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.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.
