Benchmade built only 200 of these. And even with a suggested retail price of $1,200, they’re gone almost as soon as they surface.
Still, we thought you’d enjoy a close-up look at a spectacular knife you may never see in person. It’s a 908-151 AXIS Stryker II.
The drop-point blade is crafted of Chad Nichols Starfire Damascus, with a hand-convexed and polished edge. The scales are hand-blended “Lightning Strike” carbon fiber, as are the matching pivot ring and backspacer. The bolsters and pocket clip are stone-washed titanium, and the AXIS lock mechanism is highlighted with blue-anodized titanium accents.
Benchmade really hit it out of the park with this Gold Class beauty. The attention to detail is positively stunning.
