    I know there are quite a few gun collectors and shooters on this forum. So, I assume there are also a few knife-knuts here, also. The two often go together.
    I'm a Benchmade fan. I never liked the model 710 very much, until Knifeworks commissioned a special edition designated as the 710-1401. The regular 710 is a fairly big pocket knife, about 9" in overall length, with black g10 handles and a D2 tool steel blade. Liked the overall design, but didn't care for the D2 blade, or the flat black g10 handle. Then, Benchmade started building a 710 with nicely contoured blue and black layered g10 handles and an open frame design. They also mated that handle with Bohler M390 blade steel. The combination is absolute perfection, in my opinion. I bought two.
    When I heard that Benchmade discontinued the 710, I looked all over the internet for them, just to see if it was true. Not a one to be found, anywhere. So, I checked Knifeworks website and they were out, too, but they still had some special edition models left. I ordered another one, just to get it while it was still there. That's how much I like this blasted knife.
    Any other collectors out there in GiM land who like Benchmade, or the 710 model? If you do, get one of the 710-1401's while you can. They're $179.95. It's a good deal, in my opinion, with the M390 steel and layered g10 handle.

    I love knives Sonsir. I hunt flea markets every Saturday looking for deals on American or German made folders.

    My latest score was a case mini copperlock with barnwood figured bone scales. It was in a glass box surrounded by China junk, paid 12 bucks for it. An 09 model.

    I've got a small collection going, yet to have a benchmade though. Nice knives.

    Holy smokes! A nice old Case, bone-scaled knife for 12 bucks. You did good. I never had much of a Case collection, though I collected Toothpicks for awhile. I mostly like tactical-style folders. Benchmade, Spyderco and the like. I do have some nice gentleman's style pocket folders, too. You can't pull out a 9" knife around the sheeple. They get scared.

    This one here I bought last summer from a local thrift store. It was sitting in a glass case with a piece of paper saying "vintage hand made knife and sheath 1970's"

    Of course I dont know if any of that is true but to my eye the sheath alone was worth the asking price of 40 dollars.

    20170605_120643.jpg

    Full tang but no stamp to speak of. Brass and some sort of dark exotic wood with golden striped undertones for the handle.

    Some amateur scratched the blade some trying to sharpen it. But it's like a razor now, feels so good in hand. I carry it on occasions.

    That's very nice. Well put together. I'm surprised there's no maker's mark on it, even if he's relatively unkown. There are a lot off guys out there, though, that nobody's ever heard of that make some really nice blades.

    This guy builds some beautiful knives. I thought I might want one but when I emailed him with my request price on a Khukuri he wrote back that he could build one for me for $2200. (And that was with a plain-jane wooden handle)
    Too rich for this boy. damn!

    My small knife collection.

    Remington bullet knives - I have nearly all the year models that have been made. Started collecting them back in the 1980's.

    Michael Morris Knives (Michigan knife maker) - I have five different models. (Pictures found for two of the models I have)

    Benchmade Knives - I like them a lot however 10 years ago their pocket clips were IMO poorly made and I lost 2 out of the 3 Benchmade folders I purchased. The problem with the pocket clips may have since been corrected. The one I still have is the following Elishewitz 3-1/2 tonto blade

    I never had any problems with Benchmade clips, so far. I had a CRKT knife that both clip screws backed out and the clip fell off. Luckily, the knife just fell down in my pocket. Well, it was only a $35 knife. No big loss, if it hadn't slipped down in my pocket.
    Those fixed blade knives. Do you take them out in the field, or are they collector pieces?

    I use the knives, not hard, but as needed. I like the Morris knives so much I kind of went wild and bought all 5 in 2010.

    I have one of each in a 6”, 7” and 8” overall length blade (all similar to the profile of the 8” Classic Hunter shown in the top picture). In addition to the MAC 10.5” (bottom picture), I also have a neck knife that was made per my request.

    I use the 6” the most. The MAC 10.5 always has a place in my survival bag.

    FYI Morris knives are high carbon tool steel (all made from files annealed to mid-50s rockwell) so they do require oil for maintenance and after use.

    if at all interested see the video segment on Morris knives starting at the 11:03 minute mark.

    I really like Nick Shabazz. The guy has a lot of personality and an interesting voice and delivery. He's also funny as hell, sometimes. He knows his knives. Good video, Searcher.

