In 2013 the Volli was
added to the Benchmade family, this folder uses Benchmade's
trademark Axis-assist for quick one handed operations. It has the
stainless-steel alloy, an excellent lock mechanism, a tactical opening
mechanism and maximum durable handles.
The Benchmade AXIS-Assist is a
long-proven mechanism to both open and firmly lock a tactical folder
blade. The Volli has dual, ambidextrous thumb studs to start the
one-hand opening, and then the spring takes fully over to open the
blade. The locking bar in the middle of the liner slides forward in the
tang slot and the blade is locked, period. The tang-lock is as close as
any folding knife gets to being a fixed blade. The locking bar is also
ambidextrous, so the Volli can be unlocked by sliding the bar to the
rear with either the thumb or index finger or more commonly by a pinch
Made out of S30V blade steel, right out
of the box this knife is razor sharp! The S30V is an American-made and
developed premium grade stainless steel created especially for knives.
It is a powder-made steel with a uniform carbide distribution and clean
steel properties. As a blade material, it offers excellent corrosion
resistance and superb edge qualities.The Volli uses a 3 ¼-inch long drop
point blade with a thin profile of the blade makes it a excellent
slicer. The handle on the Benchmade Volli is constructed using black
contoured G10 handles. The scales on this knife have a smooth elegant
texture that almost feels sleek and smooth in your hand. The Volli also
has full stainless liners that are built into the G10 scales and
checkered back-spacers.And in typical Benchmade fashion, there milled out for weight savings.
The pocket clip is Benchmade's standard
split-arrow design. The clip is placed higher on the handle so it
conceals most of the knife in your pocket.
