Could I ask for some U.S.A. wide help :)

Mar 20, 1999
Hi all !!

I have been looking for a full set of NIB Benhcmade Panthers. I've posted on the Wanted board with no success yet(but there is still hope), and have called every online seller I know of. If anyone has an idea as to where I could find them I would appreciate it. Maybe a local store near you still has some in stock ? or you know of a site that I do not ?

Any help would be great, thanks.

Here are the model numbers for reference:

All the knives in the world go round and round, round and round, round and round...DAMN, one of them took my wallet !!! :)

I just did a search on "BM401" and found the following page:


I didn't find anything using BM405 as the search criteria.

You may be halfway there. Good luck with your search. I know what it's like, I've been waiting and looking for a few elusive Spydie products and haven't turned anything up yet.


Is that thing shar...OW!
Hi Ron,

I was just curious in terms of which Spydie product you considered elusive

Not to start a huge list
, but I've been waiting for one of the Zowada folders, the Spydie wrench, and a plain edge pink Delica for the SO.

I've heard that they started to ship the Zowadas, but then they were supposedly sent back and I haven't heard anything else yet. I've been patiently waiting for the wrench because my birthday is in a few weeks and when the SO asked what I wanted, the choice was simple.
Knowing what you want is one thing, putting one in my grubby paw is another. Well, our anniversary is in October and Christmas will be here before you know it. Two more chances to get my goodies before the end of the year.

I've seen at least one pic of a plain edge pink Delica, but I haven't found any collecting dust waiting to be bought yet. The new release being only serrated bummed the SO out. I've been trying to "convert" her and this would certainly help.

Patience grasshopper!


Is that thing shar...OW!
Edgesmith Cutlery, in Montgomery, Alabama, recently had some Panthers in stock. He probably hasn't sold them yet. I'm not sure what the exact model numbers are. If you want to call him and ask, the phone number is (334) 279-8758. Tell him I sent you, and ask for the same discount he gives me, which is competitive with most of the Internet dealers who aren't nuts.

I hope this helps.
