Made me a Benchmade Fanboy
Just got my 550-1 today, and I'm in love. Was a little scared at 1st hearing about BM's QC issues but my knife is perfect- centering, grind, sharpness, the works. This is my 1st Benchmade but definitely not my last. If you're like I was, wondering if almost $200 for a knife was worth it. With Benchmade it is, I'm in construction so I'm gonna but this beauty through the paces, then send it back to benchmade for a sharpening, and tune up. Then I'll be back to update.
