Perfect fit and finish. The blade's bottom comes pre-burnished so the axis lock works smoothly out of the box. Not a single sharp corner in the handle, or the blade's spine. The nicest scales this side of custom.
It is a perfectly finished Benchmade. 10/10 I love it.
And life is great mechanically. It feels good in the hand and it’s just what I needed. However the knife wasn’t very sharp. I can’t even shave arm here with it. Of course that can be remedied with time and patience. My main point of disappointment is cosmetic. The picture on this website shows double rows of blue. Mine has only a single row on each side on the inside edge. I know the website says that they can’t pick out knives based on color and that the amount of blue and black may vary but mine only has 1/2 of the blue that the picture does.
I love mine so much I ordered another, the one with the Black and Grey Scales. This is the best Benchmade Folder; that is if you like serious, purpose-built, Folders. For me, it's a perfect size, legally and physically. Mine arrived flawless. S/H was fast. Thank you www.knifeworks.com for such a sweet Benchmade 810.
I had the original 810...never really liked the coated blade. The glass breaker keep scratching my hand and the handle was a bit rough without gloves. The Knife Works 810 looks awesome! Much more comfortable to handle and I don't have to worry about rust nearly as much. Now I'm going to have to try there version of the 940.

My 1st benchmade . Didn't see any of the reported QC issues. Great if you have bigger hands. Had to bend pocket clip as it did not actually clip, definitely not a real issue though. Came very sharp with no blade play or centering issues. Great knife.
This was my second Contego with the m390 steel (that says a lot in it's own right)!! Both were absolutely perfect with regards to fit and finish!!! This is my preferred steel in a folder and Knifeworks and Benchmade did it right! Came razor, razor sharp and fast shipping! I ordered engraving and Knifeworks preformed an awesome job with the letters! I could not have asked for more from Benchmade and Knifeworks! This is my new EDC and will be replacing my other Knifeworks exclusive Contego! Very smooth (like butter) opening and rock solid lockup!! Please keep up the great work! Y'all (Knifeworks) and Benchmade make a great team and one I'm proud to rely on daily!!!!!
