    You are making assumptions that some of us have not done that research. You bought a decent knife at a decent price so be happy. The posts about benchmade has ZERO to do with you so there is no reason to get wound up about them.
    True. Im not even worked up, i dont care about benchmade, its a tool not a lifestyle choice. Honestly im way more excited to get the leatherman wave plus i ordered. It just cracks me up that people will act all virtuous over something they do without... but you mention their cell phone or laptop or car and then there are reasons to be a hypocrite.

    That is a valid point but some of us are pretty aware of where our money goes.

    My SHTF tool is a leatherman also.

    I honestly didnt know about their cutting up guns. But when i read into it, it seems like they tried to do a solid to help local pd. People got butthurt, and they apologized and have not done it again.... its not like they cut up guns all day there. And backing their democrats was trying to push thier own agenda, interstate knife travel or some shit.... of course a knife maker is gonna back whoever supports their agenda. I really wanted a half face blades shpos but i cant get my hands on one yet, ive been fucked more than a few times on ebay by sellers bidding to up prices and when they win it they just relist. His site is a bag of sold out dissapointment always.....

    The secondary knife market has been a shitshow for a few years and only seems to be getting worse. Find a reputable knife dealer and work with them to get what you want.

    My sole comment about what Benchmade did is this - actions have consequences, even those actions only done once. We as consumers determine where our money goes and actions affect our decisions.

    Since @tomcatmv mentioned CRKT have you looked at this knife as an option to the SHPOS?

    Ahahahahaha. What i have noticed since i started researching some knives to buy, fucking knife people are wierd. Just on face value, that karambit add says it has mystical technology and it comes to life when trouble is afoot? Who the fuck wrote that? Gandalf has a second job making knife descriptions for crkt? Im honestly a little afraid of owning a knife with so much free willed agression. What if my mom stubs her toe and it interprets that as trouble afoot and comes to life all karambiting as karambits do lmfao. For the last decade i have carried lightning otf knives, they are cheap so i can give them away and they are work horses. I dont have to feel mad if i break one or chip the point cause i buy them like 4 at a time. I just like the shape and craftsmanship of the shpos, im not looking to become a knife wierdo.

    The design of that knife is interesting and Joe Caswell knows his stuff. I only suggested because the other knife is a karmabit and the CRKT is better built and cheaper.

    The “knife people” you referenced are probably not collectors. They have a knife fetish and contributes to their being weird.

    Yeah, i just was watching some stuff on the youtubes and noticed that vs the gun channels these people are strange. Not specifically the knife makers or whatever... but that subculture is not for me. I like gun people, we all love safety. I watched a dude get "accidentally stabbed" by his wife like 5 times and she was joking about it.... nope. I have a fighting knife, its a kabar. If i gotta go knife dude... im channeling my inner Brock Sampson.

    I can say the hardware is kinda cheap, the locktighted screws holding the clip on stripped Right out at the heads. I ended up drilling them out and removing the clip completely. I have a mac tools precision bit set and know i used the correct torques bit. Its light as fuck though and i dont even notice it in my pocket. The clip was not comfy at all... just an in the way afterthought. That either dug into my palm or made my fingers not quite grip it correctly....

    When im doing mechanic work alot of times my knife ends up in my wallet pocket so i can get to it easy, so to be fair i never use a pocket clip.

    Btw, hope that thing doesn't stab you in the dick.
    It probably won’t. The only one I’ve used if you didn’t hit the trigger just right the blade would get tripped up and get stuck only a little ways out the handle. I don’t remember the model but it was a benchmade out the front.
