Benchmade 484-1 Nakamura Knife Review


The Benchmade 484 Model was the first Nakamura design to feature the solid Axis locking mechanism that is now employed in a variety of Benchmade models. Benchmade decided to upgrade this design with carbon fiber handle scales and a bright blue anodized pivot ring. The modified drop point blade has been upgraded to premium S90V super stainless steel and given a satin/tumbled finish. Contoured carbon fiber handle scales rest over full stainless steel liners attached via torx screw construction. Dual thumb stud openers and a reversible tip-up clip for a true ambidextrous carry.   As with all Benchmades, the Nakamura is proudly made in the USA.
