First new knife in over 2 years** /???

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.

Relax Monkey Man. Luxuriate in the ownership of that new Barrage. It's a fine knife to soften the landing of the fall from grace. :mrgreen:

A Barrage 581, Benchmade offered mix and match scales and blade steel for awhile. Sucked me right in, they did.
Same knife, different looks.

At least for me, that's "brief periods of remission". ::dang::

Monk, I am not a doctor, but I am pretty sure that going two years without a new knife is dangerous to a man's well being. I sure do not plan to try it, anyway!

That Barrage certainly is a beauty.
