You can now pick up the Benchmade 482 Megumi gentleman’s folder for less than $150. When it was first released, it had an MSRP of $245. As you can see, this is a great deal on a high-quality, gorgeous knife.
Benchmade tells us designer Seiichi Nakimura defines his style as, “Simple, user friendly and good looking.” The Benchmade 482 Megumi folder definitely achieved his goal. From the Cocobolo inlaid thumb stud, to the decorative metal injected molded back spacers, what really makes this knife stand out from the crowd are the beautiful details.
This small folder features a dual polished, satin finished 2.5” CPM-S30V clip point blade with a thumb stud opening mechanism. The action is smooth and easy. Once the blade is deployed, it’s held in place by the Nak-Lock mechanism. The Nak-Lock is a variation on a framelock. This tension based locking mechanism is located at the top of the frame, next to the spine. To disengage the lock, you merely press the button on the handle of the knife.
The stunning handles are elegant Cocobolo wood and carbon fiber. They are smooth, and have a fantastic feel in your hand. The Megumi has a closed length of only 3.25” and weighs only 1.85 ounces, so it is light and easy to carry.
