Benchmade 565 Mini Freek pocket knife, plain edge satin blade
The Benchmade 565 Mini Freek is practical pocket knife for daily use. Light in terms of weight, massive in terms of performances. A great pocket knife to become acquainted with Benchmade's American production.
The Benchmade Mini Freek is enhanced with a compact and manageable blade made from CPM S90V steel. An American metallurgical type of powder steel. Sounds difficult, but it is important for you to know that this is high-tech steel with excellent properties for a pocket knife. Good sharpness retention, excellent rust resistance and pretty good to sharpen yourself.
Benchmade used a relatively new type of material for the handle: Versaflex. A light-weight thermo-plastic that feels great in hand. To make sure the blade is strong enough a steel liner was placed around the pivot.
You can easily open the Mini Freek with one hand. When opened Benchmade's famous Axis-lock keeps the blade in place. In terms of construction this pocket knife is completely symmetric. As such it is perfect for both left and right-handed use. The pocket clip is placed for right-handed use, but with the Torx T6 screwdriver you can easily change it for left-handed use.
So, are you looking for a light weighted pocket knife with a large blade for daily chores? If so the Benchmade Mini Freek is a great choice!
