The Benchmade 490 Arcane series of knives are an assisted flipper design that has some seriously upgraded features. What I really like about the knife is that the flipper tab is very slim and discreet. The flipper tab barely rises above the spine and a gentle sweep of the finger and he assisted mechanism deploys the knife. The steel is CPM-S90V for some serious sharpness and edge retention. Aluminum handles keep this knife light in the pocket and the deep carry clip ensures it is easy to carry.
This knife is sure to be a solid winner and a must have.
