    auto knifes are "meh". My presidio axis-lock is just as fast to open, and much faster to close.

    And gerber never kept a good edge for me.

    "The stainless steel blade is made using S30V, a premium stainless steel that stands up to incredible abuse while holding it's edge like no other. Available only to military and public safety personnel. "


    This locks both open and closed.

    and yet the benchmade still opens as fast, locks open, and closes much faster.

    The Gerber 06 Automatic features an over-sized release button for use with gloves, a slide safety that engages in both the open and closed positions, a stainless steel pommel with a strike point and a lanyard hole compatible with 550 cord, a partially serrated edge, and a contoured aluminum handle for a secure grip whether your working with blade or the handle.


    Oh and is Mil spec.

    I been looking at a full auto cut stick. Is Boeker a good brand? Most of the ones I see have flimsy safety catches and the ones that are good are a little smaller than I perfer.

    Oh yea, it HAS to have a non-serrated blade.

    Oh and this has a switch to lock so the button won't let it open or close depending on it's position when you engage it.

    that's realy great that you can throw-around marketing buzz words. Every one of your posts prove you know less and less.

    The benchmade is AS FAST TO OPEN, SAFER WHEN CLOSED. HAS A LANYARD HOLE, HAS A PARTIALLY SERRATED EDGE, HAS A CONTOURED ALUMINUM HANDLE,etc, etc, etc.

    And the benchmade is EASIER TO CLOSE!!!

    you are. You are throwing around all these marketing buzz words when practically every knife has them.

    opening quickly is an advantage.
    closing quickly can be equally advantageous.
    staying closed is very important for safety.


    Compared to an auto-open knife, an Axis-lock-equipped knife will open just as quickly, will close more quickly, and will stay closed without additional safeties or moving parts that are required by an auto knife.

    In fact, when you consider that an auto-open knife must first have it's safety disabled before actuating the auto-release mechanism -- the axis-lock is actually faster at opening.




    Your ignorance is apparant when you think that an auto-open knife is in some way "cool" or better than a traditional folding design.

    nope. And mine is easier to open in a stressed situation. I don't have to flick a safety off before opening it.
