I took a 710 apart before and remember that is was a PITA to put back together.

it should just be a basic disassembling/reassembling of a normal benchmade knife... if so, then this video may help...



also, you will probably have to remove the thumb stud. To do this find some semi-thick leather (like 1/8" thick) and wrap it around the stud on each side (if it is the screw on type). then you can grip each side with pliers and unscrew. this is the only way I have found that will not damage the thumb studs.

So you only postioned it once and did the entire edge?

After shaving a few thumb studs, even through the tape I now take them off. For Benchmade you need 2 - Torx T6 drivers. They are not that tight.

Here is good video on how to disassemble/assemble Benchmades. He is putting custom scales on but it is the same.

Video Link

A few tips:
Disassembly: Remove the pivot screw almost, then pull back on the axis lock to remove all the way.

Assembly: loosely assemble all scale/back spacer screws. Put the pivot screw in one side, pull back on the axis lock to install first washer. Then the blade, last washer. The key is the washer + blade will only line up 99% without pulling back on the axis lock. You have to pull it back to get them in. Tighten pivot screw snug, with paper shims to center blade. Tighten up all other screws.
