Jonas @jiknives killed it with this matching pair of Joule’s😍 A little over 5 weeks remaining, get your passes at:
I present a matching Joule and Mini Joule pair headed to CCKS. Norris damascus blades, black timascus frames, Westinghouse micarta overlays, black timascus and zirconium accents. California’s state colors are gold and blue, I tried to represent that in these builds as much as possible, you’ll notice the yellow and blue represented in other items I am bringing to CCKS as well, or that’s the plan anyway. #customknives#westinghousemicarta#blacktimascus#zirconium#norrisdamascus#jiknives#westyforthewestcoast#ccks2019#usnstagram
Finally getting around to a full review of this beast! This is the Benchmade 560-1 Freek. It’s an evolution of the original Freek and is complemented with milled and radiused G10 scales, a red G10 base layer and red backspacers, and an awesome M4 blade in a saber grind (some websites claim a hollow grind, but it certainly looks flat to me) hardened to 62-64 HRC. This is a big boy with a 3.6 in cerakoted blade and a thick 5 in handle. It carries dense, but man I love it.
Let’s start with ergonomics: they are out of this world. This knife feels excellent in hand and competes directly with Spyderco’s Shaman and Cold Steel’s AD-10. The G10 has the perfect amount of traction and the sculpting is just enough to guide your hand easily toward the Ritter-esque blade. I have no evidence of this, but I believe this knife is a product of his design sense, but wasn’t released until after Benchmade split with him. Take that with a grain of salt, but compare this to Hogue’s new Ritter Mk. 1 and you’ll see what I mean.
In any case, the 560-1 seems to be intended for hard use thanks to the handle construction and steel choice, M4 being a relatively tough tool steel. Unfortunately, though it is objectively a very strong locking system, the Axis Lock paired with this heavy blade leads to some occasional lock rock. This may only be a matter of the lock needing to settle, but regardless, it’s a bit irritating. However, the action is great and very affirmative. Another knock is bad blade centering; mine was leaning pretty hard on receiving it. Personally I don’t really care about centering as long as the blade isn’t rubbing, and it’s not in this case.
All in all, a hard hitter which is subjected to typical Benchmade shortcomings. I highly recommend it, however, because of its excellent steel choice and fantastic ergos. Thanks for reading!

I haven't seen many owls out and about but I'll be on the hunt for some this weekend. Snowy owls should be migrating through the area soon. The days are getting significantly shorter and soon we'll be down to just a few precious hours of sunlight a day.
