Since being given one of these by a friend, I have tried to find something I liked better, or that I liked at least as much, many times. I've bought other Benchmades, Spydercos, Mcustas, etc. and while I like some of the other knives, somehow the 707 still ends up being my favorite EDC companion.
It's light, it's thin, it's sturdy. The blade has plenty of belly, so much so that somehow this little knife always feels bigger than it really is to me.
It's just as at home in dress pants as it is in jeans, slim and light enough for light "gentleman's knife" duties, but sturdy enough to rely on for heavier tasks if necessary. Tip up carry with a nice (albeit not deep carry) clip and an axis lock make for easy access and opening.
My only complaints would be that it is a little boxy, so it could be even more comfortable to be used with the edges of the scales rounded down a bit and the other would be that the G10 inlay is sort of goofy. It doesn't look bad, but it doesn't improve the appearance any either and it doesn't really feel like it adds much grip, IMO.

Damn, hell of a friend to give you a Benchmade 707!
