Benchmade makes fantastic knives. Their H&K line of knives are built in their factory with the HK logo. Each one of these knives carry the legendary craftmanship as well as the warranty of a Benchmade knife.
One of the extremely popular styles of knives they build are the AXIS knives. These knives have a pull slide in the handle that allows you to either unlock the blade (from the locked open position) or to open the knife. This particular knife the 14255, is a manual folder that can be opened by pushing on the thumb stud. The blade glides open easily. The 14255 sports a tanto point blade with a plain (unserrated) edge.
One of the very nice things about this particular model is the G10 handles are built flat. This means the 14255 has an extremely thin profile for very comfortable carry in your pocket. The pocket clip is reversible for right or left handed users (tip up).
