I have been collecting knives now for over 3 decades and have many brands such as spyderco, CRKT, Kbar, Tops, Emerson, Ontario, Gerber, ZeroTolerance, several others and I am at 12 benchmade knives. The 810 has been my go to folder for almost 2 years now... liked it so much I also picked up the fixed blade contego which is one of my favorite fixed blades. Although I had to make a plasitic "washer" for the tension adjust screw on the sheath to prevent it from marring the blade. (C'mon Benchmade you can add one!)

Once the 810 breaks in it is so buttery smooth to open there is nothing like it. The blade weight and balance as it swings into lock is just superb.

Over time I have grown to love the unsprung tension and lack of assist that allow the blade to swing both open then closed again one handed by simply use of the axis lock lever... just like on my 915 Triage only smoother due to the blade weight. So smooth it feels like there are bearing washers even though I'm pretty sure they just use spacers.

CAUTION: THIS KNIFE DOES HAVE AN AGGRESIVE FEEL IN HAND DUE TO ALL THE MILLING ON THE G10 HANDLES...this is one of my personal favorite features, it feels like it grips itself into your hand; if you are ok with this then this knife is hard to beat. I dont know what the other review is even talking about with blade play... THIS IS A BENCHMADE... they have some of the best manufacturing and quality control on the markert, none of the 12 Benchmade knifes I own have had ANY issues... I wouldn't keep buying them if they did. I have never been disappointed with any of their knives (always razor sharp and worth more than they ask for them in my opinion) and hope to add more in the future.

Side note: I wanted to buy a knife for my Father-in-law to show how much he is appreciated and was so happy to present him with an 810 Contego... my favorite folder, and hopefully now his favorite too!
Worst folder

It has many problems:gritty, blade play, blade centering, and axis bar moves left to right. The bottom line is Benchmade sucks. The worst $180 I ever spent.

I've EDC'd in and out of my rotation of knives for 3 years now and it never fails me. CPM-M4 is amazing it holds a great edge, its flexible, but it can rust where it is not coated. Also, it can take a while to get a The jimping is moderately aggressive, it feels very natural in the forward and reverse grip. The coating on the blade can chip and wear overtime, but that's to be expected. I like this knife so much I gave my first one to my GF ( she uses it for EDC and self-defense (carbide tip can also be used as attitude adjuster =] ) and bought myself another one.
