Benchmade 710 – Get The High End Multi Purpose Pocket Knife

The next few paragraphs offers important tips and advice that could help you successfully pick a pocket knife for your needs. Find the best pocket knife and it will serve you well for years to come.

The Benchmade 710 was designed by custom knife makers Bill McHenry and Jason Williams. It is the end product of their hard work over the course of 4 years. The popular AXIS lock makes it possible for easy one-handed opening and closing of the blade without your fingers ever being in the path of the blade. The lock was also designed by Bill and Jason. The lock design is straightforward to activate without directions needed on how the knife works.

As simple as the lock is, perhaps its major selling feature is its brute strength. In testing, the lock supported a negative load of over 200 pounds with no damage. After the lock finally failed, the liners simply cracked over the locking pin but in no way would the blade have closed on the user hand in testing.

For great functional redundancy, the AXIS lock features two Omega shaped springs. The springs are lightly stressed and tests demonstrate they should last indefinitely. Even though one spring fails, another will still operate without any problems.

It is difficult to say if this is the most durable lock made in folding knives. The manufacturer states the Benchmade 710 is more robust than any other knives on market. The sizable 3.9″ D2 Tool Steel blade of the 710 features a reverse-curve grind for better cutting ability.

On the butt end of the knife, there is a detachable stainless steel pocket clip. The butt end position of the clip is required as a result of the locking system. If the clip were positioned on the pivot end, the knife would stick out much very far out of your pocket.

The belt clip is reversible and feels natural in hand. I have the 710 Benchmade and use it for everything – cutting paper and cardboard, cutting string, heavy duty plastic box straps, cutting into the occasional snack, etc. It holds its edge very well.

Sodbuster Knives

Over 150 years ago the Sodbuster Plough was invented to plough the hard dry ground of the Great Western Plains of the USA.

Because of the dry arid conditions, the topsoil was baked into an extremely hard crust known as ‘Sod’.

Traditional iron ploughs were not strong enough, and the ‘Sodbuster Plough’ made of steel was introduced to do the job.

The 1862 Homestead Act provided 160 acres of free land to anyone willing to set up a farm in the Great Plains. The top layer of earth or Sod was so tough that it was used as building bricks by Homesteaders in the Great Plains. Other inventions around this time were, barbed wire to fence off and protect farm land, horse-drawn reapers, binders and threshers and combine harvesters.

The Sodbuster Knife is a large size, low cost, single bladed folding knife. The size has been scaled down recently and UK legal carry Sodbuster Junior knives are available.

Benchmade 710 Review

Review of the BM 710.

layna6120 asked any guys that carry a knife around?

I want to get my boyfriend a pocket knife. i just dont know what kind.
help please!!

And got the following answer:

Depends on your budget.
Best brands from more or less budget friendly category would be CRKT, Kershaw. Ok or good steel with good prices. Boker, SOG, Cold steel tend to be more expensive given the materials they use.
Best would be Spyderco, Benchmade, Microtech, Emerson, High end Kershaws etc…
Given all that, and since you’re not sure what he’d want, I’d recommend Kershaw. They’re the best bang for the buck, be it high end or low. Even top notch steels like ZDP-189 and CPM 110V knives were below 100$ from them.
Although, if your local law is ok with 4″ blades Benchmade 710 is one of the best folders out there.
BTW, California DOES NOT have 2″ limit on folders, that’s true only for automatic (switchblade) knives, not for folders. There is no legal limit on folder knife length statewide. Few cities have local laws, but not CA.

Folder reviews with photos and prices –

Quiet.Buck asked Best pocket and/or boot knife and best hatchet?

I am looking at getting some out door gear and am looking for the best there is. Not by name brand or price, but by those who touch and use and know who is the best. I want items that will last a long time, take much abuse and not fall apart. I grew up around Snap on Tools so I know the name Kershaw and consider it good. Past that I have no clue about names nor brands.

I am looking for the following:

1 folding pocket/belt holster knife (4-5″)
1 boot or shin strapped knife
1 good hatchet (so far Estwing is winning)

Please share your experiences with these items and which you found to be the best among the best.

