    Nice knife, I plan on picking up a benchmade soon. I can't decide between the 530 and the hk 14205.

    530

    A real operator would have decided on the HK.

    I've been meaning to buy one of those as a beater/edc knife. Can't decide if I want the full size one or the mini, though.

    +1 Benchmade crew. :)

    I had an one for a year and a half until the screws on the pocket clip somehow got loose and stripped; sent it to Benchmade and they sent me a brand new one in 154CM. :bowdown:

    Benchmade HK Nitrous Blitz is looking good though. :naughty:

    Fuck me for being left-handed and wanting a knife with an appropriate clip on it though. :hs:

    The BM axis system is completely ambidextrous, even the pocket clip. You can put it on the other side, I already looked into this as I am a lefty too. :wavey:

    I'm a lefty myself -- just make sure you put some adhesive to make sure the screw stays in place. Most knife shops should do this for free at that.

    Auto knives are lame. Axis will open as fast, if not faster. Will definitely close faster, and are safer.

    I has this knife. It's not assisted opening, but the mechanism is soooo smooth on it, I really don't think you'd need it (AO). Opens in a flash with the flick of your wrist. I loves it.
