Lucky! I found out these knives were discontinued—Benchmade no longer makes them, after a 1st production run in 2018. I was thinking 🤔 💭 thinking—they’re not cheap—so I said, heck with it! Christmas present for ME! And BladeHQ sold out! It was already in my cart! Long story short—they were on sale/discontinued price over at BHQ, so about ten bucks cheaper—but you can’t find one ANYwhere that costs less than here! They’re minimum over $200 on eBay now.
I got a first production run! Yep, #400/1200 made.
I couldn’t be happier with the knife. That’s before I even get to how awesome it is, big, thick piece of S30V steel
