The beginning of my addiction
Dylan B. on Jan 7, 2018

Received this knife from my brother in law about 5 years ago. up until that point i had never carried a pocket knife. This knife changed that all for me. I now have owned well over 15 different benchmades and i still carry this one from time to time. Great product, excellent manufacturer, and always up for the task

This knife has had the longest pocket time out of my 30+ knives while I only carry about 20-25; although it has some quirks for one thing it is very sharp but it's a little difficult to maintain at least for me the tempering on the steel is perfect and the handle is true to it's name not once has it slipped while I was cutting. I've used it on my land (mainly to cut twine off hay and open feed bags) a lot and it is still very sharp the pocket clip is what wears and if something breaks there is all ways the warranty and it is the best warranty out there.
