Description
BM484: 484 | Nakamura Design
Benchmade
 
The Nakamura is a beautiful gentleman’s tactical. At under four inches closed, it is very comfortable in the pocket. M390 steel coupled with Axis lock functionality and G10 handles with stainless liners, make this a top US made folder in our book!
 
The first Nakamura AXIS brings the best of both worlds: detailed design and functional strength.

Love this blade
I use this knife in my EDC rotation. Have to say that the only things I would wish for is a different clip and for it to be a few millimeters thinner but wouldn't trade that for the excellent grip the scales provide or the full steel liners and I don't see how they could have made the knife any thinner without sacrifice of one of these or having to make the blade thinner which I wouldn't want either. I wish the clip was black or at least not polished and I wish it set the knife a smidge deeper in the pocket. Love the full 4 finger grip and the fact that the blade is as long as possible and still fit in the handle. The handles are perfect in length for a full grip for my average sized hands. The pivot is as smooth as anything I own including the IKBS ZT Hinderer and Para 2. The M390 steel sharpens up pretty easily on the Wicked Edge and holds an edge for a long time. There was no blade play in any direction and the Axis lock is secure and easy to manipulate. I know this knife isn't cheap, but it screams quality and I have no regrets dropping the cash. If I could only keep 1 folding knife this one would be on the short list for consideration. As that list includes the ZT Hinderer, Para 2, Al Mar Eagle HD ZDP, and Osborne 940 I think this is pretty high praise.
