It features a 3.45" blade of 154CM stainless steel, AXIS lock mechanism, ambidextrous thumb-stud openers, molded handle with steel liners and a reversible pocket clip. The blade of this knife is treated with the durable titanium BP1 finish. Benchmade knives are covered under a limited lifetime warranty.

Technical Information

  • Overall Length = 8.07"
  • Closed Length = 4.62"
  • Blade Length = 3.45"
  • Blade Thickness = 0.115"
  • Weight = 3.25oz

  • Lock Type: Axis

    The AXIS lock gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar it?s inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
