It's got a small switch that operates the knife. It's a great lock! I want this one!

Holy shit! $250 for a knife? Is it titanium coated uranium?

Benchmade axis lock is patented to benchmade only. Im not familar with the cold steel lock, but I can tell you its probably not the same thing.

The axis lock is basically a hardened steel bar that is pushed into place by 2 very strong omega springs. once in place, it locks itself into a knotch in both liners, and sits above the back of the tang, making it impossible to fail unless the harned steel bar is broken. It has been tested at hundreds of pounds of pressure before the bar fails. Basically the blade will snap before the bar more than likley. Its also 100% ambidextrous, which doesnt seem to useful untill you own one.

Cold steel makes very nice knives. There are probably the only other knife I would ever buy (unless spyderco made a thumbstud and a "normal" design ), but I would never in a million years go from a benchmade to a cold steel. I own one cold steel, good knife, but still dont carry it every day. Anyway, knives are kinda like Jeeps. Youll find a million knives build a million different ways, but you need to find the one that suits YOU.. ie. your budget, your uses etc.

I just cant believe someone that owns a benchmade would go any other way. Kinda like going from a jeep to a cavalier Anyway, the Spydercos and cold steels mentioned are very quality knives, but I still stand by my opinion that if you tried an axis lock knife you wont go any other way

That would just great! The radiation would melt off your skin and that of your enemy as well, so it wouldn't mater if the blade was sharp or not. Just freakin wonderful!

So, did you ever make a decision and get one? I just picked up a griptilian benchmade for my buddy for xmas, and thought about this thread. Nice knife too, think it was $75 bucks, axis lock, 154cm blade steel.

WE WANT PICS OF THE NEW KNIFE!

Some of you guys have some really nice blades. I can't justify spending that much since the majority of mine are used as tools and abused. I still use a decent blade (gerber) but I couldn't bring myself to use something I paid a lot of cheese for.

No its an axis lock. Normal, non automatic axis lock. I explained earlier in the thread how it works. Ive had a few autos, including a benchmade, and I swear this normal axis lock knife is the smoothest and easiest to open knife if you know how to use it right. Its still the smoothest knife Ive handled regardless, but if you know how to use the lock to deploy the blade properly, you barley even have to move your wrist..

I thought the same thing untill I bought one. My buddy has been saying the same thing for years also. He swears by CRKT. Cheap, disposable, and reliable for a decent amount of time. I bought him a cheap blue class, and he wont touch anything else either.

I beat the living heck out of my knives. Just because I spent 150-270 for a knife doesn't mean I am afraid to abuse it. They have lifetime warranties as long as you don't do anything retarded, but I have yet to test how good that works. I have one BM thats 3 years old, used it every day for 2.5 years, and the only thing that ever went wrong was the belt clip bolts got stripped (my fault). BM fixed that free of charge.

Gerbers, CRKT, Spyderco, Cold Steel, there all good knives, to each their own, but I swear by Benchmade. Ive owned all of those knives you all have listed, but I stand by benchmade whole hartedly. Some of you swear by OME suspension, or Absolute Offroad, or DPG, or IPF or w/e. I swear by Surefire and Benchmade
