The Phaeton double-action out the front knife is one of many new knives released by Benchmade this year. Modeled after the late H&K Turmoil OTF auto model, this modified design features a side-mounted thumb slide that offers a stepped pattern for secure movement, multiple jimping locations for maximum retention in multiple grip styles and a partial coarsely textured section which further improves upon control. This Black Class model, the 4600, features a black anodized aircraft aluminum handle, a drop point style blade in a satin finish and the deep carry pocket clip is designed for tip down carry only but is eligible for a left or right hand carry option. Made in the USA.

The blade is a little shorter than the Infidel and Pagan but better steel. It's very sharp and completely concealed in my pocket. Geat knife!
