Love the Anthem
To my eyes, one of the best-looking knives I have ever seen and held. Excellent quality and balance. I suspect that in hard use the all-metal handle might be fatiguing to the hand, but I really don't expect to put this to hard use--kind of the equivalent of a "BBQ" 1911. The only detail I don't like is the clip. Between the chevron pattern and the shape of the clip's head, it looks like a snake's head to me. I may well remove the clip altogether and carry in the pocket. All in all, a really nice knife.

Benchmade- you get what you pay for lifelong customer satisfaction
Built to the highest standards. With Benchmade the more $ you spend the more time and effort was put into the knife. First was a blue mini grip at $93, then upgraded to the 940-1 at $270. Next was the 781 and by far my favorite. Next on the list a 3350 (mini infidel) and the 551-1 (grip with g-10 & cpm-20cv

Love it!
I love the look of this knife! It is lighter in hand than what the look and strength of it might suggest at a glance. Terrific feel and balance, size is great as an EDC for me- however, some may prefer a smaller knife for the office. The knife took some breaking in before the Axis lock would stop sticking- very different experience for me as my other Benchmade knives were smooth out of the box. Now that's it's broken in and has been lubed, it's fantastic! It's like a fidget spinner for adults:-). Click, snick, click, snick.... Additionally, the pocket clip has a gap at the front, so it does not sit securely in thinner-fabricated pockets. In thicker cotton pants or jeans it's fine. I'm sure it can be replaced with a standard steel clip, but then you lose the nice look of the finished, matching, titanium. Have done nothing more robust than cutting rope, slicing fruit and opening boxes, so I'm not going to be able to comment on overall durability yet. However, it's a Benchmade, and they haven't let me down yet. Yes, this knife is very expensive- I have firearms that cost less. Still, I'm glad I made the purchase!
