    I'm very pleased with this knife design. It is quite possibly the finest production knife I've ever used. The blade geometry lends itself to many tasks well and it is an awesome edge holding piece. It's tip is a slow taper to fine and may be slightly fragile but is excellent for piercing. This is a beautiful smooth push cutter. My new every day blade.
    The alignment is even and the lock-up is firm with no noticable side to side play. It is a chunky comfortable grip just the way I like it. It's action is positive, strong, fast and sounds of quality. There is no hollow clunk in this piece. Snap and click come to mind. Of course the spring assist Axis lock is the bomb.
    One feature I enjoy is the removeable forward aluminum scales. Two screws and you are in to clean and lube/inspect. No need to disassemble the entire scale and clip portions.
    Yep, we have a winner here in this 581 knife.
    We also have a winner in Cutlery Shoppe. Us as consumers know of the value that is in the vendor. Cutlery Shoppe has proven their worth to me and I will always shop here first from here on out. Customer service defined...well done all around, Benchmade and Cutlery Shoppe!
