    @hd-bagger: that BM reminds me of one of my very first knives -- a Smith & Wesson 2000 LE; also uses polymer scale inserts. Although the steel is not in the same league as the BM; nor is the lock or the workmanship! LOL

    L'chaim!

    That's very cool.

    Looks like it was a very well done job too, especially without having damaged the handle inlays.

    They must have removed them, and then reapplied after the coating was completed - yes?

    No sir! I thought so too but there’s no way to remove the g10 from the scales. There is no raised edge around any of it either. It looks like Benchmade sold it this way. The glock doesn’t have a flaw either. He’s a local guy here in MS and obviously does a fantastic job! Turn around time was only 5 days for knife and gun.

    Received a mini barrage yesterday. That is a nice little knife. Good ergos and the blade is a good cutter.

    So like many newbies to the “good” knife world, I started with a mini grip. I later made my way through many of the “hard use” and tactical knives, eventually “graduating” to your Sebenzas, SNGs and XM-18s. Later I finally picked up a tan scaled Emerson mini-CQC-7, which is the first knife to truly catch my attention many years ago.

    Recently, I picked up a like new mini-barrage off of the bay and have rekindled my interest in benchmade minis. It’s funny how our tastes come full circle after a while.

    Quick question for you BM folks that have the 275/2750 - is it too big for an EDC knife? Its calling my name again...

    I've carried a Vicar off and on for several months. It's a bit large and heavy, but not so much that won't carry it. The Vicar maybe a little thicker than the Adamas though too. Really I use it if I'm doing a one knife day. Something that's able to open a package and be a defensive tool if I'm down to that.

    The Vicar looks nice, I'm just not a thumb stud/spydiehole kinda guy. Briefly experimented with a PM2 long enough to realize that I'm either a flipper or an auto kinda guy.

    I'm mainly looking at the 2750 as an all-purpose knife - EDC, packages, hunting/fishing, camping, light yardwork, defensive if it really hits the fan.

    I rotate through all my knives, including both an auto and a manual Adamas. Personally I don't find the weight or size of it to be any issue at all. No one can really answer your question though, you have to try for yourself. Either way, I know you will like it if you buy it.

    I was just using it as a size reference.

    Find myself rotating between these three BMs over any of my spydercos, kershaws, etc. Really like BM quality.
