife

Carried this knife for years doing law enforcement. It's cut a lot of stuff. It's been dropped and abused. It never once let me down. The lockup is powerful and the blade shape is perfect. I love the fact it has a safety on it for when I pocket carry it. This knife is bullet proof. It has been an exceptional tool for many years. Can't say enough good things about it. It is one of my knives that I never have to second guess. Total quality. Thank you Benchmade.

Quality throughout. Well thought out and executed. Works EVERY time. Holds a great edge and works well as a skinning knife as well as all around camp knife, indispensable. Quick in the woods, it just can't be beat, easy to clean and keep that way. Simple one handed operation with the other hand tied up and not worry about locking. 5 stars for this one.
