Benchmade's 904 Mini-Axis Stryker® Folding Knife is up to the challenge of performing critical tasks during life and death situations on a daily basis.
Benchmade's Stryker® Knife features a 154CM stainless steel tanto blade with a plain or a combination of plain and serrated edges. Like the Japanese Tanto, this Americanized tanto blade has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to this point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong so that it absorbs the impact from piercing. The tanto blade comes with either a stain finish, which creates a low-luster sheen to the steel surface, or a black corrosion-resistant coated blade. The textured G10 handle is impervious to moisture and physically stable under climate change, ensuring that you'll keep a solid grip on the knife during use. The patented, exclusive, 100% ambidextrous AXIS® locking mechanism gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners, and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS® bar itself. From law enforcement and public safety to elite military troops, Benchmade's obligation is still the same: the best tools for the job. Imagine what the Benchmade 909 Axis Stryker Folding Knife can do in your world.

TANTO: Most tantos seen on the American cutlery market are Americanized formats. Like the Japanese tanto, the Americanized tanto has a high point in-line with the pivot. A flat grind is applied to the point, leaving it very thick and extraordinarily strong. This thick area helps absorb the impact from piercing, as the tanto was originally designed for armor piercing. The front edge meets the bottom edge at an obtuse angle rather than curving to meet it as seen in the Japanese tanto. The only negative aspect of the tanto blade shape is the cutting surface area is sacrificed to gain tip strength.
G10 Handle: An extremely durable makeup of layers of fiberglass soaked in resin, then highly compressed and baked. Impervious to moisture or liquid and physically stable under climate change. Most commonly black, but is available in various colors, too.
154CM: An American made premium grade stainless steel originally developed for tough industrial applications. Known for its best all-around qualities, it offers great corrosion resistance with good toughness and edge quality.
