Handle features include the gray G-10 contoured scales, stainless steel liners, and a spacer of gray G-10 with gimping. The handle had a deep carry pocket clip that allows the knife to sit low in the pocket.

5 Scrub Poxkets, April 25, 2021Benchmade 485 Valet - Axis Lock with M390 Steel
Posted By: Steely Ballow

Great non menacing knife to carry to work in the hospital in my scrubs. It opens with the flick of a thumb nail and has a very classy look to it. The materials and fit and finish are top notch! It shreds everything it touches. I made a great choice with this one. I rotate it with two Leeks. I definitely use it more than the Leeks now.
