Benchmade Foray AXIS Folding Knife – 698

  • $369.90
    Unit price per 
Tax included.


Much like its popular predecessor, the 698 Foray offers gent-styling in a larger overall profile, translating to improved handling and all-around utility. The G10 handles are extremely durable, impervious to moisture or liquid and physically stable under climate change.

A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100 percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar that 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.
