a nice surprise!
rick o. on Aug 31, 2021

I got my first automatic knife in 1956 so to say I am an experienced collector is about right. My wife let me pick my birthday (75th) knife and this fact was my choice. It is a wonderful automatic. Benchmade doesn't churn out any poor knives but this one did surprise me. The blade is long and pointed enough there is never a thought about what it can and cannot do. You are never tempted to pry or strain the point and consequently the blade. But what is can do it does very well. The S90V is new to me and I have only sharpened it once. It got back to razor edge quickly once I treated it like four different blades. I was more surprised by the axis opening mechanism. I have an Adams Auto and it takes both fingers and a pull to open it but with this Fact one finger and reasonable pressure if plenty and the speed of lock up is perfect. It will not jump out of your hand but locks up fast and smooth. I received this knife a month ago and have carried it every day since. Not a common trait for an old knife collector. It is a wonderful "little" knife that carries small and light in your pocket but is always a joy to pull out and use....For the uniqueness and functionablity you get this knife is a bargain and that's a Fact!
