    new service pricing structure

    Yea I know, the mini adamas looks pretty cool but I doubt I'll pull the trigger. I just bought another knife from another big manufacturer and the value is much better and they still offer blade replacement at a reasonable price. The last benchmade I bought was on black friday from a local...

    new service pricing structure

    I see both sides of it. From their view I doubt there is much profit from swapping a blade for $30. Between the cost of the blade, paying a guy to swap it, and shipping it back it cant be much. On the other hand one of the benefits of Benchmade was the option to buy a replacement blade at a good...

    Another Lifesharp Mulligan

    Let me start off by saying that I really like Benchmade as a company, I have 23 Benchmades in my collection, and I feel like for the most part they are a quality American company. In the past I could send in a knife or 2 and get it back with a pretty good edge, a new clip, new screws, and...

    Received Prototype 535-1901 Bugout

    That’s a cool little gem. If I was you I would keep it. But if you don’t like it I’m sure someone would take it off your hands.

    Glad to hear that! Now you’ve got me all warm and fuzzy inside wondering what’s coming out next year.

    Benchmade is CLEANING HOUSE!

    Makes me wonder how much sales are down for benchmade. It's been a tough year for the company. I realize that the majority of models discontinued are combo edges but thats a big list. I'm surprised to see the presidio family go under. The otf's must not be selling good either. They are just too...

    Benchmade is CLEANING HOUSE!

    That would be cool if they moved away from S30v for their premium models. As long as it doesn’t come with a $50 price increase. I’d be ok with 10 bucks though. They are already overpriced compared to other companies that manufacture knives with similarly materials.

    Announcing the NEW 381 Aller Fumee!

    Yea, I get a kick out of that guy. He's pretty funny. I like him because he speaks his mind and seems like a straight shooter. I wish I could have a beer with him one day. Lol.

    Is this normal? Your thoughts on LifeSharp please? Reference pics

    I haven’t really been using lifesharp anymore. The last time I sent in my 940 it came back in worse condition. They absolutely ground the mess out of it. One bevel was way wider than the other, it came back with a weird scratch on the aluminum that I don’t think was there before, it wasn’t...

    Buying American - I must confess...

    All these folks saying "I'm done with Benchmade!!!!!!" Yet here they are on Benchmade subforum. Lol. I could care less what politician they support. It's their right. If they make a good knife that I like, I will gladly give them my money to own it. Just bought a vector and that knife is...

    Benchmade customer service

    Ha. I’ll be the first to admit I’m a benchmade fanboy. It’s funny all these folks saying “I’m done with benchmade!” When we know they are secretly still buying and using those sweet knives. Benchmades are just irresistible.

    Have knife retailers and distributors started dropping Benchmade knives?

    1. This will unlikely hurt benchmade in the long run. Every time I go to my local gun store there are a handful of people lusting over them in the glass case. One of the salesman Saturday was explaining the benchmade debacle to a customer that was looking. The salesman said this is blown out of...

    No more free Deep Carry clips...

    Yikes. Between the bad QC, the recent outrage, and now this, I feel bad for the new CEO guy. Is it just deep carry I wonder or all clips? And does Kai ship free clips? This is bad timing for bad press.

    Man uses a Benchmade to kill a rabid coyote in Georgia

    And that’s reason number 237 why I always carry a benchmade. Never know when I’m going to encounter a rabid coyote.

    Are there authorized Benchmade service dealers?

    Last week I stopped by my local premium plus dealer to check out a knife. I saw an employee replacing a clip on a Benchmade. I looked closer and there was a plastic tackle box that said Benchmade on it that was full of benchmade clips labeled for specific models. It also had screws, maybe some...

    Real deal?

    Got this in a trade and since I almost always buy from authorized dealers I’m curious if this is authentic. It functions smooth and feels solid like a Benchmade. But that grind line jumps out at me, none of my other benchmades look like that. Also the thumb hole seems to be smaller than...

    Lifesharp question

    One very quick shot of an assembler tapping on a table in the factory to field video on their YouTube channel. And I believe I've seen them do it on some of their Facebook videos as well.

    Is this acceptable from $200 knife?

    Wow that's bad!!! Unfortunately that happens too often lately. Maybe a Friday afternoon knife. Anyway maybe call benchmade and send them pics or a link to this thread. Maybe they will bump you to the front of the line and get it taken care of quick. Even though that's a poor excuse for a $200...
