I just love Benchmade folding knives and the Presidio is my favorite for everyday use because of its perfect size and for the way it feels in your hand. The machined aluminum handle offer the perfect grip, and the Axis lock is simply the best there is. The Presidio comes in two sizes, this one being the large one, and with several blade styles and finishes: plain edge, combination edge/serrations (in black)or Tanto (plain, or black with serrations).
I also own an automatic version of the Presidio: the Axis mechanism is just amazing when combined with the auto system!
So why just 4 stars? I just wish the Presidio was available with an S30V steel blade for edge retention, rather than the less exotic 154CM stainless steel. Benchmade is introducing a growing number of knives in S30V and it is just a pity that this option is not available for their best folder...
This knife comes with a removable pocket clip (but not with the tool to remove the Torx screws, which is a T6), and you have to buy the sheath from Benchmade separately.
