In addition to eight new models, including one new model from HK Knives, Benchmade will also unveil its new proprietary mechanism: the AXIS Dual Action. “As the year winds down for the 15th anniversary of the AXIS lock, we look to take this proven mechanism to its next evolution,” says Jason Boyd, Director Of Product for Benchmade Knife Company. The AXIS Dual Action mechanism allows the user to operate the knife either manually, and/or automatically through a single control while providing the strength and reliability of the original AXIS lock.
The first product to feature the new AXIS Dual Action mechanism is the 5400 Serum, which utilizes G10 handle scales and an ELMAX steel blade.
Included in the lineup of new releases from Benchmade is a new Shane Sibert design (757 VICAR), a full size and mini AXIS Stryker featuring a drop-point style blade (908 & 904), and 3 new HUNT line models (15003-2, 15008-BLK & 15009-ORG).
HK Knives will introduce its new out-the-front (OTF) knife, the 14808 TURMOIL at the show. “With the popularity of out the front knives growing in the last few years, we’re excited at this new addition to the HK line,” says Jon de Asis, Product Line Manager of HK Knives.
You can checkout all of Benchmade’s new offerings at their booth (#1) this weekend at the 2014 Blade Show in Atlanta, GA Cobb Galleria.
