    You can believe that you would’ve not got that service from a cheap made knife company.

    That’s what they do.

    Good company.

    I was having my doubts the last couple of blades had been very disappointing someone here said to call customer service. I wrote them an email and they took care of it right away and sent me a free knife of my choice. I absolutely love the Mel Pardue line of autos even more than the infidels so I got another one.

    I've been buying only Benchmade for over 15 years now, and the only thing I don't like about them is when I lose one. Their worth every penny spent.

    I have two Benchmades and couldn't be happier, a Resistor and an Auto Stryker I JUST got back from the Life Sharp service, very nice.
    That looks like a very practical knife, sir, very nice indeed!

    Benchmade won't ship autos to individuals, and if an individual ships to them, they won't return the knife. Exceptions are law enforcement and Benchmade dealers.

    Mine went through the local authorized dealer to Benchmade - we aren't considered LE in some regards, that being one of them. No worries, I didn't break any laws and I didn't make it up - wanna see a pic tomorrow when I can drag it out? It opens faster and the edge is sweet. I wish they could have replaced the blade, which came to me nicked in the serrated edge, but hey, for a free service one cannot complain, AND they knew up front that I was not the original purchaser.
