Contego Family

Product Review (submitted on August 14, 2017):
First off it's been several years since I've carried an EDC knife, and when I did they were mostly cheap $5-$15 knives I would replace after they got dull. After hearing about Benchmade from a friend who's coworker had an Infidel I started looking into them. I went to my local Benchmade dealer to have a look around mainly looking for a knife just to add to my collection After trying to decide between a 950 and an Adamas the salesman showed me an 810 Contego and I had to have it. I got the plain bladed version in gray and I absolutely love it. I've only had it for 5 days now but it has become a wonderful EDC and it is scary sharp! I've had sharp knives but nothing quite like this. The ergonomics are great as I have very large hands, the G10 grips assure a positive hold all the time, and I certainly do not find it to be too heavy for EDC. I'm very impressed with the overall fit, finish, and quality of this blade. I will definately be buying more Benchmade knives and have already ordered a 535 Bugout for times when I may need a smaller lighter knife.
