Description

Description

This 4600 Phaeton OTF model is outfitted with a black anodized handle and a satin finished blade made from S30V steel. The Benchmade Phaeton successfully combines speed and style in a sleek tactical everyday carry automatic. It has a spine-fire sliding button that offers quick blade access when deployment time is critical. The sturdy handle is made from a billet of 6061-T6 aluminum with a black anodized finish. Subtle texturing along the top scale improves grip on the smooth handle without being abrasive. A reversible deep-carry pocket clip completes the tactical EDC design.

Features:
  • Spine-fire thumb slide opener offers quick blade deployment when draw time is critical.
  • Anodized aircraft grade aluminum handles provide a strong yet lightweight framework for the blade.
  • Stainless steel deep carry pocket clip is reversible for left or right-handed tip-down carry.

First OTF

This is my first OTF, so I have nothing to compare it to. I like the action, but the excessive up-and-down blade play means I'm never going to actually use this to cut anything. As far as three-hundred-dollar fidget toys go, it's not bad.
Best otf I own!

I like this knife better than my microtechs it has better fit and finish by far. My microtechs have always had wiggle in the button and lots of blade play (even though all otf knives have blade play) my benchmade seems better than the competition.
**new favorite**

Lightweight, very fast, some of the best metal and aluminum found on earth- wow!

What you canít see in the pics is the sound it makes when you open and close, loud and confident.

Also canít see the detail on the blade, itís covered in small ribs that cover the entire blade.

Safe: pops off track easily if itís somehow deployed by accident.

Blade wobbles? Itís suppose to, Benchmade did everything on this knife for a reason, itís still very sturdy when cutting.

No changes needed on this one guys, you nailed it!

Thank You from Dallas TX
Great OTF

The blade is slim and sharp. It does have a little wobble though, as most do. Locks up well, and works great for all my cutting needs.
Proof of excellence

First of all I want to tell you that I am in love with this magical OTF.
I am an owner of Ultratech, Troodon, HK Turmoil and a lot high and low quality OTFs . Phaeton inherited all OTF buffs. It is the best in all aspects, technically and aesthetically.
I own it and it is a best buy.
