SHARE YOUR BENCHMADES

The Benchmade Knife Company, Inc. is a relatively new organization. It was founded in 1988 in California as a manufacturer of Bali-Song (butterfly knives). The business was moved to Oregon in 1990 where the company’s dedication to quality and customer service enabled it to grow rapidly and expand its product line. In the early 1990’s the Designer series was introduced, which laid the groundwork for what Benchmade has become today.

Does anyone happen to have one of these 535-1901s? I just found one, it hasn't been delivered yet. Thanks for your thoughts! ::handshake::

Had to do a day trip to Cumberland on Saturday and decided to carry this knife. I'll tell you this is the sharpest factory edge I have in my collection. This knife would slice unpeeled mandarins paper thin.

I assume this is crucible steel and it is amazing. The weight of this knife makes one forget he/she's carrying a knife. I'm sure the standard versions are the same except in looks. The Jade G10 scales have gotten a grip on me, seeking out other knives with them. ::nod::

Looks like a nice carry! I'd have to agree that, on average, my BM knives have come with the best edges! ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

This arrived today. Only my second BENCHMADE. It's in EXCELLENT condition.
It will join my EDC rotation. The last two pictures show it paired up with my
first BENCHMADE, which has been an EDC since the early 1990's (and looks it).
