"Contego" is Spanish for "protect" or "shield." Which is ironic since my first order of business, were I to own Bechmade's Contego Folding Knife, would be to use it to tear through others' supposed shields. Boxes from Amazon. Product packaging. Taped corners of wrapping paper covering what Santa Mama got me for Christmas. I think the knife's 3.98" blade would also serve me well as a means of transporting tater tots from my plate to my mouth. After all, Benchmade says it's made "with toughness and durability for any occasion."

Others who actually own a Contego Folding Knife give it glowing online reviews. Even the guy who believes only a fixed blade knife can serve as a true weapon of self defense gives it 5 stars for EDC an urban setting where carrying a folding knife makes more sense. Sentiments of its high quality construction and easy handling echo throughout most of the other reviewers' 2 cents.

Contego traits and specs are as follows:

  • AXIS locking mechanism
  • Reverse tanto blade with ambidextrous thumb-stud openers
  • CPM-M4 steel blade with gray or black Cerakote (62-64HRC)
  • Textured G10 handle scales with stainless steel back spacer, full liners and reversible deep-carry tip-up pocket clip
  • Carbide glass breaker
  • Overall length: 9.28"
  • Blade length: 3.98"; Blade thickness: 0.156": Handle thickness: 0.550"

The Schrade SCHA5B M.A.G.I.C. folding knife listing neglects to explain its M.A.G.I.C. acronym, so at first I thought maybe it didn't stand for anything, that the caps and dots are just there for their imposing, visual...
