The design is growing on me. I wish I could see just how thin it is. Also wish BM was running the steel a bit harder.
I was "lucky" enough to get a pretty uneven factory grind so I took that as an opportunity to de-tanto-ify the knife. I'm pretty pleased with the results.
I am by no means a professional, but it wasn't all that difficult. Getting a polished edge on my Altitude took me more time than reprofiling the Bailout. It took me a little over an hour using a whetstone, sharpmaker and a leather strop. I haven't really beat on the knife yet but I can say Benchmade's 3V is much easier to work with/softer than their S90V. Hopefully that means it will be tougher.Nice job on the profile. I actually thought about doing the same just not confident enough in my skills.
If this Is true,not only I will cancel the order but I Will literally stop buying their products. They are a knife company,not a gadget Company. This Is serious.
