New for 2015, the Benchmade 808SBK Loco Axis Lock Knife is coming soon!

Benchmade wanted to incorporate a more edgy, aggressive look into their line-up with the 808 Loco. This stout folder has a thick G10 handle with a stainless liner and utilizes the patented AXIS lock system for smooth deployment. The blade is a partially serrated sheepsfoot design, built from reliable CPM-S30V stainless steel coated black with an oval hole opener. Comes with a reversible, tip up deep carry clip for a discreet look in the pocket as well as a lanyard tube allowing the user to add their own personal touch.

About the Axis Lock: When the Axis Lock first hit the market it began to shake things up in a big way. Knives were generally using either a liner lock or lock back mechanism at the time, and the frame lock wasn't largely adopted yet. Built using a pin riding on two omega springs, the Axis lock is one of the smoothest, strongest locks on the market today. It allows for ambidextrous use, and has been reported to support weight in excess of 200 pounds without damage. What we consider the best part of this mechanism is often the least talked about; the users hand can stay completely clear of the blade during closure. This makes the Axis system one of the safest locks on the market today.
