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.

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.
