Benchmade Axis Locks

The Benchmade Axis Lock is one of the strongest and safest locks available in the knife industry today. Pioneered by Bill McHenry and Jason Williams, these knives are built with a steel bar riding along the top surface of the blade and are held in place by two Omega springs hidden conveniently in the liners of the knife. This simple mechanism opens and closes with a silky smooth action and even creates a nice detent to keep your blade closed in the pocket. The Lock itself is completely ambidextrous, and in most cases all that is needed to fully convert the knife for left handed users is to simply switch the clip to the other side of the handle.

Benchmade makes several Axis Lock models, including such popular designs as the classic Griptilian, the model 940, the highly popular Bugout 535 and many more.
