The Benchmade 485 Valet is a slim, lightweight executive style knife designed for pocket carry in business or casual environments. The 2.96" blade is satin polished and made of M390 Super Steel, with a drop point that matches the sleek lines of the handle. The blade opens with dual thumbstudes and the knife is completely ambidextrous thanks to the AXIS lock and a reversible, tip up, deep carry pocket clip.

About the AXIS lock: A patented Benchmade exclusive, AXIS® has been turning heads and winning fans ever since its introduction. A 100 percent ambidextrous design, AXIS® gets its function from a small, hardened steel bar that rides forward and back in a slot machined into both steel liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife, spans the liners and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega-style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang. As a result, the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS® bar itself. Available in manual, AXIS® Assist or Auto AXIS® configurations.
