  • 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’m no expert but for 1,99€ this can’t be any good...can it?? Oh wait, I have a 2€ crappy knife that works miracles in the kitchen. Do miracles exist? Do angels exist? Does Santa exist? 😉
