Up for sale is a...
Custom GREEN Anodized Titanium Axis Lock Bar to fit the
Benchmade 940-1, 940-2, 940, 943 Series Knives. (plus many others as well)
The 940-1 factory Axis lock is not titanium.
Upgrade the standard axis lock to an ANODIZED GREEN Rust Proof Titanium Axis Lock.
Not only do they look great but they are also lighter than the factory standard version.
This Custom Titanium Axis Lock Bar is a direct replacement for the Benchmade 940 Series Knives.
Please note: No knives pictured or mentioned are for sale.
What is included in this sale is only 1 x Titanium Axis Lock to fit the original
Benchmade 940-1 knife. Consisting of 1 x GREEN Anodized part in total.
Green is the hardest color to anodize, this color can vary on single parts to full sets from a Blue Green to a Yellow Green color.
I have almost perfected it and I will try my best to keep the color as consistent as possible within any set purchased as many things affect it.
Like ambient temperature, age of chemical mix, length of time anodizing, voltage, pre-cleaning procedure, voltage contact etc.
(I am often re-doing it a few times to get it right, or wasting parts or throwing away parts in the process, it can easily take around 2 hours per set to get right)
Green is also very hard to capture on a photograph as it's true color may look different under different lighting conditions or on different angles.
or even on different screens when being viewed. The green anodizing color is around the Pantone 339 Green color.
Please take this a general color range only. As in real life it looks brighter due to titanium's metallic surface reflecting through the color
This color is also NOT guaranteed to match any stock Benchmade aluminum scales or standoffs.
Additional Titanium 940-1 parts: If wanting the Full Parts Set (screw set / standoffs / pivot set / axis lock bar / thumb stud set) it is best to order
ALL the 940-1 parts at the same time. So it will be in the same anodizing batch and match much better than if ordered at a later date.
* By placing an order for this GREEN part you are accepting there could be a variation in color to what is pictured.
THE BENCHMADE AXIS LOCKING SYSTEM IS QUITE FIDDLY TO TAKE APART AND RE-INSTALL.
YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE YOUR WHOLE KNIFE APART IN ORDER TO INSTALL THIS PART.
THERE ARE 2 WIRE SPRINGS HOLDING IT ALL TOGETHER. SO BE
CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE
THESE SPRINGS AS THEY ARE VITAL FOR A FUNCTIONING AXIS LOCK.
THERE WILL ALSO BE A SLIGHT COMPROMISE IN BLADE OPENING SMOOTHNESS FROM THE
TITANIUM PART RUBBING ON THE BLADE TANG AREA. POSSIBLY LUBE OR POLISHING THE
TANG CAN HELP. THE AXIS LOCK BAR COMES ALREADY POLISHED TO A SMOOTH SURFACE.
BY PURCHASING THIS ITEM YOU ARE AWARE OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED AND THAT DAMAGE
OR THE POTENTIAL FOR MISSING PARTS COULD OCCUR AS A RESULT OF TAKING OUT THE
ORIGINAL AXIS LOCK BAR. YOU ALONE WILL BE TAKING FULL RESPONSIBLY FOR ANY SUCH
DAMAGE OR LOSS. (THE BENCHMADE WARRANTY MIGHT NOT COVER THESE TYPES OF MODS)
IF YOU ARE NOT CONFIDENT IN TAKING APART AND PUTTING YOUR KNIFE BACK TOGETHER
(OR IF ANYTHING ELSE GOES WRONG), IT IS BEST NOT TO BUY THIS ITEM.
To install this Custom Titanium part, good quality Torx tools will be needed. (Such as Wiha Torx tools)
Once you have received a colored titanium product. It may appear to have lost color once touched,
this is only just the oil from your hands. If the oil has been cleaned off the color will come back.
Use acetone or nail polish remover to clean the oil off the anodized surface.
The custom anodizing will look new again!
