  1. I love seeing the new models roll out. That barrage is pretty sleek looking. Especially with that tanto point. Liking the Nim Cub II as well.

    It’s nice to see models that are functional. Benchmade has always tried to do that, instead of the makers who seem to cater specifically to collectors while still claiming functionality.

  2. Can anyone tell me if the rumor I heard about Benchmade is correct. Is it true that Benchmade is doing away with their Distributors and handling everything themselves.
