The super slicey blade geometry makes for a great EDC workhorse with a smooth black aluminium handle that provides great grip with a refined finish. The assist action gives a fast deployment action and coupled with the AXIS lock it is a true ambidextrous knife. The S90V upgrade steel, this might be our favorite steel of all time for excellent edge retention. The Arcane also features deep carry clip and you have a knife you'll be happy to slip in your pocket every day.
AXIS Assist... with a flipper. It's the best of everything in a slim, lightweight, every day carry. Easily operated and carried on either side, the speed and function of AXIS Assist, the convenience of a flipper. The 490 Arcane flipper features a 3.2" CPM-S90V satin finish blade with aluminum handles. CPM-S90V is a excellent high-end, premium American-made powdered steel with a uniform micro-structure that provides substantial improvements over other American-made steel in wear and corrosion resistance.
Easily opened, quickly and with one hand; this evolution of the AXIS includes a spring that helps to fire the blade into the open position once the user pushes it beyond a certain point manually. The AXIS lock also has the added benefit of "suck-back," which encourages the blade to stay in the closed position. AXIS Assist knives also feature integrated safety lock systems.