    The Presidio. Nice knife. I've never had one of those. I'm a 940 fan and 710 fan, of course. I have five different versions of the 940. Two different titanium models, one with carbon fiber, one with black g10 and the Knifeworks special edition version with layered black/blue g10, like their 710 model. Other than those and my 710's I've got one of the mini titanium monolocks and two old 875 Sentinels, almost twenty years out of production. Those are my keepers. I've had quite a number more that were "catch and release" knives. Did not like them enough to keep them. Benchmade has designed and produced many nice, high quality knives and produced many designer models over the years. Good company, good products, great service.

    My only question to Mr. Hoback would be, what do astronauts need a big folding knife for? Unless they expect some unfriendly Klingons to stop by.

    Interesting. I'm not much of a Spyderco collector. I only have four, but it's a nice fact to know, if you buy one on the secondary market. Good vid. Short and sweet.

    How to disassemble and maintain the CRKT Tighe Tac Two Tanto Pocketknife
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jun 21, 2017
    Today, a slightly more complex reassembly. There's a button lock, there's bearings, but most frustratingly, there's poor tolerances, which lead to a long struggle to get the blade back to centered, necessitating ugly hacks like re-reversing the pivot and swapping washers.

    Although this is a fun knife with a good action, and all's well that ends well, this is living proof that cheap knives are usually harder to maintain.

    The CRKT Tighe Tac Two Tanto Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jun 22, 2017
    The Tighe Tac Two Tanto is a terrific tactical toy, with truly trouble-free triggering of the tab and a true inTerpretation of Tighe's traditional trappings. But tragically, it trades too much tool for "toy", and I can't tout this transaction. Too bad.

    The US Military's New Combat Utility Knife | Review & Giveaway | Tactical Rifleman
    Tactical Rifleman



    Published on Jun 23, 2017
    In this week’s video, I wanted to talk about a new pocket utility knife that just got added to the US DLA (US Defense Logistics Agency) supply system. No, it is not as sexy as a Minigun. Neither is a Medical Kit, but we use utility knives and med kits much more often than belt-fed machine guns.

    When my buddy Joe heard I wasn’t carrying a switchblade anymore, he asked if I had seen the new utility knife that he had just gotten a NSN (national Stock Number) for. Always open to new kit & training, I told him I would give it a look. I really like this new knife. It’s light at just 4.6 ounces, and has no sharp edges to tear up or snag in your pockets. If I could add one thing to any good folding knife, it would be adding a saw blade; and this puppy has it. So, that caught my eye right off the bat. Now, it’s not American made, like the old Camillus. That would be preferred, but this thing is Swiss quality; very pretty with good features. So, I tried to break it. I tried hard. I had this knife since SHOT in January and we just filmed this video. If you want a good knife to issue to your privates, without worrying about them getting rolled up in the club, this is going to be a good performer all around. Besides the saw (which is great), I also used the locking wire-stripper/wire-bender a bunch around the house; and the phillips screwdriver doubles as a punch for blasting caps (universal capwell sized). Some will bitch that it does not have a pocket clip. Yeah, fine, but it does have a lanyard hole, so your troops can “dummy cord” it off when they are in the field. If you are in the US military, you can have your Supply Sergeant order you one. The NSN is 1095-01-653-1166. If you do not have access to the DLA Supply System, you can reach out directly to Joe or his partner Jerry, and order one directly from from them.
    Joe jtraurig@verizon.net 215-947-0200
    Jerry jrinder24@gmail.com 570-974-6099

    Here’s the bonus… Joe gave me a couple extra of these knives to film in this video. So, we are going to give them away to a randomly drawn new subscriber to tacticalrifleman.com. So, if you haven’t already subscribed, click here: http://www.tacticalrifleman.com, and you could be the lucky guy or girl to get this new knife. To enter you must subscribe to Tacticalrifleman.com by June 30th, 2017 12pm EST. Good luck! Must be in USA and 18+ years of age to win!

    Thanks for watching. Next week, I’m back talking body armor and mag placement. Strength & Honor, TR.

    The Reate Horizon C Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jun 24, 2017
    The Reate Horizon C is a pocketknife that's done very nicely. It's simple, well constructed, with good tolerances and a great action. Aside from the stupid crud groove, it's a great knife, and one that merits a closer look!

    I've got several Benchmade knives and it happens that this 710 is my everyday carry knife. The blade on this version is made from Austrian M390 "super" steel. In other words, it stays sharp a long time.

