5.0 out of 5 stars Great knife for EDC..... AND keeping the wife happy :)
By Dillon on September 23, 2016
I recently moved to a new house on land, and found myself consistently in a situation in which I believed a knife would benefit me. When I was single I was always very big on brand name, and would choose made in America products over foreign made products. However, now that I am married and have two children I have to worry about what someone else may think. The price of this knife seems high to the average customer, but there are many other things that you need to think about when buying: Metal grade (for strength, corrosion resistance, and sharpness), how long you plan on keeping it, and the knowledge that this may be something you carry with you all the time and you MUST rely on the quality.

To the review!

This knife is made with 154CM steel. For those who dont know what this means it is a very high carbon stainless steel with some molybdenum. This particular steel provides for better edge retention so you dont have to sharpen your knife as much after normal use. After about 2 months of use I have realized that I should have been carrying a knife around a lot earlier! This thing is AMAZING. Whether I am opening another Amazon package, cutting open a letter in the mail, or cutting weed whacker twine, and sharpening a stick this powers through the roughest of tasks. When I first opened the great packaging and took this out of the sleeve it comes in I was a little unnerved about how rough the thumb button was for closing. Actually I opened and closed the knife about a thousand times hoping this was a wear issue, but when I got home I applied a decent amount of WD40 and realized that there must have been some grease locked in the mechanism for packaging. I was also a little disheartened by the pocket clip, and how high the knife sits in your pocket. After some research I discovered that the screw pattern for the clip matches the Benchmade Presidio (which sits deeper because of the way the clip curves), and Benchmade's GREAT customer service team sent me not one, but TWO of the clips FREE OF CHARGE!!!

Couldn't be happier with my first EDC knife purchase and now I am considering going up to the 940!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good knife, but was a little damaged
By ZARAN on September 16, 2017
I was really excited to receive this knife from all of the good things I've heard. Overall, it's a great knife and the quality is good. I did however receive the knife with a few visible signs of damage.
It looks like the knife was dropped one or twice with noticeable dents in the grip. I doubt benchmade would resell a used knife but it looks a bit odd.
Usually I'm not this critical but with the price tag I'm really expecting a mint condition knife.
