    Also they didn't charge a dime. Not even for shipping it back to me.

    I have the 580 Barrage. It has the axis lock and an axis-assist opening. What more could you want in a knife? Except maybe an auto, but in most places you can't really edc those.

    The only Benchmade that I've ever liked is the Morpho. But that one I really like, it's very nice.

    I am so amazed that BM took this one out of production and discontinued the 610 Rukus.
    But I am very glad I've got mine ;-) I also own a 760bk LFTi, but you can't compare those two.

    I like the size (10.12”) and the smoothness of opening and closing of the 610.
    The S30V blade has a good looking Pewter finish and the handle nice Micarta and G10 scales.
    All this in combination with the design makes it HQ knife and my nr.1 Benchmade.

    Spyderco fans know their designers too: Walker, Schempp, Terzuola, Breeden, Jot Singh, Dialex, CLB, Janich and most commonly, Sal and Eric Glesser.

    Just recently acquired the Barrage and really like it, however the mini-Grip is hard to beat.

    I also have the original pre production model of the Benchmade McHenry & Williams 710 Axis lock with aluminum handles. Anyone else have one of these?

    I'm pretty much Spyderco all the way, too. The one & only Benchmade I have is a mini-grip, it's purple (& that's why I got it, but it's a nice knife).

    Thanks for all the suggestions, looks like its going to be the Benchmade 940 for me. The 710 looks nice as well but blade is a bit large, under 3.5" is what Im going for and perfect size for me.
