If you are looking for a knife that combines durability, performance, and style, look no further than the Benchmade Freek 560BK-1.

This knife was originally launched as an upgrade model to the Greek, which was hailed as a new iteration of the iconic Griptilian. Since it's an upgraded version of the Freek, it instantly received the catchy and truly awesome named of Super Freek.

This knife features a high-strength CPM-M4 steel blade that can handle any cutting task with ease. The blade has a black coating for corrosion resistance and a sleek appearance.

The handle is made of layered G10, a composite material that offers excellent grip and comfort. The gray and black colors contrast nicely with the red accents on the base layer and the barrel spacers.

It also has an AXIS lock mechanism that ensures a smooth and secure opening and closing. The reversible pocket clip allows you to carry the knife in either tip-up or tip-down position. The Benchmade Freek 560BK-1 is a true super Freek that will impress you with its quality and versatility.

Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. set-up shop in Clackamas, Oregon in 1990 (originally founded in California in 1988). The initial knives primarily consisted of the Bali-Song knives, using a combination of outside vendors and inside processing to build finished products. And like most companies, starting out meant scarce money and big plans, using second hand equipment and limited resources.

Soon, a natural born fortitude and an undying passion to make it right and make it Benchmade, prospered into significant growth. As the product line grew so did the in-house capabilities. We began to acquire new machines and technologies including the first of several lasers, making Benchmade the first knife manufacturer to have such equipment in-house. Open minds and positive attitudes would lead to several more industry firsts over the course of the next several years.

This was only the beginning of Benchmade's breaking of new ground in the manufactured knife markets by using non-traditional materials and modern manufacturing methods in not only building knives better but, inevitably building better knives. The Designer Series was first introduced in 1991 with several custom designs being manufactured. By tapping into the custom knife makers' knowledge and combining it with our manufacturing expertise we were more readily able to offer more contemporary knife designs and innovations to the knife users.

Consecutive years of aggressive growth led to the next logical step in 1996 when Benchmade moved into its own 35,000 sq. ft. facility. A contemporary styled building complete with all of the modern equipment and amenities necessary to manufacture what has become recognized as a higher standard of specialty cutlery.

Today, Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. manufactures knives for a loyal and ever growing following of knife users. As we move into the 21st century we are poised for even more exciting opportunities, innovations and ongoing total world-class quality. Here at Benchmade we employ a simple philosophy- 'Make it cool, make it solid, make it happen and definitely make it Benchmade.'

This ain't no pocket knife

When this knife came on the market I knew I had the perfect folder for my butchering kit. Some might call it pretty, and it is that. Some may call it pricey, and it is every bit of that as well. Yet what I see is a big strong hunk of steel to add to my assortment of cutters to dress down large animals after a successful hunt. When a half ton of elk is down and I need to get that hunk of meat dressed up and cut down I need a blade that stays sharp, tough, and is not going to break apart before the animal gets somewhere I can process it for the freezer. This Super Freek appears to be that and is now the latest edition to my 3 or 4 other blades in the kit I use for a job like this. Tasty Freek, that is what I call my newest elk cutter.
