    BM 940-1... I snagged a good deal and it's even coming with a deep carry clip, so less work on my end. This will be my first Benchmade so I hope it's not disappointing!

    OK, I'm not too good at this, but I promised earlier to supply feedback and a picture or two of the Kershaw Nura 3.5 when I got it. Here goes. I started by being disappointed that the knife came to me from Knife Center in a clam shell package instead of a box. Not sure why I expected a box, but I did:

    The knife was centered well and the obligatory paper test showed that the factory edge was nicely sharp "out of the box". Although it has SS scales and the knife is good size it did not feel heavy - my scale says it weighs 3.8 oz. The scales are rounded and the feel in the hand is better than I expected when I first looked at it. The lock up was over 50% - I'd say more like 75% (too high for a new knife IMO). The lock bar is very near the opposite scale and a bear to move, especially if your thumb isn't as close to the pivot as you can get. The centering is good, but I've read they tend to drift, but only time will tell. As I've also read before, the detent is weak which makes flipping it "light switch" style a 50 - 50 proposition. It seems to deploy ok with the "push button" technique. The jimping on the blade and spine is pretty good. I thought I'd include a comparison picture of another $30 - $35 knife, that I think is better:

    Mail call from K'roo Knives in South Africa!! This was well worth the wait. It's a real beast, super chunky. Beautiful, thick brass liners. I will try to take some more pictures in the morning that actually do it justice!

    DPX H.E.S.T. 3.0 customized somewhat.

    I have been looking for a decent user of this for a while and when I found this one Local from another Forum member here it was too much to resist!
    Beast of a knife and this one is unique ad I will not be afraid to use it hard either,not that I am anyway if I decide to EDC one.

    Despite the fact that I just bought a 0566 and had just gotten done telling myself that I didn't need a 0561 once I realized it was discontinued I jumped on it. Talk about motivation. I have wanted that knife for so long so I guess I just needed a little push. I'll prob EDC the 0566 more cause of it's slimmer figure but I have always wanted a 0561.

    I jumped on a 561 last year when I found one for what seemed a great price to me and I promise you will not be let down by yours!
    I have several ZT now having started with the 566 when it first came out and so far the 566 is my least favorite easily!
    I love it but......
