Let me be the first to start a thread on Benchmade. My only Benchmade so far. A Nim Cub II.
Excellent craftsmanship on that knife!My favorite everyday knives are Case with the yellow derlin handle. I think from my younger days when my mom worked at Belks department store. They had a large display of Case knives they sold I would always look at when I went to her work.
I have an employee who makes knives. He questioned me on what I liked in a knife and a month or so later he presented me with one that was exactly what I liked. Don't know what it's worth, but it's priceless to me.