    Hey! Fantastic TomD. I was beginning to wonder if anyone else even knew about this knife. I love mine. They carry easily and the darn things are so well built. They only weigh in at 3.6 ounces and there's so much blade and a nice, hand-filling g10 handle. Another aspect of the Knifeworks design that I really like is the open frame build. You don't get that on the original 710. Like I said in the OP, this version is what the 710 always should have been. The M390is top of the line blade steel and one of the things that makes this knife the perfect realization of this model and it has everything I always wanted in a large tactical folder. Thanks for the great post.

    On around 70% of days I'll have the Benchmade 710 in my pocket, on most of the remaining days I'll have this Benchmade 15080. I'm pretty picky about my personal gear and don't like cheap stuff. To me, Benchmade hits the "sweet spot" of the price quality curve. As much as I would like to have a Sebenza, it simply wouldn't be worth $170-$180 more to me than my 710 or 15080 Benchmades.

    This knife has a blade made from S30V steel, usually not my personal favorite but this blade sharpens easily and holds the edge better than other blades of the same steel that I have. I put a razor shaving edge on this a couple of months ago and it still shaves easily.

    I've got a Kershaw knife with an S30V blade but I can't seem to do a thing with it.

    I used to own Sebenza's and Mnandi's. After carrying them around for a number of months, I came to the same conclusion as you and put them up for sale on eBay. Same with William Henry's. I had a number of those and the price/quality ratio, as you called it just didn't add up.

    Benchmade and Spyderco seem to both get that right. Benchmade, more so than anybody else in my opinion. Your 15080 is a nice looking knife. It's reminiscent of a Buck 110 in looks, but has the axis lock.

    Nick's take on CH knives (and other imported No-Name, Dice-roll Brands)
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jun 25, 2017
    Today, I'm going to do a disassembly and rant video, talking about CH knives and why they're not going to be channel regulars, but the same applies for other the hundreds of no-name knives and brands available on direct-import websites, where you might get a gem, you might get junk, but you won't get a warranty or consistency, and at the end of the day, you're rolling the dice.

    The Cold Steel Ultimate Hunter Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jul 1, 2017
    Although it's a bit thick in the blade, and it's not for everybody, the Cold Steel Ultimate Hunter is ultimately a pretty damned good knife, and although it's not my style, strictly speaking, it's a gem.

    The Kizer Megatherium Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jul 8, 2017
    Today, we're going to look at the Kizer Megatherium, a unique and interesting design by Elijah Isham. It's well thought out, ergonomic, and a serious cutting tool, and if you don't mind that it's very, *very* "mega" in size, it'll probably be a gem.

    I got a Christy knife this week. I only learned about these a few weeks ago. Made in USA by the same Fremont, OH company for 4 generations.

    Anyone know about this knife or have any stories about it?

    The Shirogorov 111 Pocketknife: The Full Nick Shabazz Review
    Nick Shabazz



    Published on Jul 22, 2017
    The Shirogorov 111 is an incredible knife, which is beautifully designed, beautifully thought out, and beautifully detented. Aside from the only thing bigger than the knife being the price, this is absolutely a gem.

    Well, I started this thread awhile back, but because my "not so smart phone" wasn't so smart, I wasn't able to post any photos. Fortunately, Searcher was kind enough to keep the thread going, posting videos along the way. Thanks Searcher. I think I might have my file to thread problems solved, though, so I'm going to attempt to post some nice photos of the Benchmade 710-1401, along with photos of other knives in the series, also. The first pics show the lines of this knife and the really attractive black and blue layered G-10 handles and the nice open pillared, flow-through design of the knife. Then, if everything goes well, I will post pics of the BM 810-1401 and the BM 940-1501. You will see the obvious similarities in materials and design elements, even though the 710 was designed by different people and the 810 and 940, though designed by the same guy, Warren Osborne (RIP), have different design purposes. Hope you enjoy the photos, providing they come through.
    Thanks Searcher. Keep posting videos!

    My photos, above, didn't come out in the order I wanted, as the 810 pics showed up in the middle of the 710 pics. But, they're there. The last four pics are all 940-1401. I thought, since this is working for me, I would post a few more BM 940 photos. These are of the current production 940-1, which I the beautiful carbon fiber version of this knife. Then, I'm going to post a few pics of the 940titanium version and the 940ti-01. The ti-01 has the polished titanium handles, with blued edges. All three are excellent knives and gorgeous to look at, if you're into knife porn.
