Light and solid!...
This Benchmade Osborne Design folding knife is a meticulously manufactured instrument. The machining is exquisite. All mating surfaces match flawlessly and the mechanisms slide smoothly in your hand. The weight is deceptively light. You can barely feel it in your pocket. However, as the assist-open snaps the blade quickly open and the axis lock closes, the Emissary feels solid in your fist.
A beautiful design and flawless in its execution, Benchmade made a Gentlemen's knife that few if any could match for the price. Maybe out of the price range for some, but if you want a pocket knife you can pass down to your kids, this would be the one. Benchmade's LifeSharp program will help you keep this knife maintained for many years to come.

I was given this knife for my birthday two years ago and I've used it daily since. The life sharp program is really nice, just takes a couple weeks. As for the knife itself, it is super fast to open and also is feels like an automatic. The finish is super silky and I wouldn't have it any other way. This is a perfect EDC knife and because of that, I plan to buy another.
