I have a Benchmade, got it from Straight River Knives and it was their last. My friend got a Jaguar and both of the rivits broke within 3 weeks. If they would replace the rivits it wouldn't have been that bad but the only butterfly knives with any warrante at all were the benchmades. I'd suggest trying to find one from a private dealer or trade for it.
Oops, forgot ot add something: a good place to look for dealers and knives is on a message board. I looked for a company for quite a while and gave up. Then I posted a request and within a day, I got an e-mail...

Its to bad that some knife manufacturer doesn't see the the interest in a good quality butterfly knife.It seems Benchmade was the only one out there making a good quality one.Seems like a bad business decision to stop producing them in quanity.Thanks for the replies,R.S.
