After all these years of hearing about Benchmade knives I finally decided to take the plunge and am ever so glad I did! I came across a deal I couldn't pass up for the 560 here and I must say.. there is no comparison! The quality, build, fit as well as the finish is outstanding. You'll not be disappointed with this knife. This guy was razor sharp out of the box and has remained such since it has been placed in service
Thanks, Benchmade brethren! Again I say.. wow! :)

I have been using and collecting knives for 45 years, and I've made knives for 12 years. This is likely the best production knife you will ever own. Top quality, sharp as all get out, and rock solid fit in your hand. Very easy to touch-up and keep sharp. You will not be sorry you purchase this gem. I'm a tough customer to please and I'm telling you this is an outstanding knife.

Bought this at a hunting show based on the alleged “razor sharp” characteristic. I have used this to clean fish pheasant and deer.........all of which were very difficult due to the lack of cutting ability.

I am sending it back to be sharpened ......if it didn’t cost me $150 I would toss it in the garbage.

This is a great knife I carry it everyday. Love the blade shape and the edge holds up nicely. The handle is very grippy and doesn’t feel like it will slip out of my hand. Only complaint is that it can be a little hard to get back in pockets due to the versa flex but other than that a solid knife overall. Highly recommended!

I've had this knife for a while now. It gets used primarily for outdoor and yard maintenance chores and so far it's held up very well. The grip size and texture are excellent for me and the serrated blade is useful when you need that cutting edge. It's too large to be my EDC under my state's blade length limit, but otherwise the Freek has been a solid performer and a good value for the price. Highly recommended.

Just took delivery of a 560S (serrated) Freek. It is the epitome of quality and craftsmanship. The S30V blade cuts effortlessly right out of the box, beautiful finish too. Full knife is extremely light but easy to grip, excellent ergonomics. Axis lock is very convenient, secure, full confidence in that design. There is zero freeplay or tolerance with the action, open or closed, the build is astounding. Only hang-up is what I had read from others, that the rubbery handle grabs your pocket too much. Personally, this doesn’t bother me, but is noticeable, and may be a small hinderance to those wanting a very quick draw. On the other hand, I have no worry of it moving in my pocket or my grip, as long as my draw is deliberate I have no issues. Otherwise, very well done.

I've never been much for really big folders, but this puppy has changed me - probably forever. The tool opens and closes solidly and with precision every time. Blade is big and can cut - no worries. Handle material is really grippy and just stays put in your hand. The blade material and hardness makes it easy to sharpen and to keep it sharp. Dudes - just keep touching them up on your ceramic cross sticks so they don't get too dull and you will have an outstanding pocket knife. Don't you just love it when someone looks at your knife and says, OOOOOhhhh, it's a Benchmade!!!

What a great knife!! I thoroughly enjoyed using and playing with this knife! The s30v steel is amazing on it perfect made for this knife and for what I put it through. The handle is soooo grippy and comfortable! Y’all did I amazing job benchmade designing this knife! I only complaint it the handle feels a light and not as strong as the barrage I have with steel spacers in it. But over all this is a great knife and am still very excited about owning and using it!! Good job everyone at benchmade keep up the great work!!

The Freek is a good knife. Holds an edge, resists rust and staining and locks up tight. Comforting lockup for what is probably borderline abuse on my part. One handed opening is awesome and smooth. I was concerned as I have never carried tip up but now I am converted! Handle grip for days when wet or slimy.
I guess at first it was a bit "sticky" clipping it to the pocket. Either it or I broke in because it is unnoticeable now. Great knife, well designed. Have carved wood, cleaned fish and chopped veggies. Made firesticks, cut 550.......good all around folding knife.
