Brand new for 2020 is the Benchmade 565-1 Mini Freek. This series of knives is the smaller version of the popular 560 Freek. Benchmade has shrunk this down to the size of the mini griptilian and kept all of the great features of the original.
The 565-1 product of the series sports a wider than the griptilian drop point blade in a CPM-S90V. The handles are a black textured carbon fiber. The AXIS lock ensures solid lockup and the pocket clip is reversible for right or left hand carry.
Benchmade has been very inconsistent over the past few years and i have returned over half the knives I've ordered due to QA issues. However, this knife is much better. The knife is centered, no blade play or lock rock, this is a keeper!
