Order Details

The Turret™ is a very large AXIS® lock folder which Benchmade claims is one of the strongest locks ever made. The AXIS® lock 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 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. The AXIS® lock has the added benefit of "suck-back" (bias to closure), which encourages the blade to stay in the closed position.

The 3-5⁄8" drop point blade is CPM-S30V stainless at 58-60 Rc. available in either a plain edge with a stonewash finish or combination edge with a black Cerakote® coating. The handle is built with olive drab G-10 scales over black Cerakote® stainless liners. A reversible black coated stainless steel pocket clip is positioned for tip-up deep-pocket carry. Measures 4-7⁄8" closed. Weighs 5.8 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested Retail is $220.00 for stonewash and $235.00 for black blade.
