    I remember not caring for the 710's aesthetics but buying it anyway, for the Axis lock. I have the D2 version. It grew on me and quickly became my favorite folder. I never picked another of the later 710 offerings because I was too busy buying other Benchmade models I liked/wanted. I'd buy another one now if the price was reasonable (well below $200).

    Looks like seller's remorse to me but I wouldn't mind one in 20CV or S90V.

    If I remember right,you said it was the only Benchmade that had a centered blade.

    I'd love to see the 710 make a comeback either in a limited edition or as an updated standard model.

    For flavours; a nice higher end stainless or tool steel with Micarta or layered G-10 scales to keep the price down would be nice

    I've never owned a 710, and now that I've come around on uncoated D2 I'd love to own any version from a plain Jane on up to something like 20CV or M390. A fresh run would be exciting. :)

    Yes - just bring back the 710. Doesn't matter what steels or handle materials. I also don't mind an XL version with a 5" blade :p

    That's true. Then I would be happy about a 710-1, a 710 without recurve and possibly next to the original 710.
    Just dreaming.

    They already made a 710-1. M390 blade, lightly crowned spine, available in satin or DLC as the 710DLC-1. 250 of each version, pretty sure it was just a KW exclusive. And it definitely had a recurve!

    For a new blade shape, they'd probably use a new model number, like the Grip being 550/551/552/553 for sheepsfoot/drop/Ritter/tanto blade shapes. So I guess... 711? Maybe they should skip straight to 712 (so long as there's a 710 accompanying!).

    Edit - talking about the 55x blade shapes reminded me, I'd also be down for a 722 or 723 limited run, especially a 723 in something other than an SBK configuration. But I think that'll get a lot less traction than a 710, hah

    Skywalker31, thanks for the explanations. Then a modell 711 (712) would be great.

    Sprint run would be okay. But what I REALLY want is to bring it back as a standard model and keep producing it.

    Would love to see a sprint run of the 710 model

    Benchmade, a 710 LE would be a strong argument for why 2021's going to be a better year than 2020... just sayin'...
