Why We Like It

One handed operation and a sure grip are great features of this knife. The smooth opening action shows the time and precision Benchmade has placed on their knives.

Description

Introducing another ultimate in functional synergy. Single-hand ambidextrous, Manual AXIS open function. It's an unbeatable duplicate of the Benchmade automatic Model 5000 Auto AXIS, but in a Manual version! Secure grip is had with a unique two-directional tread machined into the aluminum handle scales. Movable steel carry-clip clips in for action when you need it. Your world demands performance at a moment's notice, and the Benchmade 520 continues to deliver full on!

Other

154CM - An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.

Drop-Point - A slow convex-curved drop in the point characterizes a drop-point blade. The drop-point format lowers the point for control but adds strength to the tip. Usually coupled with plenty of belly for slicing, this format is often used for hunting knives. It is also a fantastic all-around blade format. This blade shape can be found on a wide array of knives.

AXIS - A patented Benchmade exclusive, 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 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.

Black Class products are designed, developed and tested for extreme duty. They are the preferred cutting tools for Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Elite Military Troops around the globe.
