Quality knife from a trusted name

I really like this knife. You can't go wrong with a Benchmade and the 477 Emissary is a quality product. The knife has a decent weight to it and has great ergonomics. The picture appears to show some jimping like grooves where the thumb would rest. This is more aesthetic than anything else. The deployment is smooth as butter and surprisingly fast. The AXIS lock is amazing as well. And as far as safeties go, this one is perfectly designed. The only thing I did NOT like about this knife was the chalky feel to the handle. I assume Benchmade chose this material for added grip, but it feels like a chalkboard in your hand. Overall, a great knife!
