Benchmade 705 Mnin Axis

Oct 5, 1998
I recived a new catalogue from BM yesterday and have gone nearly blind with desire at the new mini Axis, fully ambidextrous, under 3" blade etc.

Has any one seen/fondled a proto?

BM said that they should be out early summer, should I start to get excited now or wait as I now how long the first models took to come to fruition.
