I like it. It is gorgeous in the comp finish. Huge slab of SR-101... I thought the old .27 Mountainmandu was thick... this is .35 and Totally different than the normal Ratweilers, especially the thin cut - mostly because it weighs as much as a boat anchor. I hope the hollow grind means it will still go through anything (supposedly it is Flat, Hollow, & Convex). I guess I will try to modify a SPEC-OPS sheath insert to get this thing covered.

It was so close in dimension, beside the thickness to my Urgent Fury that I passed on it but I sure do like it. And you got yours exactly how I would have.

Caught the knife bug last week after I lost my full size Griptillian. Ended up getting a replacement (have been EDC'ing them for almost 10 years now) and trying out Esee fixed blades as well. Starting to enjoy the Esee's over my Benchmades...







Currently looking into a Chris Reeve Sebenza 31 or a used plain 21. Hard to pull the trigger on something that I will definitely use and beat up on when I already do the same with others that are a third of the cost (and I'm currently happy with).

Oh yeah, that's a nice blade. The Green and black G10 looks great.

They have the Wardens out right now. That's an interesting little knife with the same thickness.

I think I have a problem. Fourth knife purchased in 2 weeks!


Might be an obvious answer but whatís the purpose of the little piece of parachord on the end of the sheath? To lash it onto something? Doesnít seem too sturdy if so...? Thanks!

Last night I bought a NIB Benchmade 495 Vector off ebay. Guaranteed delivery by 3/30. I'm looking for another similar model that is flip assisted and can be opened easily with one hand.

I have way too many knives. I purchased them and then leave them in their original boxes and never use them. Then I buy more.

Nice one. Carbon or stainless? I have the 15 cm / 5.9" in carbon and the 20.5 cm / 8" in stainless... the carbon started to patina immediately.

A few minutes ago I ordered another Benchmade 495 Vector. I've owned one for a few months and the three I've recently purchased are going to my two sons and my daughter.

Sometimes I take them out and look at them. Sometimes I want to use them. Then I always wind up using the cheap Kershaws I get a big five because I'm afraid to damaging the good ones. Some of which I've had for 30 years

Sounds like a nice collection. Yep, I bet they all cut... definitely a difference between cheap and quality, but you can get inexpensive knives that are decent.

I've been a Kabar fan for quite a while, but not really owned any except Becker's till recently. I used them (Kabar) when I was a kid. The bowie I bought recently went right back after I handled it... cheapo fit and finish that felt fragile. Good stuff will spoil you, but it doesn't have to be expensive good stuff. Those SYKCO's are bomb proof.

You only live once. Use your expensive knives they are so much nicer to use. They sharpen too if youre worried about ruining them.

Mine is carbon steel and, like yours, is just under six inches. I do like the stainless though. I chose to go cheap, which is fine for my purpose. It has a decent edge. I want to square off the spine.

Tempted to try out a police 4. But from what I can read up on it. It is longer than a pm2?

A PM2 is the upper limit in regards to length I would want to pocket carry. Unless I’m working in the yard I just use my Manix 2

Yeah, both blade and handle on Police 2 are significantly longer than PM2.
Was thinking similar as far as the longer blades, but tried it a couple days and the Police carries really nice, I love them all LOL. As far as sizing, surprised at how much I like the little Dragonfly, really neat knife.

picked up another Blackjack model 3 a few weeks ago. These knives are very impressive for the price.



I might have to fire up the PC to post a pic. I'm not having any luck with my tablet

Oh man don’ t get me started on the dragonfly. I just got a few delica’s and now am eyeing a dragonfly. I never thought I would like a delica or a dragonfly.

I need to stop looking at knives lol it’s becoming worse than guns.

I have some knives that I paid $125 for in the late 1980s. Now I look on some of the knife sites and they're worth over four to five hundred dollars. The feel of them in my hand and the mechanical perfection opening and closing them is amazing. I must say though for a cheap knife, the Kershaw Leek And the Ontario Rat are pretty impressive.

I see it as I"ve saved a ton of money vs guns, and because of the much lower prices, wifey gets off my back re purchases too.
