    I'm not a connoisseur, but have added knives from several manufacturers to the "knife drawer" (which rivals the "holster box") in search of the Goldilocks blade over the years. I've got a few from Benchmade, including this Mini Grip from Benchmade's custom shop, with S30V blade, G10 grips, and mini deep carry clip.

    The custom shop ( https://www.benchmade.com/custom-knife-builder ) isn't cheap, but they've added a lot of options, including the Bugout, which I've been eyeing for no good reason.

    A couple other Benchmades on hand: Azeria (in house version of what they used to produce as the HK Plan D), Rescue hook, and older full size Griptillian.

    No need, friend. The two M2 versions are more than enough for me. I like D2 as well, but I'm not a fan of the partially serrated blades as a rule.
    Appreciate it though.

    I guess I have been a fan of Benchmade since some time in the 80s when my dad bought a Bali-song. Someone told him it was illegal to own so it disappeared.

    In 1999 I bought a Stryker and then a Griptilian when they came out. I've had several of them since including this one that my son bought me for my birthday a few years ago

    I think this full size Barrage might be my favorite folder of all time.

    Away, away, away, down.......
    A mini Stryker was the first high quality folder I bought for myself in the late 90ís with $60 worth of birthday money.
    The ats34 steel was pretty fancy for that time and I used the hell out of that knife for a decade before I put it into retirement. I later boucght and subsequently lost a full sized Stryker when the pocket clip snagged on something at work. That was the same fate of a iirc a model 710 with the axis lock. I stopped carrying clipped on folders after that and went to small fixed blades iwb.
