David Kruse: Another great review JDavis, I agree with you, great EDC knife and blade to
handle length ratio. I have tons of knives but I keep throwing this in my
pocket. I guess it is the sum of all parts after using it for awhile
because I can't really explain why I love it so much. Maybe it is like my
old Toyota pickup that I beat the heck out of but loved even with it's
flaws. It was the knife that introduced the axis lock I believe (which I
love but others may not). The G2 scales are kinda funky but thin and it
carries very well. I thought you were very unbiased even though I have seen
many great knives that you love in your vids. Sub'd
Jerry Calabrese: One of my favorite Benchmades', and like you said brother- there's not much
you can't like about this knife. By the way your an excellent narrator and
do a fine job of explaining the finer points on whatever your talking about
and I appreciate that. But this knife is not only great for edc because of
the ergos but is also great for self defence, if you ever had to use it(God
forbid for that) very very nice grip in hand, and nice texture to hold on
to. Thanks again for the review, one last point about this blade is the
price point for what your paying for- great great knife- definately
comparable to the Paramilitary 2!
cyrus jacob: Keep in it really
simonize251: Hey JDavis man when you sharpen this particular model do find it easier to
do by hand than on the edge pro?
Bill Hartsfield: Great Review, just one point it is and has been a classic from way before
the Para 2 was even conceived. it's a great knife.
kingstaff4: Why even put the Spyderco next to it and not even talk about it?
pelahale: those two are knives for people with large hands.
Temperdgrump: A common issue with the 710 is that the blade hits the back spacer and
actually cuts into it. Had that problem with both 710s I owned.
duvaldrummer: nice review man and I can't wait for that contest.. btw Bladehq is running
a big cyber mon/tues sale including all Benchmades. I just picked up a 940
Osborne for $126 shipped! I'm pretty stoked about it, its my first true
benchmade. I've had a couple H&K knives but never one with a butterfly haha
anyways, take care and keep up the awesome vids!
golddot370: congrats on the 1,000 subs John it seems just like yesterday when i subed
you at 300 subs. I really like that blade you reviewed you should do more.
The rite in the rain pad is gettng put to good use in the E.R thanks again
and keep up the good work.
frogmen4life: Did the cpm m4 version of the 710 change that score?
vvvv999vvv: I picked up a 710 and I'm really loving the blade shape and overall feel.
FH: i'm really lovin your reviews. I've been watching them all 'cause your
tastes seem pretty in line with mine but the one thing you could do to be
the best reviewer on youtube is keep them a little more succinct. I don't
mind a 15 min review as long as there's 15 min of stuff to say but i feel
like a review like this could have been done in less than 10min and still
have been just as useful. keep 'em coming!
simonize251: Can you sharpen this 710 on the Apex with that weird curve?
brutusbruno: Spyderco's prettier.
tylenator552: i have a non coated 710. I think im gonna pick up a black one
benbenekben benek: My 710 is on a way to meeeee ! : b. Thx 4 review... : p
MPSecare: hell yeah Benchamade.
firstname.lastname@example.org: I LOVE knife videos, so make more - please=) Sweet blade right there - the
Benchmade and the Spyderco. Take care!
MorbidMinister666: hey got a question...recently picked up a 710 in D2 and i was wondering if
the sharpmaker was a good sharpener to use to keep it hair shaving sharp?
what are some other simple to use sharpeners that are easy to use? im a
novice at sharpening and want to be able to keep my blade sharp and not
damage it trying. any advice or suggestions?
knivesfishwild: Great knife, agree with you regarding ergonomics and like the steel and
grind. My only regret is that this knife is recurve. I don't like recurve,
but its purely a preference thing. If it weren't recurve, I'd have picked
one up. Overall, great knife though. Thanks for the review.
emrguns1: Have you thought about building custom knives or do you already? Thanks for
a great review.
David Lawman: B- is a pretty low score for it to become classic ;)
Lorbera: Congratz on 1000 subs. There is no benchmade, except the Doug Ritter MK1,
that appeals to me. I don`t like the company, and most of their designs
don`t appeal to me at all.
ZippoThisKnifeThat: Congrats on 1k man! 710 is one of the few BMs I personally liked.
jdavis882: @oromoto Well there is no denying the popularity of this knife. My thoughts
on it don't really change the years of fanfare this knife has had. If it
didn't have the few flaws I mentioned it would be an A+ for me. :)
jdavis882: @dgulbra Their site claims 60-62, no real way of knowing short of getting
it tested. Thanks for the kind words. :)
1nvrknws: i like the idea behind the 710, but prefer it in the limited run of M390
steel made for knifecenter (i believe). I could use more blade belly too
and a wave feature (or a hole)... but, oh, well, they keep coming up with
new models all the time...
SezMan716: Hey man. Just watched this again but was wonderin of you could show
sharpening this on a stone shaped like your dmt or spyderco bench stones
cuz that's what use and didn't know if you could sharpen that slight
recurve on a flat stone
Paul V: I like how the axis lock pulls the blade in when you close it because you
can easily open and close it with one hand. With the Para 2 for example
when I close it it never seems to close all the way, so I actually prefer
the way the blade sucks in at the end on the Benchmade knives.
pietermoore: i wouldnt mind a 710 if EVERY single one ive ever handled didnt have a fair
amount of blade play. I do like the way they look though.
Stacy Alliston: Nice review and congrats on 1K subs!! Personaly I struggle to find any
Benchmade designs that really appeal to me. Plus I do find them to be over
priced when compared to Spyderco.
Grailstock: ill subscribe then.
ManCove: Hey look at that, no dislikes yet, ah crap just jinxed it..
dgulbra: Great review on the 710, it's a very nice Benchmade. I believe the HRC on
the D2 is 59-61. You should do more reviews on blades, we all like to hear
msiley: I have that problem it too. But I think by now it's cut far enough into it,
it doesn't effect the edge.
Kevin lau: nice review jdavis love it!
JKC: Contests on the 1k subs! Keep it up
defenseandsafety: i suggest a little locktite on the pivot screw - otherwise it'll loosen up
over time and create blade play. i really like that black blade version - i
think i might get one of those too. now i need to call bm and get the splt
arrow clip ;) are there any bm knives you like better than the 710? i
haven't found one i like better.
