This year's SHOT Show Limited Edition Benchmade knife comes in the form of an upgraded Volli Axis-Assist model. The Volli is know for its utilitarian drop blade shape and ample handle. It opens fast and holds strong thanks to the Axis locking mechanism. Each of these brand new Volli's is part of a 750 piece Run.
The Blade: Super Premium Bohler M390 stainless steel was chosen for this Limited Run. It's razor sharp and offers edge retention leaps and bounds above most of its stainless counterparts. It has a machined satin, lightly tumbled finish and plain cutting edge. A simple nudge on either of its two thumb studs rocket the blade out of its handle. Each is laser marked Limited Edition # of 750 on the back.
The Handle: Very cool and very true to the Benchmade core are the two-tone handle scales. They are layered Benchmade Blue and Gray G-10 for a snazzy appeal. The G-10 is contoured and wavy textured for a solid grip. They are torx screwed to thin, black, skeletonized inset liners that provide the Volli's backbone. The backspacer is notched black and meets up with the safety which keeps the blade in-check.
The proven workhorse Axis Locking mechanism comes with this package making the knife truly ambidextrous. A black split arrow pocket clip is attached for tip-up carry and is reversible for left-hand carry. Grab one of these special SHOT Show Limited Edition's before they're gone.
