    It's a new knife from Benchmade this year...a big up grade from the original
    Big upgrade for sure, total redesign!

    Knives are like wristwatches, there is always another one that is a "must have." Seems the more expensive the folder, the quicker it wears a hole in my pants from carrying it.
    I've gone back to a light Spyderco on my body, and a Mora in my Maxpedition "camera bag."

    I have a similar Mora. Mine is carbon steel with a mustard patina and 20 second mill file killing on the back spine.
