After owning this 560 for a short time,I am astonished by its overall build quality. Benchmade did some serious work designing this Freek you can tell. It shares some lines with the legendary Griptilian, yet feels nothing like it in hand. The S30V blade( a huge upgrade !) is more substantial, nearly a full flat grind,yet the thickness of its spine allows a more robust tip, bravo Benchmade, in real world use this tip will survive. The 560 handle scales may not please everyone as it's grivory material does snag a touch while sliding the knife in jeans, however when in hand I feel it's a huge winner.I have average fingers and this knife feels nearly perfect with its slightly sticky scales nicely contoured, both regular and reverse grip are sweet. Some have complained about the lack of full steel liners, I feel this is way overstated, no way was it designed for extreme hard use or as an ultra tactical self defense knife! Keeping the Freek's weight down was clearly a priority and in fact it feels amazingly light in hand or pocket for a large folder. For my use I.E camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, general house and yard work this 560 checks all the boxes. For its price I can see this knife getting popular, the Axis lock is unmatched and flicking the blade open or closed is a breeze and you can see those phosphorus washers in use. I would say buy the Freek without hesitation, I'm thinking about the blacked out version next!
