Benchmade 483 Shori by Seiichi Nakamura

Benchmade 483 Shori by Seiichi Nakamura

New for 2012 in Benchmade’s Blue Class is the 483 Shori designed by Seiichi Nakamura. This joins his overwhelmingly popular 480 Shoki design, 2008 IWA Knife of the Year, and the 482 Megumi as some of the most elegant gentleman’s folders produced by Benchmade. Excellent size, weight and materials are the heart of the knife, but the ergonomics are it’s soul. For a small knife without any jimping, the knife locks into place very well with minimal fear about your fingers sliding forward onto the blade. The other aspect that sets the Nakamura series of knives apart is their use of the Nak-Lok, which acts like a cross between a lockback and frame lock but has a button you push to actuate. This design allows for ultimate strength in both the upward and downward direction of the blade and keeps your fingers clear from danger when closing the knife. The Shori is an excellent knife and you can find it at www.knifecenter.com.

Benchmade Gold Class 940-121 Osborne AXIS Folder

Benchmade Gold Class 940-121 Osborne AXIS Folder

The model 940 from Benchmade could very well be the perfect EDC knife. I honestly can’t find a single negative thing to say about it. The materials, craftsmanship, ergonomics, and attention to detail are all absolutely superior. Take all this and multiply it ten-fold for 2012, introducing the Gold Class model 940-121 by Benchmade. This knife, already near perfect, gets a true overhaul sparing no expense by using the best premium materials available on the market. The CPM-M4 super steel blade is finished in a clear protective coat called Cerakote and paired with the green titanium handle and carbon fiber bolsters, it creates a very pleasing look. If you’ve ever handled any of the 940-943 series of knives, you’ll know I saved the best part of it for last; the size. For a blade just a hair under 3.5″ and weighing in at only 3.2 oz., this knife absolutely disappears in your pocket. When closed, the knife is only 1-1/8″ wide at it’s largest point so you can slip your hand, phone, keys, or another knife into your pocket without obstruction. Gold Class knives are truly custom level production blades, see for yourself at www.knifecenter.com.
