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 23, 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

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.

Sharpest And Favorite Folding Knives Tag – VR To readyinthehills

Victorinox Fireman and Opinel No. 9 are my favorite and sharpest folding knives, respectively. The Opinel is probably the sharpest of all my knives, includin…


Jackson asked At what age is it appropriate to give children a pocket knife?

Both my brother and I got a pocket knife for Christmas when we were young. I believe I was 12 and he was 10. We were instructed to always keep the blade sharp, always cut away from ourselves, and that it is a tool not a toy or a weapon. I still carry a pocketknife (not the same one) to this day, and have found it very useful.

So, provided that the child who will be receiving the pocket knife understands how to use it safely and responsibly, when would you give your child (or grandchild, or whatever) a pocket knife?

And got the following answer:

Im 11 and I have an axe spear pipe metal chain 1 foot long knife 8.8 in knife hooked knife and then also matches. I would say age 5.

(P.S.): I’ve only stabbed myself once and not very deep, Ive only cut my finger severely twice (Razor sharp knife is not pocket knife) And I have only lost my knife once (Sister took it)

Hayden Smith asked What is the sharpest folding pocket knife?

What is the sharpest out of the box folding pocket knife?

And got the following answer:

sharpest I have seen out of the box are Cold Steel.

Of course you can fix that with most any knife in a couple of minutes.

MommaDoo asked My 15 year old daughter stepped on a copperheads head and cut its head off because it was near little kids?

It was hissing and stricking at the kids. She cut its head off with a sharp pocket knife. How much danger was she in stepping on its head?

And got the following answer:

copperheads are highly deadly, if it would have bitten her and she did not receive medical attention immediately she could have died

gabe s asked how can i make a pipe from wood?

do i need to do anything to the wood. will it catch on fire while im using it. and what kind of knife do i need to whittel it down. i tried using a sharp pocket knife but it wasnt really working

And got the following answer:

I use a band saw to rough-out the overall size, then I use a Dremel tool to bring it to shape. Drill a 1/4″ hole from the stem to the bowl and use a larger bit for the bowl. (This is where you decide “party bowl” or “one hitter.”) Also, on the types of wood that works best, I’ve had great success with black walnut, osage, oak and then have even made some beautiful pipes out of exotic woods. Get creative!!! I’ve made 100’s of them and my favorite is “my lady.” She’s black walnut and the bowl is between her boobs and the li’l knot in the wood that is her belly button is also, when you turn her over, her booty!! It rocks! Best piece I’ve ever made and she’s smoked a LOT and never burned up in front of me! (She has gotten HOT though…but she IS my LADY!) LOL.. Good luck! Experiment, Create, Enjoy! No rule is the rule!!

derfman24 asked What is the best pocket knife for a boy scout?

Well I’m a boy scout and I just earned my totin’ chit and I need a pocket knife to use. It’s for camping. I would like one for $0-$40.
Oh yeah it can’t be more than 3 inches long.

And got the following answer:

Hello Scout: Now that you’ve earned your tot’n’chip, you know that the best pocket knife has four blades; a large utility blade, a can opener, a small whitling blade, and a punch. The best knife to take camping is a cheap one that you won’t be sad about when it is lost. If you can’t afford to lose it, and must have it, use a short piece of rope to tie it to your belt. My favorite knife is the four-blade stainless steel government issue knife. I paid less than $10 on eBay for it, and have had it for four years or so. It is great for camping, and I use it nearly daily at work. The blade is not excessively sharp, but for cutting cord, sharpening a stick, or whitling fire tinder, it is very handy.
The other writer suggested a pocket tool like the leatherman, these are great as well, but I have difficulty using the knife, but the other tools inside are very handy at work, not so much at camp. Sadly, I lost mine a few days ago after only having it a few weeks. Still have the four-blader tho’.
I also have a Victorinox Swiss Army knife that I take on some trips. The only other blade that I use is the small saw that it has. If you get one as a gift, that is good, but I would stick to your simple four-blade model. The BSA model is a good knife, but it is not economical for a Scout to pay that much for a camping tool.
Keep on Scoutin’

Hob asked How do you know if a pocket knife is sharp enough? What is a good test?

When sharpening a pocket knife how sharp is sharp enough? I’ve heard that if you use a strop you will get a razor sharp edge that will dull quickly. So I want a practical sharp edge but not so razor sharp that it will dull quickly. What is a good test to know whether your knife is sharp enough? I’ve seen some people cut paper or hair off of their arm on youtube videos after sharpening but I’m wondering if that is not a demonstration of a knife that has become impractically sharp.

And got the following answer:

Place the sharpened edge across a finger or thumb nail and if you can slide it easily toward the end of the nail, it’s dull. If it doesn’t slide easily it’s sharp. A knife made of the right metal should hold an edge if used for practical purposes, but not forever. Good Luck

Anonymous asked What is the best pocket knife sharpener to get?

I want to get my husband a good pocket knife sharpener he is always trying to find ways to get his knife sharp…Whats a good one that will also last and not put scratches on his knife?

And got the following answer:

Go to a sporting goods store like Bass Pro Shop’s, or Gander Mountain.
Ask the for a “Smith’s precision sharpening kit”
This kit has not only sharpening stone’s but a clamping device that holds the stone at a constant angle the entire sharpening process, sharpening only the edge of the blade, and never scratching the finish.
Its also great for all pocket, hunting and kitchen knives.
The kits start at about 25 bucks for the basic model.
The sharpening stones use diamond impregnated surfaces that will last a lifetime.

Pro asked Anyone know where to look for a lightweight yet really sharp pocket knife?

I have purchased the Ontario pocket knife and it has been surfing my purpose quite well so far. The blade is very sharp but the only flaw is that it’s a bit heavy
Link : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001AC2M62/ref=oss_product
Does anyone know where to find a similar compact pocket knife just like the one in the link but instead it is lighter to carry around?

And got the following answer:

Buy any knife that you want and sharpen it yourself. Any knife can be really sharp if you take care of it.
