    Default Thoughts on Benchmade's major mistake last week?

    Last week Benchmade was thanked by local PD for cutting up confiscated guns. Raised quite a stir among gun and knife owners.
    Rather than rehash, listen to Tom Gresham, an ardent supporter of knife rights and a great producer of weekly podcasts, interview the director of marketing from Benchmade. I found this very disturbing and illustrates how out of touch a company can become once they have achieved some degree of success. The Benchmade segment starts at 5:43 and only runs a few minutes. Just enough time for them to completely bury themselves.

    BTW, any of you west coast members better listen to the entire podcast as ugly new proposals are on your doorstep.

    Benchmade chose greed and alienated many customers.

    Management stupidity!

    Knda harsh. Politics aside, Benchmade produces excellent knives, fairly priced.

    Is this one of their better deals you are talking about?
    We have a vast separation in our definition of fairly priced.

    Every manufacturer has stuff that is overpriced. They also sell fairly priced well made knives.

    On Tuesday I bought one of these to replace my $200 943 Osborne that will be returned to Benchmade on Tues next week. I could not find one negative review on this knife and I am looking forward to its arrival as a replacement for the Benchmade product.

    I've seen and handled some WE Knife Co. products and they do seem very well made.

    I can't afford knives like that, or coolers like Yetis.
