The Benchmade 477S Emissary is the second folder to feature the AXIS assist locking mechanism, after the Barrage. The spring assisted action of this slim, lightweight folder makes it a great EDC and tactical choice for anybody. The blade rockets out, and locks up tightly, each and every time you actuate the ambidextrous thumb studs. The handles are CNC machined from a billet of high strength aluminum alloy, giving the knife strength without adding weight. All in all this is a great pocketknife for anyone, especially Benchmade fans. It reminds us a lot of the 940m which is definitely on a short list of best folding knives ever made.
