The Absolute One is the first knife in the Absolute series.  This knife is built to be a Titanium workhouse, while still keeping a uniquely elegant appearance. You’ll notice high quality components right out of the package. The Titanium 4.53 inch handles enclose the stonewashed drop point blade made of Bohler’s M390 super high grade steel. The opening mechanism begins with a simple flip launched by the slight push of a finger and controlled by a ceramic ball bearing system. The blade secures via its Titanium frame lock and is finished with a Titanium pocket clip (tip up).

Original price was: $176.00.Current price is: $129.95.

M390 (Bohler-Uddeholm)
M390 is considered by many on the market to be a super steel due to its excellent corrosion / stain resistance and wonderful hardness / high wear resistance. It’s produced via a third generation powder metal technology and can reach a 60-62 HRC. Bohler calls this steel “Microclean” and it can be polished to a mirror finish. Like many hard steels, the tradeoff on this steel’s most excellent blade retention is that it can be moderately difficult to sharpen, but just moderate. Due to all these fine qualities you can commonly find this used in not only custom knives around the world, but it’s also extremely popular in surgical applications.


We use titanium in many of our handles, clips, and liner and frame locking materials. We value it for 3 main advantages: Strength, appearance, and light weight. When combining the full formula of those three advantages it results in what we believe is the best way to encapsulate and support our most premium folders.


Opening via the flipper

While knife is closed, hold knife firmly allowing for knife opening to be clear to open blade. Then apply pressure with your index finger on the flipper. The more pressure, the faster the blade will fully open to locked position.

Unlocking the Blade

The blade will automatically secure when fully opened by the frame lock. To unlock the frame lock, simply push the left frame in the left direction with your thumb until blade is clear. Then push blade down to close. Be sure all fingers are clear before fully closing blade.

    Wow, I finally found this knife again! I had the Absolute Folder for 3 years and then lost it. The first time I ever lost a pocket knife and I was saddened. Like most of you I had 3 or 4 EDC backups, but this is by far my favorite folder ever. Right now my EDC is a Benchmade, while I await delivery of my new Absolute, but it is not as beefy as the Absolute. I was thrilled with the coupon, so I bought 2. Great knife – for the money, what a bargain!

    I’m a die hard benchmade guy but after losing 3 $250 knives in a year I figured it was time for something cheaper. I LOVE the m390 steel which is what brought me to this knife. It is nice and light and keeps an edge very well. I’ve had it for 3 months now and I use it for daily chores such as opening boxes, cutting banding, and even trimming veneer and it has just now got to where I can’t shave with it and finally need to sharpen

    My only complaints with this knife is that it’s hard to sharpen unless you hand sharpen it as the blade angle is not stated. Secondly the handle is a little simplistic. I can’t imagine it’s the best handle for someone with big hands as it’s pretty thin and short with nothing much to it. I would like to see a thicker handle to make it easier to grip but other than that this is a wonderful blade and well worth the money!

    My Absolute arrived today. And I love it! I got a military discount,but like Jarred, this knife is well worth the full price. The finish is impeccable and weight and balance are perfect for an edc. If there is a con it would be the factory edge. Not shave your arm sharp but still a fairly decent edge that won’t take much work to get razor. I was kinda apprehensive as I had read some not so good reviews – glad I dropped the dime and ordered. Great knife!

    Got this with their awesome law enforcement discount code (thanks for that guys), but it’s worth full price. My wife calls me a pocket knife junkie, so I may have a few knives in my collection. This one is right there with a couple of my ZT knives. In fact, I would say it’s finish is even better. Absolutely love it. Only had a couple weeks, so will give more input later. So far I would say great job on this beauty. Going to get the Iconic CF next month.
    NOTE: I got the compact version first and called and switched with the larger size. I’m a bigger guy and the compact was too small for my hands. Customer service took care of me quickly.
