anyone who has ever spent more than $400 on a pocket knife.......this is your fault! if it wasn't for people spending entire paychecks on glorified letter openers, no one would think to charge this much money for a couple ounces of metal. its not just benchmade, in fact, its not benchmade at all, they're just gettin their slice. its all these custom nut jobs that are so full of themselves they bang on a piece of metal for a while untill it looks somewhat like a knife and then sell it for hundreds or thousands of dollars. and then you all just gobble it up. ' oh well this fancy fella made a custom box cutter!! you know, for cutting cardboard!!!! ahhhhhh! take all my money!!!!!'. jesus. most people justify their purchases by regurgitating the consumers motto: 'its my money, i'll buy what makes me happy!' ok, well why rip on benchmade for giving people that opportunity??
