The knives that we carry in our day to day lives are principally designed to take on jobs big and small. Whether it be cutting open unwieldy bags, clearing obstacles from our path, or having a bit of protection just in case – they’re workhorses. That isn’t to say that it isn’t fun to have a gussied up knife on you, however. Take the Axis Stryker II from Benchmade for instance.
The Oregon based knife maker decided to go all out on this flipper by outfitting it with a drop point Damasteel Odin Heim blade and attaching it to a handle formed out of a mixed black and red carbon fiber. With a blade measuring in at 3.57 inches long and boasting an HRC measurement of 58-60 – it is just as capable a knife as it is great looking one. Whether you are looking to keep this on as a more formal piece of carry or just put it on a mantle, you can pick this up for a flat $600. [Purchase]
