The all new Gold Class 485-171 Valet folder combines form and function to create a piece of art the way only Benchmade can. The blade and backspacer are both made from Ladder pattern Damasteel giving this knife a truly eye-catching look. Anodized titanium handle scales are blue-violet in color and offer a more subtle visual appeal making the 485-171 Valet a sophisticated, gentleman's folder. ***This XXXX piece Limited Run was crafted by hand with pride in the USA.***
The Blade: The etched Damasteel blade is made in an arresting Ladder Pattern and finished in a razor sharp edge. Each knife is individually numbered on the back of the blade. A matching piece of Damasteel with textured jimping is used for the backspacer as well. The blade opens smoothly via dual anodized titanium thumb studs with solid lock up provided by the patented Axis Lock mechanism.
The Handle: The handles are made from 3D machined billet titanium that has been anodized a rich blue-violet color. These are attached via Torx screws to DLC Coated stainless steel liners for a rock-solid construction. The knife carries via an ambidextrous, DLC Coated, deep carry stainless steel pocket clip set up for tip-up carry.
The 485-171 Gold Class Valet is a timeless piece of functional art that blurs the line between visual expression and functional design. Each knife includes a presentation box, Gold Class microfiber bag and Certificate of Authenticity.
