Hello all, I am new to the forums here as I usually spend my time on the gun forums. I just ordered my first ever Benchmade knives. I went with the 710 D2 and a 551 Griptilian. I look forward to receiving both.

Welcome to Bladeforum's and Benchmade...
You started off great. I think the 710's and the Grips are the two most popular, and biggest sellers for Benchmade.

Got a custom griptillian earlier this year and I am in mad love with it. Though the custom plastic grips feel cheap. It is my EDC knife. I use it to clean under my fingernails to food prep. Also easy to pull apart to deep clean and oil. The easiest knife I have ever pulled apart and reassembled.

Congrats. The Gip is a great knife. I don't have a 710, but the five Benchmade knives I have are all outstanding.

I need to know where to sign up for the 12 step..myself.

Congrats on the new Benchmades hlpressley!

My first was a 940. Shortly after that first 940 I started buying all of the Benchmades that I liked and before I knew it I had every Benchmade that interested me. Now I wait for the next new design to come out and hope it's one I like. At the moment I'm EDC'ng my new 761...until they come out with the next one. The point is, Benchmades are so awesome that they cause otherwise normal people to become addicts....of high quality and smooth function. Welcome to the family.
