Rating: 5 stars
Hey guys! Welcome back to Knifehog.com. Addison here and today I’ll be reviewing one of Benchmade’s newest and most impressive tactical folders: the 477 Emissary.
Boasting a Warren Osborne design, this new addition to the Emissary series includes a few of the same features of its predecessors, but with a tweeks. This knife measures 8″ in length and weighs only 3.59 ounces, which makes it a perfect EDC. This knife’s blade is 3.45″ long and is constructed of S30V premium stainless steel, which makes it incredibly tough and able to handle things like cutting thick rope and hard plastic tubing. The handle of this knife is made of CNC aluminum and features a deep and shallow finger groove for your fingers to wrap around it comfortably. Just like it’s predecessor the Emissary 470-1, this knife features an Axis-Assist system that deploys the blade very quickly and locks the blade up very tightly. To open the blade using the assist system, just give the ambidextrous thumb studs on either side of the blade a slight push and the perfectly centered blade will deploy. When the blade is opened or closed , you can slide the safety mechanism into the locked position securing the blade in its current position. This knife features a reversible pocket clip for easy storage on your jeans or camping bag.
Overall, the Benchmade 477 Emissary is definitely a fantastic addition to the Emissary series. It’s extremely tough and durable blade fused with the ergonomic handle make it a very discreet yet powerful knife that you would want to carry with you at all times. The Axis-Assist opening system on this knife guarantees consistent and safe deployment as well. There is not one bad thing I have to say about this knife and highly recommend it those who are looking for a powerful yet lightweight EDC.
We here at Knifehog give this knife a perfect score of 5 out of 5 stars.
