not sure about the thumbstuds. they don’t laser engrave the patent information on newer knives due to the patent having expired a little while back. what is the date that’s printed on the end of the box?
Looks nearly identical in terms of the etchings other than there is no "R" registered mark. Also is benchmade stone washing the blade after the etch? blurry at any angle except straight on. my seller got some packing glue on the right scale ;p
must be a BM since the axis is super dirty with the same dust as my 943
