JCS05Rubi 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

pick Might be an after Christmas persent to myself. But did find out there's a Benchmade dealer about 3-5 minutes from the house.
12-18-2007 07:44 AM
JCS05Rubi 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.

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!

JCS05Rubi 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

sgnellett Man, my eyes must be getting bad, I watched that video, it didn't look like that thing had any kinda lock at all that I could see, cuz I never saw anything that looked like he released it, it looked like it just flipped open & shut like a pair of scissors!
12-12-2007 06:46 PM
RIPBiker13 I'm familiar with that lock. It's awesome! And from what I understand, it's the safest lock currently available.

RIPBiker13 What is an axis lock? Is that the lock that Cold Steel uses?
12-12-2007 02:46 PM
JCS05Rubi Ya, S&W outsource to a different cutlery, and Ive neber had good luck with them.

Emerson and benchmade dont collaberate. Benhmade pays designers, but build all there blue/black/gold class knives in house in WA i believe.

I cant stress an axis lock enough go play with one..youll never touch that liner lock h&k benchmade again unless your axis is at benchmade being sharpened

A knife is the most expensive pry bar you will ever own.
