Benchmade Emmissary 470



This is the finest gentleman's knife I've ever owned.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $175


This is the finest gentleman's knife I've ever owned. Small enough to be comfortably hidden in front pockets.


  • Stays amazingly sharp
  • Easily tucks in front pockets
  • Super fast deployment


  • A little pricey (but well worth it)

I wanted an auto or spring assist everyday knife. I needed a knife that would not be heavy or bulky in my pocket. The Emmissary meets both those needs and more.

Stays amazing sharp. I have had other less expensive knives in the past but nothing holds an edge like Benchmade. I also wanted a spring assist or auto knife. The spring assist is faster and safer than some autos. 

Outstanding construction with reversible clip. I have the metal case and have had no issues. I have had it for 3 years and love it. This is a great everyday knife. I also have a Griptillion that is a heaver knife with serrated throat for camping and hiking. Couldn't ask for a better knife.
