Form and function in the same package. The first variant in the Freek® family brings together two incredibly durable materials, G10 and CPM-M4 steel. The gray and black layered G10 is milled to provide excellent grip and style, while the red G10 base layer and anodized aluminum barrel spacers bring an additional pop of color to the handles. The high-strength CPM-M4 blade is designed for hard use, pushing the limits of what the already tough Freek® was meant to do. This knife is a true super Freek. Made in USA.

    First Benchmade
    This is my very first Benchmade I have purchased. I can now understand why they are in the higher cost bracket of knives . The first time I held this in my hand it fit like a custom made glove. Was extremely comfortable and felt like it was the perfect tool for me. It took 4 months working out a budget for the purchase am I am extremely happy with it. Love the color combos it has . The blade was dead on center and extremely smooth action not a big fan of black blade colors but it works on this one just perfect for me . This won't be my last Benchmade by any means . It is how ever my first choice for EDC . Thank you Benchmade for outstanding quality builds like this to enjoy on my every day task at work n off work .

    Amazing
    I bought this knife awhile back and this knife is an amazing knife all the way around. I’ve owned kershaws, CRKT’s and many more brands but the quality is unbeatable when it comes to a benchmade. Currently I own this knife, bugout and the classic 940 Osborn and they never cease to amaze me. Awesome company and awesome knife!

    FreakG10
    A few years back I had a Benchmade auto folder that I traded for a gun. Ever since that day I missed it greatly so I decided I would eventually get another. I had my mind made up that I would not settle for anything less then another auto but while looking at all the beautiful knives in the showcase I came upon the FreakG10 and I fell in love! I honestly cannot praise this knife enough. The fit and finish is far superior than anything I have seen in many years. If you are looking for a superior quality knife for your collection and have a couple hundred to spare don't be afraid to give this a look because it is worth every cent! If you are close to a Cabela store you can get it for cheaper. Right now they are price matching and they are matching damn near any price you find on anything throughout the store. I did a quick search and found this knife a little bit cheaper on Amazon. They honored the price and after our 5% military discount I was EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. I cannot say enough. Benchmade has raised my standard in folders and I will proudly be a lifelong purchaser.

    My thoughts
    I started with Gerber back in the 80’s and moved on to Kershaw for years. Owned many different models of both brands. Had probably 30 folders Gerber and Kershaw combined. The reason I had so many is because I didn’t want to spend more than $100 for a flipper but found myself never satisfied. I always wanted a Benchmade because of the reputation of the company and that I am a name brand geek. So I mustard up the courage and bought my first Benchmade December 2019. I bought the Freak BK-01 for my first Benchmade and wow

    Simply awesome EDC knife
    Best feeling handle of any Benchmade I've owned or felt in their factory store, DR style blade made with bomber M4 steel, and great looks. Reasonable weight for such a large EDC knife.

    Better than anticipated
    I started with a 940 Osborne which sold me on tue quality of Benchmade. The 940 os so "right" you don't Know its in your pocket.

    The 560-1 Freak goes to the next level. You dont forget its in your pocket, its super low weight, yet the blade size and grips are striking.

    Feel better equipped with tue 560-1. Its the largest "blue box benchmade. Step up to law enforcement black boxes in tue state of New Jersey for anything automatic or larger.... the 560-1 is a legal EDC in NJ

    Super freaky
    My first Benchmade but not the last. I make banjos with hand tools so I appreciate quality, every part of this knife is quality. The M4 is very hard to resharpen so keep it honed and oiled cause it'll rust quick. The grip is awesome, fills the hand nicely and with confidence. The red anodized aluminium spacers are like mags that complete this hot rod of a knife! Recessed triple point serration make it truly versitile, competent, and a pleasure to use. I work retail in the outdoor Dept at Mast General in NC, we have a very nice knife selection and the best customer service and warrenry for any vendor is Benchmade's Lifesharp policy. Pay shipping to them and have your knife cleaned, oiled, sharpened, and any parts replaced that are not functioning properly. It really is forming a life-long relationship, and that is yet another reason to buy a Benchmade!!

    Benchmade's Best Yet!
    This is such a great knife! Super comfortable ergos, fantastic blade steel, and awesome lockup. I carry this everyday since getting it. I have other knives, but I'm having an affair with this beauty for now. Sleek and functional. Worth every penny, just get it if you haven't yet!

    Upgrade is worth the price
    I have both the 560 Freek, and the 565 Mini. They’re amazing knives, but the grips can tear and rip and the Grivory feel off. Enter the 560-1. The coated M4 is a huge upgrade over S30V, and the G10 is so much more pocketable and friendly in the hand. With a deep carry clip, this thing is getting a lot of pocket time. Now, Benchmade, make the 565-1 mini version! I’d buy in a heartbeat.
