More about the AXIS locking mechanism from Benchmade Knives....The features of the AXIS lock are significant and greatly enhance the function of knives. First and foremost is the strength. This lock is definitely more than adequate for the demands of normal knife use.

A close second to strength is the inherent AXIS advantage of being totally ambidextrous without user compromise. The blade can be readily opened or closed with either hand - without placing flesh in the blade's path.

And, finally, the indescribable smoothness with which the mechanism and blade function is due to the lack of traditional friction parts in the AXIS mechanism, making the action that much smoother. And, it's all reasonably exposed so you can easily remove unwanted debris.

AXIS gets its function from a spring-loaded bar that rides back and forth in a slot that's machined into both liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spanning the space between the liners and positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped notch cut into the tang portion of the knife blade when  opened. Two omega-style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang, and, as a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar.
