BM484S1: 484S-1 Nakamura AXIS
The Nakamura is a beautiful gentleman's tactical folder. At just under four inches closed, it is very comfortable in the pocket. The CPM-S90V stainless steel coupled with AXIS lock functionality and carbon fiber handles with stainless liners, makes this a top US made folder in our book! A unique tool steel, CPM-S90V is a martensitic stainless steel to which vanadium and carbon have been added for superior wear resistance. CPM-S90V offers substantial improvements in wear resistance over 440C, D2 and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. The contoured carbon fiber handles are a contemporary, premium composite of thin strands of carbon tightly woven into various weave patterns, then set in resin, which is most commonly clear but can be color tinted. It offers great looks and is exceptionally strong for its minimal weight. The 484-1 Nakamura AXIS by Benchmade Knives brings the best of both worlds: detailed design and functional strength.

...Soon to be another Benchmade classic
This knife has been my new EDC knife for about 3 months now. Fit and finish and choice materials exhibit Benchmade's commitment to quality. Carbon fiber handles look great and add smooth but tacky feel for grip. The handles show no signs of flex .Finger grooves feel great, but probably not for large hands. Benchmade's AXIS lock is one of the best locks in the industry, IMO. The blade opens with a flick of the wrist, pulling back on the AXIS, or using the thumbstuds. Pulling back on the AXIS and with a flick of the wrist, its closed again. The blade has a great shape and slightly contoured belly with smooth but tactile thumb bolster on the spine. I use this knife daily and the blade shows no signs of wear or dulling. I'm looking forward to a larger version of the same knife. Its small size limits its use to people with small hands and medium sized tasks.
