Benchmade 565-1 Mini Freek

A high-performance pocket knife certainly deserves a high-performance handle. Benchmade has updated its popular 561-1 Mini Freek with a handle made out of the racing world's favorite material, carbon fiber. The handle is designed with the same ergonomics that the Freek series is known for and it's equipped with a CPM-S90V satin-finished steel blade. It also features details like a split arrow clip, true red barrel spacers, and true red thumb studs that add the perfect contrast to the black finish of the carbon fiber.
