Description: The Benchmade Vector (495) is a new AXIS-Assist flipper knife with an integrated safety and deep carry pocket clip for secure everyday carry. The spear point ground blade and ergonomic handle make for a very handsome knife.
The spear point blade is made from satin finished CPM-S30V stainless steel. CPM-S30V is an American-made and developed premium grade stainless steel created especially for knives. It is a powdered metallurgical steel with a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties. This gives the blade superior corrosion resistance, toughness, and edge retention.
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 the user with ultra-quick opening action. The blade is ground thin for high performance slicing and a matching swedge adds to its good looks.
The ergonomic handle features textured and contoured black G10 scales 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.
