Description: The Benchmade 490 Amicus is the first knife to include both the Axis-Assist and a flipper. Finally you can have the best of both worlds bundled into a slimline package!
The drop point blade is made from premium CPM-S90V with a satin finish and a swedge. CPM-S90V is a excellent high-end, American-made, powdered metallurgical steel with a uniform micro-structure. The high carbon content combines with vanadium to form vanadium carbides, providing incredible wear resistance while leaving the chromium free to provide a high level of corrosion resistance.
The Benchmade patented AXIS-Assist mechanism deploys the blade with ease using the ambidextrous flipper. The flipper tab barely protrudes, keeping this one of the slimmest flippers available on the market. A front mounted integrated safety allows the knife to be locked open or closed. The safety can also be operated with a single hand.
The lightweight aluminum handle is black anodized and offers a perfect blend of ergonomics and style. The handle is smooth and offers no resistance when drawing it from a pocket. The rear of the handle has been tapped so a lanyard can be added. Includes a reversible pocket clip that is mounted for tip-up carry.
