    Sheer poetry. I've got one for use, and one a low number first issue for collection.

    Great for off-side carry. Bad guy thinks he is going to grab my gun, this Mel Pardue Design comes out and make the point that I don't much care to share my guns with strangers. Strong design, extremely sharp (and holds its edge well!), reliable piece of equipment.

    Mine was issued in Iraq about 9 months ago and I've had it with me ever since. I was worried about the spring wearing out but it is going strong even after the sand and heat. I have not sharpened it and it still has a great edge. I have not used the locking device but the knife has never opened by mistake. It also has a hole in the bottom that is great for running some 550 cord to secure to your belt.

    Number one - it's a Benchmade. Number two - It's an auto. Number three - it's a knife with a good steel and an ambi release with safety.

    Was a gift from my Sheriff and I have used it to the point of abuse, A couple od strokes on my Lansky sharpemer and it's back. Easy to open and always sharp. Wouldn't leave home without it!

    Benchmade is the best made knife out there. I wouldn't carry anything else.

    I carry the same style benchmade knife, but the previous generation and it is still my best knife, and let me tell you, I got a-lot of knives.
