It's interesting how a thread about discovering a company that makes a lot of great knives inevitably contains a few posts that are more about dissatisfaction with the products of another specific company, especially when the OP stated that he has BM knives that he loves.
I only have one Benchmade and I don't have enough experience with it to complain. However, the thought of BM engaging in distasteful political activity is food for thought. Hopefully Spyderco will quietly encourage knife enthusiasts to unite in spite of all that divides us (because what is better than bonding over a mutual love of knives, right?). Let the other companies engage in vocal political activity.
Same here, I too have many more Spydies than BMs, similar ratio of 5:1. Somehow was never really drawn towards the popular & top selling BMs like their Griptilians & Bugouts, but I really like some of their models like the Warren Osborne 940 & Contego, and their excellent Pardue 531.
