Harkening back to the heritage of its designer, the Benchmade 486-201 Gold Class Saibu combines the artistry of Seiichi Nakamura. Inspired by the ornate temple shrines of Japan, the 486-201 marries an ivory G-10 handle with crimson G-10 inlays, assembled around a Rose Damasteel blade. 24-karat gold-plated hardware accentuates this homage to Japanese tradition.

The Benchmade Gold Class bridges the gap between custom and manufactured; reaching perfection with one-of-a-kind tools that are crafted for the collector’s wish list and true connoisseur of the “finer things” in life. Highly customized designs, exotic materials, exclusive mechanisms, limited production, and handcrafted detail are merely suggestions to the possibilities. Erasing the lines between custom and manufactured, it is a matter of satisfying the ultimate desire. Whether it is embellishing existing designs to loftier heights, creating entirely new ones, or even crafting a one of a kind experience from a collector’s wish list, the Gold class clearly sets the new standard of knife manufacturing. Includes the original box and papers.  S/N 199.  Excellent Condition.
