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.

My wife purchased this for me as a belated Father's Day gift and it arrived today (awesome shipping by KnifeCenter). Even though I knew this was a small knife, I was still a little surprised when I opened the box. My surprise in its smallness was quickly replaced by my shock in its fit and finish. The word scales are stunningly beautiful. Even though the handle is small, it's shockingly comfortable to my medium sized hands. I think this knife might be more comfortable than my BM 551-1304. The orange pillars and pivot collar match the scales beautifully. The blade came centered but a bit tight. Made some micro adjustments to the pivot and it's now perfect. I couldn't be happier with this new blade. I haven't even used it yet and I think this is going to be my new favorite EDC. Incredible job Benchmade! And great customer service KnifeCenter. You just won a new customer.

Asked Knife Centre to check for blade centering.
The knife is beautiful but both the Knife Centre and Benchmade breached my trust. I had only ONE condition w my purchase and that was they look at the knife for blade centering, before shipping. They did not and consequently I spend +200 on a seriously off centre knife. I will be returning it. Benchmade is also at fault for allowing this to go to market.
