The Benchmade 808 is a model that debuted at the Shot Show 2015. The knife sports a contoured black G-10 will a terrific ergonomic design. Pocket clip can be mounted for right or left pocket carry. The blade has a thumb oval opener that makes the knife extremely easy to open one-handed. Combine the opening hole with the ambidextrous AXIS lock that is patented by Benchmade and you have a home run!
The blade on the Benchmade Loco 808 is a 3.68" long blade with a lot of curvature and cutting power. The blade steel that Benchmade choose for the Loco is American-made S30V steel. The blade steel is made by Crucible Metalworks and heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of 58-60.
The handle is robust and thick .67" black G-10, fully machine contoured for a positive grip. The pivot, lock studs, barrel spacers and lanyard hole have a unique custom machined features. These little touches really upgrade the knife considerably. Large lanyard hole in the handle. Completing this knife is the reversible pocket clip mounted for tip up carry.

Very nicely done, blade is somewhat beefier than I expected, but overall I am very happy with my purchase. I use it as a daily carry knife. I can say I was a little taken back at how heavy the whole knife was, but after a few days of wearing it I don't even notice it any more.
The grip is easy to hold onto when wet, blade is nice and sharp, my only complaint is that I would like to see a carbide point at the butt end of the handle, only as a glass breaker.
Very happy with my knife, and I would use KnifeArt again.
