    A local retailer is offering the Benchmade 810 Contengo for alot less than $180. Black coat w/ a serated blade. Any likes or dislikes with this model (they do not have a plain edge)

    I don't own one but have fondled one alot.
    I would get it if you can get a deal on it. Love the feel in the hand and the axis lock.
    The steel is high quality and stays sharp a long time.

    I second Knifeworks, they're my go-to for Benchmades, they're darn near unbeatable with the coupon codes they always have.

    As for the knife itself, it's my favorite Benchmade, it's big, tough, and takes and holds a great edge. Only thing that needs fixing is the stupid deep carry pocket clip, I have no idea how that horrible trend started. Fortunately a regular Benchmade clip fits fine, you just use the outer two holes (unless you drill a third hole in the middle, which I did).

    Thank you guys that is a great deal and online retailer! I've never owned a folding serrated edge blade and decided to pull the trigger here locally. bm's hq is about 20 miles from me I went there and held every black series they made. 810 won me over. Again thanks for the imput!

    My favorite Benchmade by far. I carry mine a lot. I'm sure I have written a review on here if you search for it.
