The AFO II 9052SBK has a black BK1 finished Tanto blade with a partially serrated 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.
VERY NICE KNIFE, WELL BUILT SURE BEATS THE ARMY ISSUE SWITCHBLADE I CARRIED YEARS AGO.. I WILL BE BACK..
Nice knife. I’d say it can take some abuse and keep standing. The texture of the handle is like an extreme chalkboard.
Purchased this after buying a dud from Gerber. Couldn't be happier. Fit and finish is perfect, opens with such force it almost wants to come out of your hand. Blade is centered and all grinds are even and straight. Hats off to Benchmade, I am very pleased. As usual Blade HQ shipped promptly and packaged well. A+ for all involved
This auto is perfect for a work knife. Easy to deploy with leather gloves on and just as easy to put away. Handles are amazing and the perfect size for gripping with or without gloves. Highly recommended! I plan on getting the non serrated drop point as an out door knife because I liked this one so much. If you get this knife, you will not be disappointed.
