BENCHMADE aids police in destroying firearms

Anybody else see this? Oregon police department praises Benchmade Knife Co. for their cooperation in destroying a number of guns at their facility. Benchmade basically says it was their civic duty ???? Left my Benchmade in the drawer today carried a Gerber instead.

Comments? anyone?

RIP is correct. I will never buy a knife from then again. They will be given away.

My comment? Yawn...

Here's a bit more information about the issue and about Benchmade, including an interview with one of Benchmade's directors.

I did go here and read all of the interview. What I took from it sounded kinda like ."Really sorry we got caught doing this and that the video and pictures got out but we're really good people and we promise not to do it again"


I guess it's all OK then but I don't think I'll be running down to DICK'S to buy a new Benchmade . but that's just me.

I like the one I have and I carry it most days. It's not one of their high dollar models by any means. But I have a large knife collection so I have lots of options. I had been looking at an upgrade for my EDC but I would find it hard not to look at something else at this point. Blade Headquarters has so much stuff to choose from I'm sure I can find a better way to spend my money.

I won't be throwing away my BM but I'll probably just put it in my display cabinet and pull out a Gerber, SOG or Mantis for now. I might just go back to my Bear&Sons auto.

I guess their police department can only afford millions in riot gear but can't afford a 100 dollar chop saw...

... Hey, I'll pay for shipping and take what ever you don't want :-)

...Just kidding, seriously, unless it really bothers you having those blades under your roof. They are fairly high quality, you paid a premium price, f%ck that, why not keep um. For new stuff look elsewhere, they're overpriced in my opinion anyways. If what ever they're doing bothers you to that degree Ebay those babies and donate the proceeds to the NRA :-)

...or again, just PM me and we'll get them out of your home :-)

Benchmade motto: "We're sorry. We're even more sorry than last time."
