The Benchmade 810SBK pocket knife, a member of Benchmade black class knives and with the help of Osborne Design, is a tactical folding knife built for toughness and durability and designed to live up to the Latin meaning for its name "protect" or "shield."
The Benchmade Contego features a black CPM-M4 reverse tanto blade, the steel designed to offer incredible wear resistance and toughness, with the reverse tanto blade offering a little extra durability. The blade on this Benchmade knife is also a combination edge for a variety of different cutting uses. A textured and contoured G10 handle is comprised of layers of fiberglass that are soaked in resin then compressed and baked, providing the Benchmade 810SBK with a handle that is impervious to moisture and resistant to instability even under climatic change. Benchmade's patented Axis lock technology functions when the Axis bar rides forward in a slot in both of the knife's steel liners then engages the tang portion of the knife's blade when the blade is deployed, locking the blade in place and ensuring ease of use for Benchmade Axis lock knife owners. Additionally, this American made pocket knife comes equipped with ambidextrous thumb stud openers, a stainless steel backspacer, a deep carry tip-up pocket clip and a carbide glass breaker on the rear of the knife. If you're looking for a protector yourself, let the Benchmade Contego pocket knife get to work for you.
