Benchmade
 
AXIS Assist... with a flipper. It's the best of everything in a slim, lightweight, every day carry. Easily operated and carried on either side, the speed and function of AXIS Assist, the convenience of a flipper. The 490 Arcane flipper features a 3.2" CPM-S90V satin finish blade with aluminum handles. CPM-S90V is a excellent high-end, premium American-made powdered steel with a uniform micro-structure that provides substantial improvements over other American-made steel in wear and corrosion resistance.

AXIS Assist

Easily opened, quickly and with one hand; this evolution of the AXIS includes a spring that helps to fire the blade into the open position once the user pushes it beyond a certain point manually. The AXIS lock also has the added benefit of "suck-back," which encourages the blade to stay in the closed position. AXIS Assist knives also feature integrated safety lock systems.
