More info please. Beautiful!
After my own experiences I'm kinda surprised to see the overwhelmingly glowing reviews of the bench made brand. I edc carried a mini-barrage 585sbk on and off for about 8 years. I say on and off as the knife had to be sent back to bench made twice for repairs, it's currently on its way back for its third trip as we speak. I don't baby my knives but I don't beat them either and the knife had so much blade play while locked up that it wasn't even safe to use.
Keep in mind that the other knife that shared edc duties during this time frame was a ~$25 CRKT Point guard that hasn't had any problems at all in the same time frame, same user, same duties. Truthfully I also believe that the no-name steel of the CRKT blade held an edge almost as well as the benchmades 154cm blade but seemed to sharpen much easier.
For the price of the two I would say the CRKT is a superior value, maybe a better knife overall. That being said, I'm looking for another knife and I'll be looking at syderco or ZT this time around.
Funny post Nodak!
