After carrying the regular M4 810BK for about a year of EDC, my biggest gripe was how the coating looked – scratched, faded, and very unappealing… You mix that with the painted pocket clip (which at that point looked like crap too), and the knife looked very poor. This was purely aesthetics of course. Performance of the M4 was great, however, I always worried about the possibilities of rust – especially where I live… When I saw that KW had a uncoated M390 version of my favorite knife, I damn near shat myself. – THANK YOU KW for offering this blade, and thank you BM for letting it happen! The 1401 hit the nail on the head with all the right materials and aesthetics *** KW – As long as you keep offering uncoated exclusives/LE’s, I will be a loyal customer for life*** Thanks again, Jo
Beautiful Exclusive

I recently went with the Knifeworks Exclusive 810-1401 over the regular 810 Contego and couldn't be happier. Knife arrived PERFECT. Rock solid lockup, perfect blade centering, fit and finish is just perfect. I purchased this 810-1401 personalized with my name because I knew I was going to keep it for life. I'm on the fence of ordering another one so I can EDC one! Excellent job Knifeworks and Benchmade! Thank you for a beautiful knife.
Solid knife.

I'm not going to leave a review telling you how good the knife looks, as you can see that in the pictures. i bought this from the first batch 2 years ago i think it was, and the knife is still holding up wonderfully. i havent had to do anything other than a regular cleaning and oiling and its still just as good as the day i bought it. its held up well, and is worththe money.

I've had own and have handled tons of knifes so cheap as well as full custom... When I got my contego in hand, I could not believe how beautiful this knife was, how bold look, smooth it was in operation, I mean for the cost the is a wonderful piece to have in my collection. It's definitely not a knife I want to beat up on, but if I'm going out to chill or hangout this will definitely be in my rotation to carry. Thumbs up BM and Knife Works.
One badass knife.

I have wanted a Contego for a couple years now, but never could afford one until recently. While doing research I kept coming across this model, but thought it was gonna be a lot more, and harder to get. Fortunately I was mistaken and bought one as soon as I could, and I'm glad things work out because this knife was made for me. This is my first "premium" blade and I feel it is worth every penny. Obviously comes razor sharp, but seems to have more potential by design. Knife Works definitely kicks ass for carrying such a beautiful blade. I ordered it on Friday morning and received it Monday. and shipping was free. Highly recommend this knife, and this company.
