Benchmade Knives: 908BK-1501 - AXIS Stryker II - Carbon Fiber - CPM-M4
The Stryker® 908BK-1501 - A KnivesShipFree exclusive
You already know that we're big fans of AXIS folders. We've always wanted to collaborate with Benchmade on an exclusive and, at long last, here it is: the 908BK-1501 AXIS STRYKER, available only from KnivesShipFree.
This very special model is a full-size folder that carries like a much smaller knife. Credit its light weight (4.35 ounces) to carbon-fiber scales and blue-anodized spacers. It also benefits from a deep-carry pocket clip, which is reversible.
The heart of any knife is its blade, of course, and this black-coated beauty sets a new standard -- it's crafted from CPM-M4 "super steel," a high-vanadium carbon steel with great edge holding and toughness, along with excellent resistance to corrosion.
We're thrilled to offer the 908-1501 AXIS STRYKER, but hurry -- quantities are limited.

I own the Axis Stryker mini with 154 CM steel, and I just purchased this upgraded stryker with the M4 steel, very happy with the cutting edge. And excited about the better steel. The overall build quality is excellent. I would love to see a matching mini version, just for the sake of reduced weight. Although from the specs you can see that the full-size is not bad at 4.3 ounces. Great HEC knife for edc
very good quality, Represents an HEC EDC knife, High end Carry knife. After one week of break in, pivot mechanism runs as smooth as butter. I love the upgraded steel as it has better edge retention.
Let's start with, I love M4 steel. I have a Spyderco GB so I knew I wanted more knives with this steel. I initially dismissed it because of the coating as I really like the slight patina the steel will take but broke down and gave the knife a chance. I'm glad I did. I tend to fidget a lot and the axis lock is ideal for that. The handle is comfortable in all grips I use and the knife rides well in pocket. Nothing negative to say about the knife, I'm not minding the coating, it's really tough. I hit a couple hd staples and not only did it not even knick the blade but they barely scratched the ceracoat. If you're on the fence like I was, get it. You won't regret it.
