Benchmade Freek Folding Knife 3.6" Black Cerakoted CPM-M4 Plain Blade, Black/Gray G10 Handles - 560BK-1
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.
- Cerakote-finished CPM M4 drop point blade.
- Dual thumb stud openers.
- Gray and black G-10 scales over red liners.
- Vault-tight AXIS lock.
- Reversible tip-up pocket clip.

After seeing the other review I had to review it myself. This is an excellent knife with awesome steel. The handle is G10 not plastic and it looks awesome in person. Inside the scales are red and the standoffs are red too which compliment the G10 very nicely. I’m glad it’s in my collection.
I love the M4. Its edge stays unholy sharp and is not hard at all to touch up on ceramic. The handle however was likely built by Matel (the makers of Barbie dolls) or Spyderco.
Tip up only, well not everyone likes that carry but life goes on. No steel liner at all. 100% plastic and screws.
No steel or brass or bone or wood or craftsmanship. Such a great blade with a dollar store handle. It seems Spyderco and Benchmade only deal in plastic now so I think it is time to go try Boker.
