CPM-S30V Stainless Steel
A premium steel created especially for knives, it is a powder steel creaing uniform carbide distribution and clea steel properties. As a blade material, it offers excellent corrosion resistance and superb edge qualities. This stainless steel is extremely well balanced, making it one of the best all-around choices for daily tasks.

AXIS Lock
A Benchmade original, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100 percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is positioned over springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang id wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
