The word "saibu" in Japanese means "details" and it is only fitting that the details are what make the Benchmade 486 Saibu the American-made knife that looks like a work of art, but functions as an extremely capable EDC. The product of a collaboration with Japanese knifemaker Seiichi Nakamura, the most striking detail of the 486 Saibu has to be the fusion of black G-10 3D sculpted composite, combined with stabilized Cocobolo wood inlays. The open design gives the 486 Saibu an almost skeletal look, worthy of a showroom case, but with the materials and craftsmanship that make it a contender for your favorite everyday carry blade.

The drop point style blade of the 486 Saibu is made from 2.98" of CPM-20CV stainless steel with a 59-61 HRC. This means that it has the strength of tool steel, yet the malleability to keep and hold a razor sharp edge and resists corrosion like crazy. The blade is .114" thick but is high-ground down to a razor sharp edge, designed for heavy use in applications such as chopping and finer detail work as well. The satin finish is excellent for hiding mars and shedding water to give it even more protection against corrosion.

With an overall length of 6.79", the 486 Saibu folds nicely into a 3.82" black G-10 handle which has been 3D sculpted to catch the eye and give this knife depth and dimension, as well as cut down on the overall carry weight. A custom bamboo style metal backspacer adds more detail to this devil of a folder and the AXIS lock mechanism keeps the blade set in place and not going anywhere, once you deploy it with the help of wood accented thumb studs. The mini deep carry clip is also reversible for right or left hand, tip-up carry in your pocket or on your belt. At .48" thick, you might even forget the 486 Saibu is in your pocket.
