The Benchmade 810 Contego takes its name from the Latin word for "protect." As a tactical folding knife made with only the strongest materials, the Contego is the ultimate protector to whoever carries the knife.
Designed by the late great Warren Osborne, the knife features a 3.98-inch blade made from CPM-M4, a tough super steel that gets scary sharp. Its reverse tanto blade design has a large belly for slicing and a strong point. This particular version comes with a partially serrated black-coated blade for extra utility.
Dual thumb studs are well-placed on the blade to allow for easy one-handed opening in any situation. As with every Benchmade folder, the blade stays engaged thanks to the ambidextrous and reliable AXIS locking mechanism.
The toughness of the Contego doesn't stop at the blade though.
Made from heavily milled G10 scales, the handle boasts aggressive texture and an ergonomic design that'll keep the knife firmly in hand at all costs. A carbide glass breaker at the butt gives you a last option when things get dire.
Finally, a reversible tip-up carry pocket clip bears the familiar butterfly logo of the iconic American-made brand.
