Benchmade has dressed the Emissary Knife up with all of the top-end features imaginable – and this gentleman's version will only be made this way for one year. This 2013, limited-edition 470-131 Emissary model boasts a drop-point blade made of authentic Damascus steel. This specially forged, layered steel made up of a variety of steels, offers remarkable toughness and edge retention. The surface layers are exposed through an acid etch, which creates an impressive and unique effect. Benchmade's own Axis®-assist locking mechanism delivers the smoothest deployment possible. To make an even stronger impression, the handle is made of machined and anodized black billet 7075 aluminum with engraved ivory Micarta inlays. Ambidextrous thumb stud. Reversible, tip-up pocket clip. Blade length: 3". Overall length: 6.9". Closed length: 3.9". Weight: 2.2 oz.
