Customer Reviews

Love this knife
Chris G. on Jan 5, 2018

I have a lot of knifes. This is the best benchmade I've used for the price. I prefer the hole opposed to the stud to open knifes so this was perfect for me. With the axis lock you can just release it and flip it open as fast as any high dollar auto. The knife came very sharp and centered right. The G-10 grips are light and have a great grip. It carries very well and is another excellent example of a quality Benchmade.
