Designed around Benchmade's patented AXIS locking mechanism; an ingenious creation touted as quite possibly "the strongest folding lock ever," this ultra rugged tactical folder offers all-out, no compromise performance and utility. Its unique locking mechanism is not only extremely tough, but it also makes for one of the smoothest opening folders in existence. The 3.4 blade is constructed of 154CM, an American made premium grade stainless steel known for good corrosion resistance and noted for its ruggedness and edge-holding quality. Featuring a black, Tanto Point blade with a partially serrated edge, these folders all feature a machined G10 handle for an enhanced grip and exceptional durability. A removable, reversible, black metal pocket clip offers the choice of left or right side clip mounting.
