BM4841601: 484-1601 Nakamura AXIS, KnifeCenter Exclusive
The Nakamura is a beautiful gentleman's tactical folder and one we think so highly of at the KnifeCenter, we had to bring in an exclusive of our own. At just under four inches closed, it is very comfortable in the pocket. The M390 stainless steel coupled with AXIS lock functionality and contoured stabilized wood handles with stainless liners, makes this a top US-made folder in our book! A unique tool steel, M390 is an Austrian powdered steel with a uniform micro-structure that provides superior levels of edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance, making this steel one of the most well-rounded premium steels in the world. The contoured stabilized wood handles are extremely ergonomic and the grooves lock your fingers in for a superb grip. It offers great looks with the addition of the orange barrel spacers/pivot rings and is exceptionally strong for its minimal weight. The 484-1601 Nakamura AXIS by Benchmade Knives brings the best of both worlds to the KnifeCenter: detailed design and functional strength.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
A great pocket companion!
A perfect EDC blade with the blade length not too big to spook the easily-frightened, a sculpted wood handle with orange accents to appease the visuals and the M390 steel to satisfy the steel snobs. The action is smooth, especially after applying some lube, and carries well. Definitely recommend!
