When it comes to making high-quality knives for EDC, Benchmade gets top billing. But if an assisted flipper is more your style, their offerings have been a bit limited. That all changes with the introduction of the 495 Vector. The Vector is Benchmade's finest take on the assisted flipper knife thus far. It has an aggressive and efficient tactical design with premium materials to ensure it can cut as sharp as it looks.

The centerpiece of this knife is its razor sharp 3.6" spear point blade. It's made out of premium CPM-S30V steel for high hardness and edge retention. Because this is an assisted-opening flipper knife, you can bring it to bear in an instant, even with one hand. And for added safety, the Vector also includes an integrated lock on the spine that keeps the knife closed when it's not in use.

The handle features an aggressive tactical design that conforms to your hand. Its shape gives you significant purchase on the blade and maximum control over the cut. It also helps prevent against cutting yourself on your own knife during hard use. The sides of the handle have grippy G10 scales etched in a diamond pattern to make them more effective. It also features Benchmade's super-strong AXIS-lock mechanism, which keeps the knife open with minimal blade play.

The 495 Vector is a welcome addition to Benchmade's venerable line of excellent everyday carry knives. And it's especially good for those who prefer carrying assisted flipper knives. If you're overlooked Benchmade in the past for their lack of offerings in that space, take note: the 495 Vector is not to be ignored. Take a look at it yourself and grab one for your own at the link below.

Great EDC! A carbon fiber aluminum wallet is so great!

LMAO A flipper with assisted opening? Why, when a flipper or thumbstud or Spyderhole are already lighting fast?
