    I`ve had a somewhat unusual relationship with Benchmade knives over the years. My first one was a Balisong, early `90s, before there even was a company called "Benchmade". They were marketed under the name "Bali-Song", with the butterfly logo. A few years later, (like a knucklehead) I sold that knife to a guy I worked with.
    Eventually the company name became Benchmade, but for whatever reason, I ignored the entire line for a long time. Until I finally bought another one, that is, and saw what I`d been missing. I currently have maybe 8 or 9 BMs, love `em all....

    A pity, that would have been a Pacific Cutlery Balisong. I've found a couple over the years, really beautiful knives.

    1525619312747259487736.jpg Hey
    I just picked up a new Benchmade Fact 417bk.
    The clip/grip is a little tight but other than that I'm pretty tickled with it.

    I have these two Benchmades in my pockets right now....for some reason, they just seem to fit well together, like peanut butter and jelly.... :)

    I bought a Benchmade Custom Mini Griptilian. S30V steel satin blade. Black nylon scales and all black hardware.

    Today`s Sharp & Pointy ridealong is the Kershaw 1850, the all-Ti version of the Tyrade (a Ken Onion design). This knife came out about a year before Onion joined up with Strider, and the Zero Tolerance line was released. Familial DNA between the lines is pretty evident. Best ergonomics I`ve ever felt in a folder....

    The Benchmade Contego definitely punches above it`s weight class....while being in the "Large and In Charge" category, size wise, the reasonably light weight and slim profile make it easy to carry. That FFG M4 tool-steel blade takes & holds a fine edge, too.
