Description: The Benchmade Vector (496) is a new AXIS-Assist flipper knife with an integrated safety and deep carry pocket clip for secure everyday carry. The spear point compound grind blade and ergonomic handle make for a very handsome knife. We currently have first production #36 out of 1200.
The spear point blade is made from premium American-made Crucible CPM-20CV stainless steel. CPM-20CV is a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptionally good wear resistance. CPM-20CV contains the highest amount of chromium of any high vanadium stainless steel currently available. This results in superior corrosion resistance while maintaining a high wear resistance. The blade is ground thin for high performance slicing and a matching swedge adds to its good looks.
A flipper tab and the patented AXIS-Assist lock make ambidextrous one-handed opening a breeze. Once initial pressure is put on the flipper, the AXIS-Assist mechanism effortlessly takes over. A spring assists with ultra-quick opening action.
The ergonomic handle features contoured green G10 scales fit to stainless steel bolsters providing a secure grip. Barrel spacers keep the knife light for its size. A reversible deep carry pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
