Okay so now I know I was wrong when I thought the 490 would be my EDC. This Vector is everything a knife should be. I am very happy with this purchase. If you don’t have a Vector you really need one.This knife rocks.

This is my most common every-day knife. On days where it is too big, the mini-Grip is ideal, but the mass of this blade with the quick deployment gives me comfort. My local knife shop repairs, cleans, sharpens, and fine-tunes Benchmade products. They fitted me with a deep pocket clip that makes it more comfortable and less conspicuous. Ultra durable, super smooth, and the handle feels amazing - just the right size for larger hands and a texture with grip in use but not in/out of your pocket. Really a great value for this grade of steel, G10 and size, weight, and quality.

If James Bond carries a Benchmade, this is the one. Fit and finish are excellent, as we expect from BM. The slim design, contoured hardware and semi smooth G-10 scales slip into, and out of any pocket easily without damaging material in jeans, slacks or a suit breast pocket, yet provides solid traction to grip. You could use it for an EDC at a construction site, but this is more likely going to see the inside of a pocket or briefcase more than being in constant use. The assisted flipper pushes the envelope. It is so fast and smooth that many will claim it is an automatic. Being a solid opener it is best to use two hands to close it, which I know may bother some people. There is a lock to avoid accidental openings but I would prefer it served double duty and kept it locked open when deployed, which it does not. The spear tip is very attractive and has a dagger like grind to it. Good tactical blade but it may startle non-knife people so deploy wisely in some places. The pocket clip is small and with a slim butt, so it does not appear to be a mid size knife when clipped to your pocket. I think this would appeal to a gentleman or a professional who will carry it more for tactical considerations than for pure utility. It is now my EDC, and I would not be surprised if we see it in the next James Bond movie.

I have several Benchmades, but this is my first assisted opening Benchmade. The assist works really well with the flipper opening, and I appreciate the safety. The thin blade cuts exceptionally well, and the texture on the G10 is grippy without being abrasive. I feel like this pattern on the G10 would look really great with a multi colored layered G10 like on the CLA.

I think this strong knife will last me. It exudes longevity.
