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 Amicus 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.
Flipper -May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
Single-position - The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
