As I live very near the Benchmade HQ I have had them sharpen my knives and replace screws, and do tune ups. They are good folk, care about their products - I know blah blah blah - another person that is hinting at going up in price.
What draws you do this particular knife? Blade style, the type of steel, price, Cold Steel name? I am sure it will cut anything you want it to. You certainly don't need to justify your reasons - just curious.
*San Mai would be a good name for a dog... An akita maybe?
Ok what draws me to it is the perfect look and style in the 50$ range. I want a Tanto knife to carry that has a satin finish and a 3 1/2 to 4" blade. If you guys can help me pick my next one I will gladly move away from CS... Please help me lol
