Benchmade Griptilian AXIS Lock Black Drop Point Plain Blade Noryl GTX Handles 3.45 Folding Knife - BM-551BK-S30V. The 551BK-S30V Griptilian model features a drop point CPM-S30V blade ambidextrous thumb stud openers and an AXIS lock mechanism. Premium steel created especially for knives it is 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. A Benchmade original AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100 percent ambidextrous design AXIS gets its function from a small hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife spans the liners and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs one on each liner give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
