At first I was not a fan of the manual opening and locking system, but now that I've been carrying it for a week, its grown on me.
ProsThe blade keeps an edge, the handle feels great, and it fits well in the pocket

This is a great blade
I love this knife,and if it were offered in assisted opener AND with a blade about 1" longer = I would buy more than 1 to never be without it.
ProsSOLID lock [ as are all these designed locks ]. Glass breaker is a great tool,and one I hope to not need. Opens fast if needed and can be close with 1 hand.
ConsNo assisted opener,that is a great way to sell any knife. MUCH faster and surer for the old hands [ like mine ]. WISH the blade were 1" longer,as I love a larger blade.

A well balanced Benchmade
The Contego is a well balanced knife, I bought the 810SBK and it's a great addition to my rotation of EDC knives. The glass breaker on the butt of the Contego is a nice feature and would come in handy if you needed it in a emergency situation to break the glass on your vehicle. The handle does seem a bit rough at first usage, but after daily use, it's a great feature as well.

Just received the knife yesterday. No usage yet, but it certainly feels sturdy. I have heard lots of complaints regarding the rough finish on the grip. Personally, I think it feels fine. If you have even somewhat tough working hands, it should not be an issue. My only major complaint thus far is the blade alignment. Right out of the box I noticed that there was blade rub against the liner. This was very disappointing given the price paid for the knife. The rubbing looks like it is going to take off the blade coating if not corrected. I attempted to make adjustments to correct it but was unable to. I emailed Benchmade this morning as it appears others have been having the same issue.

This knife is by far the best knife I have ever owned. Very solid with no play in the blade/handle and is well balanced. The blade holds a solid edge. This is a high quality piece of gear that wont let you down.

Does this knife come with the the assisted opening mechanism?
The Benchmade 810 Contego is not an assisted opening knife. It features the Axis locking mechanism, but is not spring-assisted.
