Benchmade's Arcane 490 is the first AXIS-Assist knife to utilize a flipper opener! Designed with everyday carry comfort in mind, it has a thin, lightweight 7075-T6 aluminum handle with a deep carry, reversible pocket clip. For an added measure of protection, Benchmade has included a front-mounted safety lock. Adding even more draw to the Arcane knife, is the super premium CPM-S90V stainless steel blade.
The Arcane 490S has a satin finished blade with a partially serrated cutting edge.
