    I've been working with an older gentleman. Well, not old, but older than me. Which these days, even in my mid 40's, is getting rare. Lol.

    A couple weeks ago he got a load of my custom Benchmade day carry knife, which was a birthday gift from my little brother a couple years ago.

    Tonite he gifted me a very old and well worn Benchmade auto. Spring is killer, wicked clean and fast, and its sharp enough to shave with. Came out of nowhere. I never saw it coming. But what a sweet blade!

    Here are my Benchmade blades, together.

    That's a great gift!

    Since you are a into knives, not sure if you've seen these before, but sorry to fuel some KAS, hehe.

    Watch a CNC make boutique knives! And the other is a channel of top end knife reviews, this particular video is of an EDC pocket spinner for something different but you can skim through his knife videos, there are some unique ones. Before you wonder what these all go for these knives (and amazingly the tops!) tend to be like buying brand new MIM, MIA, or even those fancy new upper end Gibson LPs. There is also the same constant debate about CNC vs Hand-made...

    Very nice. I had the liner lock version of that one back in the day.

    A friend who was a cop in Indianapolis carried that one as his EDC.

    I had a friend who collected Benchmade knives. He had spinabifida and didn't really go anywhere unless I took him. His prized possessions were his knife collection and his adult air rifles. Air rifles are expensive (one of his was $3000 and two year waiting list)...but I was blown away by how much money was involved in his collection of about 12 or 15 Benchmade knives.

    Very nice gift, JD! Those things are heirloom stuff!

    PSA, unless they follow through and change the law in Louisiana, these "automatic" knives are not entirely legal in Louisiana.

    Not a bad idea to research this if you're visiting. Hopefully we can get this fixed; the Bill is pending right now I think. May change very soon.

    I have a couple spring assisted Kershaw Knives and was wondering if they were legal everywhere. They can be opened pretty fast. One of them is the Rainbow type which I bought because it is pretty and basically for show. I have more Case Knives than should be allowed.

    My daily carry for the last 7 years has been a Kershaw Leek. Great knife. Like the low profile in my pocket and sharp point for delicate work. Also impressed with how strong said point is!

    I carried a Byrd (cheap spyderco) for quite a while. I generally forget more often than not.

    My wife helped me get the knife of my teenage years, a sog tomcat for my birthday one year.

    I got a couple custom knives made by a local guy, traded him a gun for them. I will take a picture when I get home, they are sweet.

    Have you ever been to blade show in Atlanta? It's pretty awesome.

    That top one, all black? I have that exact same knife in a switchblade. A friend who was a cop got it for me as a gift.

    Benchmade are very high quality knives. Good score for you!

    Here's the handmade blades, the maker is Carl Rechsteiner. My wife's is the fancy one, mine was made from melted ball bearings.

    I picked mine because it just looked like something Jack the Ripper probably would have liked.

    I had a girlfriend who once told me she always wanted a switch blade knife. I found her one. I think she was trembling a bit when she took it out of the box. I showed her how to unlock it and how to open it safely. Then I let her pop it open. I think she was actually relieved that instead of a blade, it had a comb.

    Foat Wuth, Texas grandson would probably appreciate that a lot.....Me? my everyday carry is (please don't laugh) is a thirty-year-old Swiss Army Tinker.....I like it because it's got a sharp blade, flat-head, Phillips, awl, can opener, and a smaller blade. Big plus....toothpick and tweezers. Important thing is....Real Men carry knives!

    I love old knives, vintage, and some current.

    Those "bench" made knives look like plastic made not on a bench? Just too modern I guess.

    Maybe I just like 'old timers" etc.
