I sent benchmade an email about my clip on my emissary 470 getting caught on my jacket and becoming loose before all this antigun bullshit and still haven’t heard back from them. They say they will replace them for free. Nothing. I bought a titanium one off amazon and I’m done with them.
First "real" knife I bought years ago was a Recon 1. What a beast of a knife. I let a friend sharpen it on his fancy knife sharpener because the edge finally went bye-bye after so many years, and it was nice to cut stuff w/ it again. It's a well-built knife. I still buy other knives, but I'll definitely always look at a Cold Steel first
FYI that is the one made in Taiwan. I am not a knife guy really either but the US made ones were (are?) made from better steel. I have no experience with this one so not knocking it and at this price I might have to pick one up and compare the two.
