    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromGreat knife I have many knives, but this one is by far my favorite. Has a nice solid feel, and a blade that keeps a nice sharp edge.

    by fromThe Perfect Pocket Knife This is with me everywhere I go. Love this knife! Stays sharp forever it seems and if it does get a little dull just send it to BM and they will sharpen it and send it back for Shipping and Handling Only!! Open assist makes it perfect for one hand opening. Can't say it enough, Love this Knife, get one today and you won't be disappointed.

    by fromGreat Knife! I replaced a broken CRKT knife with this one and haven't looked back. Very comfortable, smooth assisted opening, great locking mechanism and razor sharp. The blade seems like it will be very durable. If I had one criticism it would be that the plastic grips add a bit of bulk to the knife for EDC, but it's not a drawback at all.

    by fromTop quality When I bought this knife I was looking for something lightweight and lockable. I also wanted something that was well-made and durable. The Benchmade 585 meets all those requirements and has the added benefit of being operable with one hand. I'm not an avid "knife guy" so it took a little while to practice opening and closing using one hand. But it's a convenient feature when you find yourself carrying a bunch of stuff in one hand/arm. You can also easily lock and unlock the blade with your thumb. That was a key feature for me because I wanted to avoid a blade that could open accidentally, however unlikely that may be. Another advantage is that you can easily modify the 585. For example, it has a removable belt clip in case you don't find yourself using that particular feature. And without the clip it becomes a more comfortable "pocket" knife. You can also remove the thumb assist knob in the blade. A hole in one end of the casing also allows for various things to be attached, presumably using nylon string, though I haven't tried that yet. Finally, the knife just feels good in your hand. I tested a bunch of different knives at the REI shop before deciding on this one, in part due to the way it feels, both when it's closed and open. There is a good balance in weight between the blade and handle so it never feels lopsided or clumsy. This is a really well-made and practical knife, I highly recommend it.

    by fromGreat Ultility Tool The opening of the blade is smooth and swift, quick and at the ready. The safety lock is nicely tucked away on the side opposite the blade and is useful in holding the blade back. Overall the knife is a great tool its ability to be at the ready in less that a second is great for when you need it to be ready.

    by fromSimply Awesome Another masterpiece from Benchmade! I have owned several of their knives over the years and can say it is impossible to match the quality at the price. This knife has instantly become my choice for Every Day Carry usage. The spring assist opening mechanism is flawless and is backed by Benchmade's Axis locking system. Thank You REI for carrying this product.

    by fromGreat Knife I finally got tired of buying low quality knives so I decided to invest in a Benchmade. This is an awesome knife! The spring assist on it is very smooth and makes it super easy and fast to open. Benchmades "upside down" clip design is extremely useful and makes drawing and opening the knife quick and painless. Most knives you have to draw, flip over, then open. Not the case with Benchmades and that is one of the features I really like about their knives.Benchmade's Axis lock is an excellent design and works great at keeping this knife locked in with absolutely no wiggle at all. Closing is very simple as well, just have to fight off the spring a little bit, but its no big deal. The blade is very sharp even after heavy use. When I first got this knife, I felt it looked a little bit small, but after some use, it is the perfect size for every day carry in your pocket. The clip is still strong and secures the knife to the pocket very well. I like the ambidextrous feature as I am a lefty, its nice to know some companies actually remember we exist. haha. The knife also features a safety lock to either lock it open or closed. I never really use it, but its a cool feature.Overall, its a beautiful well made knife with only one downfall....the PRICE! Definitely wait till this thing goes on sale.

    by fromOne Serious Blade This blade is fantastic. If you are looking a a solid, sharp, every day carry knife, this one is it. I also have the Benchmade 530; while the 530 is a great, lightweight knife, I am always afraid of bending the blade - great for slicing, but leave the serious work to the 585.
