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.

History of Knives By Rajkumar Jonnala on February 27, 2010 0

Knives as Tools

Knives have always been an extremely useful tool to have. They are probably one of the only tools that we use daily that were used by our distant ancestors. The Bronze Age brought about the first significant change to knives, though since its softer structure didn’t make the strongest of knives, many still preferred the “older” stone tool. Stone blades and knives really remained the preferred material up until bronze was replaced with iron which was considerably stronger than bronze.

First Improvements

Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations are credited with the first folding knives as well as knives with ivory blades. It’s believed that this was a result of the popularity of cut fruits – ivory blades prevented the transfer of the taste of rust (or metal).

Manufacturing Knives

Between 1095 and 1272 there were a number of Crusades launched by the Europeans. During this time they traveled to all corners of the earth fighting for ground and more. Like so many other conflicts, this created an opportunity. France began its manufacturing of cutlery offering blades of various sizes and shapes and in a variety of materials. France had a corner on the cutlery market (including knives) until about 1789 and even today, you’ll find several cutlery manufacturers still in France.

The “Pocket” Knife

Today’s pocket knife is believed to be started sometime during the 15th Century – again out of necessity. Remember, knives were the main tool at that time, there was no cutlery, as we know it today – people ate their meals with the blades of their knife. This is when it is believed that multiple-blade knives made their first appearance and most likely resulting in more folding knives.

Material Improvements

While most early knives were created from carbon steel (or iron), today’s blades are made of surgical steel, carbon steel or from martensitic stainless steel. What has not changed much is the overall design of knives.

Nearly all collectible knives and Scout knives are created from carbon steel. The reason behind this is believed to be that while this knife can oxidize easily, it’s less expensive to manufacture, it’s very easy to sharpen and once sharpened it has a great edge.

Useful Knives

It seems like today you can find a knife for any purpose including fighting, multi-purpose knives, hunting knives and more. This development really came about during the 19th Century, material was readily available and more people were adept at creating knives. Whether you are looking for a simple purpose knife or a collectible folding knife, today you will have no trouble locating them. Whether your tastes run to plain handles or intricately designed handles, there is a knife available to suit your basic needs, or your desire to collect a piece that displays exquisite workmanship.


Today pocket knives are available for a fraction of the cost of what they used to be. You’ll find people from early teens to older adults, men and women sporting a pocket knife. Because of the impeccable record keeping that began around 1900, collectors have an easier time valuing and dating previously created knives, and particularly those rare hand-crafted ones. Knives are often used for wedding gifts, promotional items and more.

Ray J asked this sucks, i got sold a loose butterfly knife how do i get it tightened?

it wont let me tighten the little pins… this sucks, it was in the package for 20$ and i opened it and its looose, not brand new… i just need it tightened but theres no screw kinda pins… there round looking its the

And got the following answer:

You bought a $200.00 balisong (on sale now for $175.99) for $20.00 and it is loose. Well, it should be loose. Not to the point that the blade wiggles or wobbles, but loose enough to easily open without hanging up. You can tighten the pins by using a hammer and a pin-set and lightly tapping the tip of the pin. Don’t use too heavy a hit or you will ruin your knife. If you don’t want to be bothered with doing that you could always ship it to me. I’ll give you your $20.00 back!

Here is a link to the knife; maybe they have some additional information on it:

Good luck and enjoy!

And got the following answer:

I have a New in Box Plain edge Spring Latch Benchmade 42, I will sell it for $415.00 shipped as it is my last one

Alyssa asked good price range for a butterfly knife?

alright, so im trying to sell my butterfly knife. its in very good condition. its blue with black on it. very sharp. i only had it for about 3 months. (or less) does anyone know a good price i should sell it for?

And got the following answer:

What is the manufacturer and model? Where was it made? How much did you originally pay for it?

Butterfly knives can range in price from $5 to $30 for a cheap Chinese-made knife that you can find on to $50 to $200 for a good Benchmade or other namebrand knife. You can even find some handmade knives shipped from Indonesia for about $50 to $150. If you are interested in these, I’ll post a link to the guys facebook and another guys tumblr when I get off my work computer. They both will sit and talk with you about what you want and what they have. If they don’t have it, then they will make a knife for you. Both also do Karambits and other Indonesian/Phillipino weapons.

Either way, whatever percentage of quality is still in the knife, take that percentage of the amount it goes for on the internet. If you don’t have that information, take the percentage of what you paid for. If you didn’t buy it, then post a picture on photobucket and leave a link in additional details. The cheap imports are pretty easy to spot when you know what you are looking for.

As far as what the other answer said about nobody wanting used knives, he is somewhat right. Nobody wants a cheap Chinese knife that’s been used and abused. If it only cost $40 originally and you beat it up over the years, then it’s worth putting in your drawer. At that point, you got the most out of your knife and it’s time for it’s retirement. Your knife although, sounds like it’s still in good condition and even if you can’t sell it to a shop, it’s still worth some value in a private sale or trade.

As far as people buying butterflys just for some tactical aspect, while people do purchase these knives for tactical reasons, that is not most commonly why. Most people buy butterflys because of the cool factor. It’s real and it sells. There is also a world of freestyle balisong artists who love to twirl butterfly knives in their spare time. These knives are still in circulation. If anything, butterfly knives are hot commodities in private sales. Ask friends and family if they would like to buy your knife. A lot of times they won’t know too much about knives, but they know your knife is cool and you are giving them a more than fair price.

Post some pics of your knife and I can give you a solid estimate.
