    Or even simpler, OP can sell the coupon for $$ if it is transferable. OP - would you like to entertain this idea?

    I thought about that too but it's a bit more random. Since it's worth more to somebody wanting an Anthem than somebody who just wants a Bugout. At least that's what the math in my head say (~220$ off vs ~60$ off)

    Benchmade 390BK SOCP Folding Knife 4.47" D2 Black Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles ($179 at Knife Center)

    Get the Anthem for $200, sell it for $375 here and then buy a 940-2. Then you've gotten one of the best knives on the market for free.

    The coupon isn't transferable. Plus it needs to be shipped to where I work, anywhere else and it will raise some red flags to the higher ups.

    Its more like a recoil spring in a pistol. Instead of being omega shaped and fitting into the scale or liner it's a coil spring over a guide rod that pushes the lock bar up from the rear. Thats whay the screw on the back of the handle are for. They anchor the lock spring assembly.

    Explain to me how 60% off MSRP isn’t a good deal? You do understand MAP is 15% off MSRP, so he’s getting an additional 45% off MAP.

    Benchmade is a company I wish I liked more. I have a 710 and that'll probably be the only one, even their more expensive designs just dont look right.

    Except Benchmade uses MAAP which sets a bottom line. Dealers don’t get to deduct 50% off of MSRP when it comes to Benchmade products. This has been the case for some time now.

    Get the Anthem.
    It is the best axis lock knife available today, period.
    Yes, I have owned and handled (& re-handled) the majority of benchmades models..........& I’m telling you the Anthem is monumental.
    Get it while you can, especially at your discounted price.
    That is an awesome deal!

    Yes they can, as long as they don’t publicly advertise Benchmade products they can set a sticker price of whatever they want. Got a local store that sets an avg sticker price of 20% off, and another one in my wife’s hometown does 30% off on avg. Neither advertise publicly.

    Some local dealers may do this and get away with it (I have one as well) but online dealers will not lower their price. They will tell you that it goes against the contract Benchmade makes them sign. After the Crooked River went up in price I found an online dealer that had one old stock with the original price. I contacted the dealer I normally buy from with the link and was told they could not match the price as it was against their contract with Benchmade. By the time I got the email telling me no the other site raised their price.
