You are correct, it is a 710D2. It just seems so small compared to the Rukus. I hate not being able to carry it.
As noted in my reply above, I was carrying a Benchmade Rukus...a real monster of a blade, but as I was reading all of your posts I read one that listed a website that explains whats legal to carry in everyone's neck of the woods. Checking out Kansas, I find that my favorite knife is a quarter inch too long. I've been carrying illegal for the past two years. So, yesterday I run out and purchase a Benchmade 710D2...a very nice knife...but, it isn't a Rukus. So, today I've been all over the internet looking for the mini-rukus, only all sites stated no longer available or discontinued...sux. So tonight, I'm messing around and start searching again, and I found a site that actually has a few of them in stock. I've now got the mini on my way...yeah...!!!

I carry a Spyderco Paramilitary.
I just got my Spyderco Bob Lum Chinese in the mail today, it is going to be my off word EDC knife, I normally carry a G10 Tyrade but I am about to send it back to Kershaw to repair the clip and sharpen the blade.

Harbor freight special... Sturdy, sharp and holds an edge nicely.
rson63: I used to have an auto like the one in your picture just under the bowie. I loved that knife... Still can't figure out who ended up stealing it from me! lol
usually it's one of those 2. I have a few more, but these 2 are my faves. One is a Spyderco Endura 4, and the other is a Applegate-Fairbairn Covert. I love em both...

I have quite a few knives, but usually carry a KaBar Dozier folder, 3" spear point. Sometimes when I'm out camping I carry an Endura 4 FFG (we can only have 3.5" here, so it has to be for recreational use only), sometimes a Buck or Case or Boker stockman, but my Buck 110 is a big favorite. Technically too long, but you see them everywhere here, and as long as you aren't playing the fool LEOs generally don't blink an eye at them.
i have a drawer full of knives! growing up on a farm i have carried a knife of some type since a kid! in KY you get a concealed deadly weapons license so its not just for a gun it includes knives and such too!! so when i got it 9 years ago i started carrying a benchmade auto(afo, mini reflex) but with a little training i came to learn how to open a reg folder just as quick! and with the autos if you pocket carry you have to clean all the time!! so i switched to a(first gen) blackhawk crucible! this is a hunker of a knife and fills good in the hand!! it is my edc and sd knife only! at work a carry a razor knife of some sort(always finding a new one i like) and use it for all things cutting but flesh!! then i found the blackhawk bewarned and bought one! lighter then the crucible and just a wicked ass blade(warncliff style blade) great slasher! all of my benchmade autos and reg folders have tooken back seats to these 2 knives! the most comfortable and best i have carried! i have a tdi as well but dont carry no more! but wanted another fixed blade to carry as a second knife when not working for retension purposes! and enter the tops california cobra! this thing is wicked fix blade and it is on the way!! should get it by this friday! so the 2 blakhawks (mostly the crucible) and the tops cal cobra will be my primary carries! and a bad habit of mine is that when i find a gun or knife i really like i get 2 of them for a spare just in case( you never know) so i have 2 of the crucibles and the bewarneds and if the cal cobra works out will have another in a few weeks!! sorry so long winded guys but i am a big advocate of knives and knife SD! it is another great tool to have and a lesser lethal option then a gun! and i can always have a knife on me no matter where i go but a court room! so i truly beleive they are a high priority in my everyday carry and self defense!!!! stay safe out there guys!
