Product Description

The Benchmade 522 series has a 440C blade (plain). The drop point blade featured ambidextrous thumb-studs. The handles are textured Noryl GTX (tough and lightweight!) over a steel frame. The 522 line has the AXIS lock system which makes the knife easier (and faster) to open and close. The pocket clip can be reversed for right or left handers. Over all this is an excellent knife with a good feel and weight- something you could trust your life with.

I tried to tell Amazon Customer Service about this before, that this knife is being advertised erroneously as having AXIS ASSIST when in fact it uses an AXIS Lock system. Those of you who know of AXIS ASSIST I'm sure saw that and might just have believed in miracles for a split second, but of course, Benchmade does not provide the Presidio knives with AXIS ASSIST. There is a very big difference between the two, and of course Amazon just loves to misconstrue and tangle up the meaning of everything people try to tell them.

Now that it seems government can take over control of any business they want (I'm really using a lot of constraint here), maybe now an ACT OF CONGRESS will convince Amazon that this knife does not really have AXIS ASSIST.

Amazon, pay attention! IT NEVER DID, IT DOESN'T HAVE IT NOW, AND IT PROBABLY NEVER WILL! (Even though I wish it would)!

So Amazon Customer Service, take my word for it, and contact Benchmade about this. In the meantime, change the words AXIS ASSIST to read instead, AXIS Lock because by using the words AXIS ASSIST you are falsely advertising this product!

The Knife of course, IS GREAT! It's a BENCHMADE. Need I really say more?

I've heard for years that Benchmade in many of it's forms is the standard for edged weapons of all sorts but I've not been able to afford one until recently. I lost my fav Kershaw Blackout and decided to give this Benchmade Presidio a try. I'm glad I went to the trouble with it because I've discovered that I much prefer the Kershaw. The Benchmade Presidio is inferior and now I can stop wondering. If the blade quality alone is at all indicative of Benchmade's overall quality control I won't buy another knife from them. Read on to know why.

From the start, this knife presented a very neat, tight, clean package when it arrived. I prediceted good things. It was smooth, finely finished and nearly flawless in every aspect. It was tightly manufactured, but not so tight as to make it not function cleanly.

I quickly discovered, however, that carrying this Presidio with its "tip-up" posture was dangerous for me. On numerous occasions I reached for the knife, the thumb stub hung up a bit on the edge of my pocket and the blade started to come open before it was clear. On one occasion it cut a 1/4 inch notch in the pocket. Glad that wasn't my finger or worse. This never happened with the Kershaw because it's carried in a "tip-down" posture. Never one accidental deployment in over five years of carry with that knife.

The texture of the handle on the Presidio was excellent and felt good in the hand, but it's so rough between the pocket clip and the handle that it started to fray the edges of my pocket after only a few weeks of carrying. Too much of a good thing is, in this case, too much.

The Axis lock is of a nice design and way more involved than the simple liner lock on the Blackout. Not sure which is stronger, but never had a problem with either.
