  • Benchmade knives

    Anyone have any feedback on this brand? I bought a mini-griptillion (sp?) at the gunshow this weekend and it seems pretty nice so far.

    I have a HK/Benchmade auto and I'm very happy with it. Fast, tough, easy to deploy, holds an edge well, and reasonably priced.

      I have owned a Benchmade "Stryker" for years and carried it on duty till I got an Emerson "Commander". The Benchmade is a great knife that holds and edge very well. Now, I have heard (read about, actually) the newer knives do no t hold an edge very well, but I have no first hand knowledge of this.

        I own several Benchmade knives, both auto and not. Very pleased with the quality and ability to hold an edge, but a little pricey.

        Of course, you get what you pay for...

          My brother was into knives/swords pretty heavily(knew the different kinds of metals, forging processes ect.) before joining the Marine Corp. and he is a big fan of Benchmade. He gave me his little Benchmade pocket knife(no clue what model) and its pretty sweet.
          Yippee-ki-yay, motherf*****.

            Benchmade is a good company. They used to make or design (can't remember which) knives for Emerson.

              Benchmade built Ernst Emerson designed knives before Emerson took off. The Benchmade "Stryker" model is a close copy of the Emerson CQC-6 and 7 series of knives.

              I asked a friend who is big into collecting knives, and he say Benchmade took care of the problem regarding edge wear and the newer knives are rock solid and hold an edge with the best of the "custom" knife manufaturers like Emerson or Strider.

                I love my Benchmade Striker. The company is great when it comes to getting your knife worked on. I had to send mine in to be fixed, bent the lock and could not close the knife with just my hands. No charge to fix it.

                      Benchmade has been my first choice for combat folders since 1995, only other knife ill carry is a Gerber Applegate Fairbairn.
