Another great knife designed by Warren Osborne in partnership with Benchmade, the 470-1 folder is known for its strength and reliability as an every day carry knife. Measuring a total length of 6.9 inches and weighing 2.2 ounces, the 470-1 is a great lightweight carry for every day or outdoor jobs.
The knife's 3-inch blade is made with American CPM-S30V, a powdered steel that has good corrosion-resistant properties and edge retention. The blade's composition also gives it a Rockwell Hardness of 58-60 HRC. The satin finish reduces the glare from the blade and hides scratches, and the drop-point profile with plain edge gives you more control over the blade's direction as you pierce or cut through tough materials.
The handle measures 3.9 inches long and is made of 6061-T6 black anodized aluminum, contoured to fit neatly in the palm of your hand. The aluminum handle also makes the knife feel light without losing its solid character. In addition, the Benchmade 470-1 features the AXIS Assist mechanism, which helps fire the blade into place with a spring once the user pushes the blade open to a certain point. Paired with the titanium liners, this water-resistant handle is built to last through all types of environments. The knife's handle uses a deep carry, reversible tip-up carry clip.
Overall, the Benchmade 470-1 makes a good pocket knife, whether you're taking to work or carrying it along on a camping or boating trip.
