Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Elegant EDC 1st the knife, 2nd why I bought this knife, which is the best in my small EDC collection. A STELLAR KNIFE: This model is now called the "490 Arcane" - no longer the "Amicus." It's simply a thin-in-the-pocket, elegant and classy EDC for any setting: office, trades: wherever. It's best feature is the blade: CPM-S90V: super-sharp and holds its edge. But equally important is the flipper button and how it works so smoothly. Lots of flippers have a large or pointy flipper, which can snag on other items in your pocket, or just feel rough. Not the case here. This website has no picture of the closed knife, but the button is very small, yet it works very smoothly and easily. Also it has a deep pocket clip that comes right up to the top of the knife, so not much sticks out of your pocket. The 490 is what turned me from a "sometimes carry" to "every day carry." WHY I BOUGHT:: For some reason Benchmade has not publicized this, which is amazing because it's such a nice knife. It's an heirloom knife I can definitely see eventually passing down to my son. But let's face it - some knives are expensive - and the list price on various websites is between $220 - $250. BUT GANDER OUTDOOR'S PRICE IS $152!!! It's a great knife but it's also a super-bargain.
