Chris Dumm may not have been able to finish his review of the Benchmade 470-1 Emissary before he stepped down from the Editor-In-Chief role, but he had good things to say about it in his preview.
Since that time, Benchmade has released a larger version of this Warren Osborne designed assisted opener–the 477 Large Emissary. Now a new version is starting to show up at online retailers, the 477-1, its aluminum handle anodized in an aqua color, rather than the standard black. Video and full specs after the jump.
The video is from BladeHQ’s YouTube channel. The Truth About Knives does not endorse any specific retailer(s). Shop where you will.
