Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: Handle Feel, None
I just bought the 583sbk knife for an edc. While I do agree with the other reviews that the handle quality may not be up to the 581 you cannot expect the same quality at the price difference. The 581 is more a gentleman's edc but harder to sharpen while the 583 is more of a military knife not meant to be kept pretty. Overall I have no problem with the knife. Benchmade has and always will make a top notch product.

Nice assist action...EDC...Good size and weight.
I bought this as a Christmas gift and found the locking slider was a bit rough in it's function. Once fully unlocked, the assist works like a charm. Very nice feel and size. Handle sides are plastic and I would have preferred a non-slip rubberized material. Also the Valox handles sound hollow (a little cheap sounding for a knife of this cost). Overall a nice EDC.

Great knife overall
The first thing I really enjoy about this knife is the ease of use. The assisted opening has a quick response and the Axis lock is always a plus. I also like how you can lock the blade in the open position which prevents any accidental pressure on the Axis lock lever which will unlock the blade prematurely. The sharpness of the blade is everything to be expected. As with most reviews I have seen on this knife, the handle leaves a little to be desired. The "cheap" feel of the plastic doesn't leave you with much reassurance that it will hold up during any kind of shock. Overall, it's a great knife. If you are looking for something that is quick on the draw and will cut through just about anything while retaining an edge, this knife will serve you well.
