    My UPS driver didn’t carry a knife. After a little teasing (and some comments about the horrible incident down in Miami), I gifted him a folder. Nothing special, but it was enough to get him going. Figured I’d slowly warm him up to the Kin. Less than a week later, he’s showing me his new Benchmade. I fear for his wallet after he delivers my grab bags.

    Too many to count—I heartily recommend it. Often better than getting another for myself.:cool:

    Congrats to all who have experienced it.:thumbsup:

    Mine are not exactly given away.
    They were stored in my brother's car trunk while he was away, parked in his indoor garage.
    I was informed early December that someone broken into his garage and stole the knives.
    1. CGFBM snakeskin micarta
    2. Custom Shop bowie Hellrazor no cbt
    3. Hellrazor II

    I was speechless when heard that as the first 2 were my favorite.
    3 weeks passed, the pain get easier :)
    In light of Christmas spirit, may they be of any help to whoever took them.

    Christmas spirit?

    I hope that they cut themselves, horrifically, with your stolen knives.


    Merry Christmas!

    For many years before my BF days I carried a Vic Classic, I would by 5 each Christmas and gift 4, and keep a new one for myself .working as a welder usually wasn't much left of the old one.
    A few folders the last few years but the only Busse I've gifted is a steak knife and SYKCO 311

    Have given knives for years to friends and family. A few I wish I would have kept. Brother in law got my last Rat Trap a few years back and father in law got a thin nick years ago. Have told them both since then that if they ever feel a need to get rid of them that I want first dibs.
