Product Review (submitted on August 16, 2016):
I love this knife as a workhorse, I'm a machinist by day and i work on a farm in the evening. I have cut everything from plastic banding, silage bags, rope, cardboard boxes, and decapitated soda cans for a spitter with this thing and it is still scary sharp. The scales are perfect size and texture with or without gloves, and with greasy or wet or manure covered hands, but they will wear holes in your pants pockets after a short time (2 months for me). The deep carry clip keeps it from falling out nicely which is great for a knife this size and weight. The glass breaker works awesome for convincing stubborn cows to move without causing injury. My only gripe is that Benchmade doesn't make it in M390. I know they make the 810-1401 for Knife Works, but i heard the scales are not as rough, and it does not have a glass breaker. When i cut open salt bags for the softener it has caused the edge, logo, and liners to rust pretty bad,and i have to oil it quite a bit to keep the action from freezing up. I'm not sure why they classify it as tactical, I would carry an Infidel for tactical, this thing belongs on a farm or construction site.
