Benchmade 9051 AFO II Automatic Knife


Benchmade 9051 AFO II Automatic Knife

The Benchmade AFO II automatic knife is an evolution of the 9050 AFO, one of the most practical automatic knives ever made. The improvements made to this knife are substantial. The knife is large, sturdy and built for use with an improved push button lock that is 30% stronger than the original. The AFO 2 has an over-sized firing button for easy operation, even with gloves. The 154-CM stainless steel blade deploys quickly and the 6061 T-6 aluminum body is an ideal size for a rock-solid grip and now includes a steel glass breaker tip. The open backspacer design makes cleaning and maintenance easy. The sliding safety on the back does its job flawlessly. The AFO II is a truly superior knife design in every respect.

a little heavy

I have carried this knife for a month now. This knife is solid, well constructed and holds an edge well. It is a bit on the heavy side however.

I've never been disappointed by a benchmade

I use the knife both as a law enforcement officer and as horse owner. I've never been disappointed by a benchmade knife and this knife is no exception. I've never owned a auto and I like the convenience of being able to open it when my hand are full.
