มีดพับ Benchmade Gold Class Valet Damasteel Blade, Blue-Violet Anodized Titanium Handles (485-171)
The Valet is reborn as a work of art in this exclusive, titanium Gold Class knife. The Valet is a medium size folder and a great choice for everyday carry. It features a 2.96" Ladder Damasteel blade and blue-violet contoured titanium handles. Solid AXIS lock lockup and a reversible deep-pocket carry clip. The 485 Valet is just a great overall choice for anyone looking for a quality knife with premium materials and quality craftsmanship.
The AXIS Lock mechanism is a patented Benchmade exclusive and has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100-percent ambidextrous design, AXIS gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners, and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped, tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself.
