I like the size and style of this knife. However, I have left it in my pocket at least twice and ran it through the washing machine. Each time the assist feature stopped working. I had to disassemble the knife to get it working. The main pivot for the blade is a fastener that if you tighten too much, the blade will not open. Not a big fan of that design. Kind of think that for $200 the knife should survive a wash cycle inside a jeans pocket.

My wife bought the Emissary 470-1 for me. This is my third Benchmade knife and I have to say that I am thoroughly pleased with it. It exhibits superior quality, materials and workmanship. The assisted opening mechanism is smooth, reliable and predictable. In my opinion, this is knife making at its best.

I just got my new Benchmade today, and all I can say is, "Wow!" Why did I buy such an expensive knife? And why the 470-1?
Well, I have been carrying a Spyderco Military while I was overseas.(7 years in Afghanistan and Iraq as a contractor) This is a great knife, huge, strong, and well, that was the problem when I came back stateside and got a job running a warehouse. I had several people comment that I was carrying a "Folding Sword," a "Pocket Machete," and the worst, a "Weapon." So, I needed something smaller that I could still open with one hand to do all those jobs around the warehouse that I needed to do.
I looked at a LOT of knives, from a lot of companies, and kept coming back to Benchmade. I have owned several Benchmades, and all were outstanding. I carried an AFCK during Desert Shield/Desert Storm when I was running all over as a military courier. I was helping out with the repairs on a Bradley fighting vehicle that I was a passenger on, and left my knife laying on the concrete. When 26 ton tracked vehicle rolls over a knife, well... One of the guys gave me a large Benchmade Automatic knife that was being issued to some of the troops (At that time, troops with the word "Special" in them) and I carried that one proudly for the rest of the conflict. Customs stateside had issues with the knife, and instead of arguing, I handed the knife over, but not before jamming it into the roller system, and yanking hard, rendering the knife inop. If I can't have it, I ain't giving it to some inspector, whom I suspect just wanted it for himself.
I went back to the middle east with a Benchmade Mini Reflex, and that was truly a wonderful knife. Along the way, I picked up a Nimravous that I carried anytime I was leaving the compound. Coming home from Afghanistan, I was told I could not ship nor carry an auto knife, so I passed it along to a soldier who was in need of a good knife. The Spyderco that my brother bought me sort of lived in my go bag, sometimes was carried, often used to open crates, cut heavy materials, etc. When I came home, I started to carry it full time.
So, I loved Benchmade quality, but needed a smaller knife. I must have perused the on-line catalog a million times, read any and all reviews of all the knives, and finally bit the bullet, and ordered the 470.
I have large hands, and was worried about a small knife. I worried about nothing. This knife is easy to carry, easy to open, and easy to use. Sharp as a bloody razor, great steel, locks up tight, great blade shape, handle is big enough to hold on to. What more could you ask? No, this is NOT a tactical knife. (I carry a Kahr .380 for that role), but it is an outstanding work knife, every day carry knife, gentleman's knife, and most importantly, it is a great MY knife!

I have had this knife for 4 or 5 yrs, I'm not sure. I'm 65, and I've had the typical pocket knives, from Case and Buck, and Boker, and my previous fav, a Gerber Paul knife. This little benchmade has kicked them all to the curb. I use it as an edc, and it has opened countless packages from Amazon, eviscerated hundreds of plastic clamshell packaging, ( gotta get those light bulbs out somehow) and still managed the occasional apple or salami at lunch. Some of the anodizing is off the ends of the alum handle due to every day wear, and about once a yr or so I have to wash a lube the pivot to keep it from sticking. I've also touched up the blade with a ceramic rod a couple of times. It's stupid sharp, and it's dependable. What more can you ask for?
