    Thinking of spoiling myself for my upcoming birthday.

    I love how light G-10 is and the look of this knife caught my eye. I also hear it talked about alot as a perfect EDC knife. Thoughts?

    Also for the blade guys... does Benchmade do custom work? IE this setup but in D2?

    I like it. I think you can custom order from Benchmade and D2 shouldn't be a problem. Pix when in!
    It has a very argentum look to it...

    It appears the custom option doesn't provide the grey color with blue liners.

    I am gonna try and give them a call and see what they say.

    I honestly don’t know. Sorry. I just remembered you posting about this knife and it caught my attention in the case.

    I’d like to suggest a Break Your Benchmade for the 2A party. We all show up with one or more Benchmade knives, a 12 pack or a bottle, and drink happily while we smash them and drink and talk about guns. Then mail the box of smashed knives and broken parts back to Benchmade with a big middle finger drawing inside.

    Or you could sell them eBay and hurt Benchmades bottom line. If I recall that’s how gun owners broke smith and Wesson in the late 90s. No one would buy new because all the shops were saturated with used smith and Wesson

    Taking this a step further:
    Return to Benchmade with big middle finger drawing
    Include request for warranty repair
    Receive repaired items
    Host 2nd Break your Benchmade for 2A party
    Repeat until boredom eventually sets in

    So suggestions on a flipper that’s got G-10 handles, no serrations and D2 steel?

    I’ve been looking at zero tolerance.

    I fancy a sebenza myself. Framelock >> Liner lock.

    And as someone who was a knife buff for years, the sebenza I bought has not left my pocket in 5 years. I've sold off most of my other blades.

    Very nice, I had a chance to handle one and loved it. Build quality is parallel to none. If it had a wave I'd be all over it.
