Benchmade Osborne Axis Folder Knife
Better than advertised
This knife is all that I had hoped it would be. It is light and tight, not to mention very sharp. The blade material is advertised to be 154CM stainless steel. The knife I received has a blade of S30V stainless steel, which is fine with me. If you know knifes then you know the S30V stainless is one of the best knife steels on the market today. The blade locks up rock solid with no hint of play. I am a happy camper. This is a great knife in my opinion and should last for many years of hard use.

I'm 58 years old and have been carrying pocket knives since about the age of 10, and this Benchmark Osborne is the best knife I've ever had, seen, used or touched. I'm five years into ownership, it's been in my pocket every day, and I can say that this is really quite a magnificent tool. It's rugged, tough, sharp, cool, easy to use, left or right handed (for opening with one hand), has a smooth and perfectly working hinge, etc. I really can't say enough nice things about it. But if you want an excellent knife, and can afford the steep price, it's my opinion that you cannot find or buy a better knife than this one.

I have only owned this knife for about a month now but man am I happy with it. This is my first Benchmade knife but it definately won't be my last. I was a little skeptical about spending $200 on a knife but it is definately one of those things that you get what you pay for. It is extremely smooth operating and rugged. I love the blade shape and the way it fits in my hand and my pocket. The knife wasn't extremely sharp when it arrived but after a few times on a stone, it'll shave hairs. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a great quality all around pocket knife.

best blade i have ever owned
this blade is by far the best i have ever owned.
after many years in my pocket im sad to say someone stole it when i was at work. im married now and my wife just cant see buying another one....especially with a baby on the way. so i will save my pennies and hopefully in the future i can get a replacement.
btw after using this for many years i dont want to just buy any knife, i want the benchmade osborne axis 940.
nothing else will do!
buy this it is so worth it as you will not want to replace it for a very long time.
