I have a friend who has become one of those guys I'd take a bullet for. Like, if he called me and said, "bring a shovel and don't ask questions" that's what I would do. He's just a dear friend and I count him among the very best people I know and someday I hope to be as good of a guy as he is.
He is not into knives, but he knows I am. He wanted to do something nice for my birthday and he got this for me. I was stunned. Literally slack jawed. He is very quiet and reserved and when he gave this to me he would have died of embarrassment if I had made a big deal about it in front of everyone else.
This is a Benchmade Tengu flipper. It's the gold class, which is very nice, but silly extravagant. "No comment" if you were to ask me if it's worth the premium. But I was at a loss for words when he gave this to me.
It's a really nice little knife. I like it very much. I had actually been looking at this in the regular 'ol blue class version.
I have a number of knives far better than I deserve. Joe is a friend in that same "better than I deserve", gold class, for sure.