And got the following answer:

For the folder, Benchmade 710 would be my #1 recommendation, good steel, 154CM or D2 whichever fits better your purpose, or M2 if you want to pay extra. Plus it has the axis lock, which IMHO is still the best lock in the industry.

Several SOGs are pretty good.
New Kershaw shallot in CPM-110V steel is also pretty good knife, although 58-61HRC for that steel is a bit soft.
Strider makes very tough use folders, but prices are pretty high.
Chris Reeve Sebenza is also a good, but really expensive folder.
A few dozen folder reviews I’ve used –

Not much experience with purely boot knives though. But for common outdoor use, I think fixed blade on your belt is more preferable, that’s my suggestion anyway, reviews here –

As for the hatchet, you should check this one out –
It’s a small hatchet, but also doubles as an ulu knife. As far as its toughness and cutting abilities go, both are superb. I use mine all the time, including kitchen.

One more interesting variation is kukri if you want to consider. Those will chop better than many hatchets and work as knives (which is what they’re primarily) –

Hope that helps ๐Ÿ˜‰

Amber asked What kind of knife should I get?

My boyfriend is really into knives and such, and for his graduation present I’d like to get him one with his name engraved in it. I don’t know much about knives so I was wondering what type to get him. I would prefer something he can carry.

My limit is $150


And got the following answer:

Knives are the oldest tools in human history and all the knife detractors here, own at least one kitchen knife or more. Still, they come out with whacky statements.

Anyway, for one, I suggest you buy on the internet, because it will be cheaper compared to brick and mortar stores.

Second, switchblades are not illegal in all US states, but are in some. So, unless you know local law it’s better to stay with plain folding knives.

Speedsafe knives can be also an issue. I know in California they are legal, but not so sure about the other states, at least I don’t know where they are illegal.

And blade length can be an issue too. Various states and even local towns can have their own restrictions on the length. So, 3″ 3.5″ long blade would be most likely legal in most of the places. Although I know San Francisco, LA, Oakland have 3″ blade length limit.

As for the particular brands, I can recommend Kershaw, Benchmade, and Spyderco. Very solid knives, good reputation and service from the makers.

For your budget you can get a very good folding knife.
Here’s bunch of folder reviews with photos and details –

I personally prefer Benchmades and Kershaws, good steel, good fit and finish. Spydercos look too weird to my taste, but they have their own dedicated fan base.

E.g. Benchmade 710 would be a very nice present. Axis lock, D2 or 154Cm steel, it’s a knife that is perfect for pocket carry. Except it’s 4″ long blade,so might be restricted in some areas. Price around 125$

Kershaw Shallots are very good knives. Come in different steels too. Models with top end steels like ZDP0189 and CPM-110V are ~80$ and more conventional, but still a good steel like Sandvik are ~50$. Those have 3.5″ long blades.

Benchmade 707 is just under 3″ and makes a very nice utility knife –

Knife steel FAQ –

If you know what kind of folders( I mean looks) he likes, you’re settled, otherwise pick something you like, it’s your present after all.

Some of the places where to buy on the net –

P.S. To the knifophobic crowd – majority of knife related crime is committed with kitchen knives, not with the folders people carry or expensive collectibles, and in stabbing wounds those kitchen knives are followed by screwdrivers. So, what now, you are going to dump all your kitchen knives along with the screwdrivers or ask your senator to ban both?

Austin asked Whats a good pocket knife?

I want to get a new everday knife and one that I can use on duty too, I want to have a decent sized blade that is easy to open but not spring assisted but thats ok if it is. I just want a nice sturdy knife that can be used for everday tasks. Can you help point me in the right direction? Thanks

And got the following answer:

If you had specified the budget it’d be easier to help with answer.

Anyway, Benchmade, Kershaw and Spyderco would be on top of my folding knives list. I’ve had over 100 different folders in my knife collection and they’;re really good. Even if I never liked Spyderco, because it looks too weird to me, it’s still an excellent knife.

If you are on the budget, then I’d recommend Kershaw, For the price/performance they’re very hard to beat. Modern steels, very good fit and finish and extremely good prices for what they are.

Otherwise Benchmade 710 axis lock is pretty much perfect fir for your requirements, so is Griptilian and Rukus.
