My "new" Benchmade

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.

My "new" Benchmade

Post by Byrd » Mon Jun 17, 2019 7:52 pm

Well not really new. I bought this Wee Hawk 25-30 years ago and just got it back from Benchmade. Cleaned and sharpened. Good as new and free of charge. They had it about 3 weeks. Great customer service!

Free of charge? Can't beat that. Nice to know that customer service is alive and well. Thanks for sharing. Nice knife by the way. ::nod::

Great customer service! I hadn't carried this knife for years because I couldn't get it sharp. These are made of hard steel! I checked their site and they recommend sending it to them for sharpening and the rest is history. It's like new and shaving sharp. I'd used Bucks spa treatment in the past and was happy that Benchmade offered the same service.

No, I wish I did. I carried it for years and it was pretty rough.

No, I don't know what steel Benchmade was using back then.
