Benchmade super premium stainless 485 Valet Axis Thumb Stud Folding Knife - BM-485
Benchmade super premium stainless 485 Valet Axis Thumb Stud Folding Knife - BM-485 Featuring M390 super premium stainless steel the 485 Valet by Benchmade is a medium size folder and a great choice for an everyday carry. The patented AXIS lock mechanism is 100% ambidextrous and makes opening and closing the knife a breeze.The Valet has an overall length of 6.69â€³ a 2.96â€³ blade and it weighs 2.18 ounces. The knife compares favorably to the Benchmade Mini Griptilian although itâ€™s much sleeker. The low profile handle and spear point blade were innately appealing. This is a slim every day carry (EDC) piece that easily doubles as a gentlemanâ€™s folder with a more modern flair.The Valetâ€™s packs plenty of cutting edge a high flat grind and a sturdy tip all into a sub 3â€³ blade. The blade is ground thin and it almost cuts like classic slip joint (not a bad thing). I had no trouble zipping through boxes bags and all the little stuff that comes across my path. Everything from sliding between the folds of an envelope free a cable bill to de-boning chicken thighs for a stir fry.
