Megumi folding knife.
The Benchmade 482
Megumi has custom knife

Some of the custom features of the 482 Megumi include the button locking mechanism, and the lanyard bale on the handle as well as the decorative back spacer. The handle of the knife is also a nice, custom feature and is designed with machined carbon fiber and high-end cocobolo.
The blade of the knife measures 2.4" inches in length, and is flat ground made from stainless S30V steel and hardened to 58-60 HRC for easy cutting with excellent edge retention.
