Benchmade's new AFO II series feature a new and improved Push Button Lock that is more than 30% stronger than the original AFO. The button release is also larger, and the handle has been re-designed with an increased finger guard. The open backspacer was designed with easier maintenance in mind. The AFO II also features a steel glass breaker - crucial in rescue situations where seconds really count.
The AFO II is available with a Utility (9051 series) blade or a Tanto (9052 series) blade. Each style is available with Satin or BK1 coated blade finishes, and also your choice of partially serrated or plain edge blade. The blades are made of 154CM Stainless steel. 6061-T6 hard anodized aluminum handles.

    This is a serious blade. It opens with authority, and the locking mechanism effectively turns it into a fixed blade. It is quite hefty but it does not feel heavy. The pocket clip and the nylon sheath provide several different carrying options. The combination blade is especially effective on heavy rope, and the knife is strongly constructed so it will take punishment for a long time.
    An old mate from the Coast Guard recommended this knife, and he was 110% right.
