When you see that butterfly logo on a blade, you already have an idea of what you are handling. Benchmade Knives have been around for decades. The 496 is an EDC-size flipper with a recurve blade shape and a bolstered handle of G-10 all of these features come together to make a formitable American-made folding knife

At an overall length of 8.42" this knife features a 3.6" long CPM-20CV stainless steel blade with a corrosion-resistant satin finish which makes it hard for moisture to adhere to the metal. The drop-point compound grind design and .1" thickness of the blade stock allow for a functional thickness, which is a great profile for slicing cuts without sacrificing the strength of the steel. The swedge tip is excellent for punctures and penetrating cuts, and the flat ground tip gives the blade versatility and strength while the hollow ground main blade provides for excellent slicing ability. It's like having three blade types with different purposes all in one knife. The Rockwell hardness of 59-61 ensures you will be getting the benefits of a tough steel which is going to hold a razor-sharp edge cut after cut.

The blade deploys with the help of a flipper assist and locks into place, open or closed, with the patented AXIS integrated safety system. The blade fits snugly into the 4.82" handle, which incorporates stainless steel liners, a grey aluminum bolster, and corrosion-resistant anodized spacers with smooth milled G10 scales. At .60" thick, the handle is hefty, yet provides a slim enough profile for EDC. The black oxide deep carry pocket clip holds your knife in the tip-up position until you need it. The clip also fits nicely in your hand while in use. Completely MOLLE compatible for tactical carry, the 496 Vector Folding knife also features a lanyard hole for carrying options and tactical applications with the use of paracord. At 4.5oz, you might not even notice you are carrying this around all day.
