Hey guys Im lucky enough to live just across the river from both Benchmade and Kershaw and I was wondering if BM has an annual "blem" sale similar to Kershaw. I went to Kershaws sale this weekend and spent a mess of money on some amazing ZTs and Kershaws and would love to do the same with BMs. Anyone know why I never seem to hear of blemished BMs on the market?

That's what I also told also better to scarp it and recycle the components than spoil their reputation, also they do their very best with quality control.. Big Grin

But they are human and a mistake could always make it through every now and again..Wink

Everything I've ever heard is consistent with the policy that "it's either perfect, or it doesn't leave the factory."

I've heard about various sales over the years -- Christmas or whatever -- but I've never seen anything specific. I live in Oregon, close enough that I'd visit for a good deal, but I don't know where they announce it. Maybe they don't announce it to the public? Anyone have info?

What Christmas sale? Is it a direct 'go to' the factory deal or will it be on-line?

I know there are many who avoid Facebook, myself included, that would sure like BKC to make similar announcements right here.

What's up with that Benchmade? Roll Eyes


Too many Benchmades to mention.
