Oh, by the way guys, I got an offer for a lighty used but in good condition Benchmade 710 D2 plain satin. Price is US$115 w/o shipping. Do you think I should jump on this offer or wait for the legendary 710 M390 steel to pop up miraculously?

Share your views please! I'd like to have some advices ASAP!
HI Sigma
whats the craze about 710? any story to share?
apart from the 710 series being one of the first to feature the axis lock..
personally i find it too plain for my liking.

try cutleryshoppe or knifeworks which is about USD111 after 25% discount.

there is also a exclusive knifeworks version with CPM M4 steel

I don't get the 710 fascination as well, unless you're after the M390 steel (yes!). I like supersteels, especially if properly heat treated. I will have a M390 folder coming in the future, I would love to put that to good use. BUt right now, I want kitchen knives...especially Japanese kitchen knives.

Hi Sojourn88 and Vespaguy.

I've been eyeing the 710 for quite awhile already, but I couldnt bring myself to buy it until recently. I like the fact that it is plain and simple. And also because it is perfectly symmetrical on both sides.
I'm looking to modify it with titanium stand offs and custom milled anodized ti scales with moonglow inlay.

And I'd really like some advice on the steel choice. D2 or M4? I'm really torn between the two for the prices they ate offered at. Any idea? Corrosion resistance is probably my priority since I won't need to hard use the blade.

D2 is more corrosion resistant than M4. D2 is semi stainless tool steel, and from ingot, whereas M4 is powdered steel.. i expect rust to form first in the spaces in between the powders. considering our notorious humidity. maybe in terms of "exoticness" M4 appeals... but being very conscious of rust forming easily in Singapore, I prefer D2 over M4.

I don't think you'll be able to find any 710 with M390 under the hazy conditions presently and plus these were sold out like 2-3 years ago? your best bet may be to post WTBs on forums.....

There are many high-end steels out there, M390 not the only one.
