This is the PREFECT EDC knife. It truly disappears In your pocket and is easily deployed when needed. The Axis Assist pops the blade out of the handle and a simple wrist flip opens the blade fully. I have to open boxes and cut plastic rather often at work and this knife works wonderfully when called upon for quick use. The blade, as you might expect, is a little thin to pry or twist a screw with. However, it is designed as a quick access knife and it is perfect for that function. Enjoy!
The milled herringbone pattern makes for a great grip with gloves and the edge is what you would expect from a benchmade blue series, straight out of the box it shaved the hair off the back of my hand and cut paper to slivers. The knife is sharp looking and very lightweight for its size. I get compliments all the time.
