    Looking it it now. Definitely don't need it, but it looks pretty slick. I already have a Spyderco Manix 2.

    For those of you with the Benchmade 755 MPR? How do you like it?

    Picked one up in trade. Very solid knife, a little thick and heavy for a true EDC. The blade also seemed too thick for true EDC, but it was a robust little knife. The Pocket clip could use some work, and it was only tip down carry. Otherwise a solid knife that opened amazingly fast.

    Tip-down carry and the thumbstud ended up being the deal breaker for me. But it gets great reviews in other places... for the price though, I would probably buy a Spyderco Military.

    I prefer thumbholes to thumbstuds.

    Funny, because I was on the search for one but landed a Manix 2 so I kind of put off the search for now. Still would like to check one out, but I love the Manix 2.

    It may live up to its name of Mini Pocket Rocket by its bulk. I've been eyeing it for sometimes but I think I'll pass even though I like it
