My latest Benchmade, a Proper sheepfoot. I bought it at the factory store in Oregon City the Saturday before Christmas. My wife handed me her card and said, "Go get your Christmas present."
I have an AWESOME wife!!
The factory store is quite a place. It suprised me that most of the people shopping in the factory store were much younger than the crowd at the average knife show. I would estimate that half the customers in their 30s or younger. Benchmade seems to have captured the imagination of the younger folks! I think that is a good thing!
