Benchmade Knife Co. (Knives).

Leading the new offerings from this award-winning knife company is the Model 806D2 AFCK Axis. The folder combines hole-in-the-blade opening, Benchmade's AXIS locking mechanism, and the company's popular AFCK design.

This third generation AFCK features a 58-60 HRC hardened D2 stainless steel blade, which offers the edge-holding of 154CM but with the stainless properties of 440C steel. The blade is 3.96 inches long and weighs 4.38 ounces. The knife opened is 9.38 inches long.

The new Benchmade Model 555 Mini Griptilian is a compact version of the Model 550. The knife features a 2.90-inch modified sheepsfoot blade of 440C stainless steel and a handle molded from Noryl GTX 830. It weighs 2.32 ounces.

The Mini Griptilian features the same AXIS lock mechanism used on the Warren Osborne Model 940.
