Benchmade's Barrage family of knives were the first to feature the AXIS® Assist mechanism for easy one-handed opening. Symmetrical thumb stud and reversible pocket clip makes these knives ambidextrous and easy to use.
Durable G10 handle is made from layers of fiberglass soaked in resin, highly compressed and baked. This process makes the material impervious to moisture or liquid and physically stable under climate change.
CPM-S30CV Steel (HRC 59-61)
A premium steel created especially for knives, this is a powder steel creating uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties. As a blade material, it offers excellent corrosion resistance and superb edge qualities. This stainless steel is extremely well-balanced, making it one of the best all-around choices for daily tasks.
Over the years, Benchmade has developed a special recipe for heat-treating their blade steels. This process maximizes the steel’s molecular structure for a custom toughness and superior performance.
AXIS® Assist Locking Mechanism
Easily opened, quickly and with one hand; this evolution of the AXIS® includes a spring that helps to fire the blade into the open position once the user pushes it beyond a certain point manually. The AXIS® lock also has the added benefit of "suck-back," which encourages the blade to stay in the closed position. AXIS® Assist knives also feature integrated safety lock systems.
Drop point blades slope on the spine from the handle to the tip. This allows the spine of the blade (where the blade is thicker and thus stronger) to continue forward to the tip of the blade. Durable and easy to control, this is a versatile and popular blade style.
