BM4841: 484-1 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.

Beautiful EDC knife
Being new to knives, I researched my options for an EDC knife quite carefully. I found the Knife Center website to be excellent, and one of the best of any type I've ever used. Mass is not one of the easiest states for this type of purchase so I was restricted regarding blade length, and had to avoid any sort of assisted opening. I was attracted to the benchmade 484-1 by the carbon fiber grip and the exotic S90V blade steel. In the hand the Nakamura is wonderfully balanced. Cliched as this may be, it really becomes an extension of your hand. I carry it at all times but have used it only lightly thus far. The blade was and is extremely sharp. Thoroughly recommended.
