    Turned the big 3 0 yesterday. Never been big on birthdays but my wife insists on making everything extra special, especially milestone birthdays. She had caught me looking at knives a few months ago but I was just window shopping and had no intention of spending the money on a $150+ knife. Well long story short, I woke up to this guy yesterday morning. I've never owned a Benchmade but always wanted one. I fell in love with this knife but never thought I'd get it. Hard to justify when my Mora does most everything I need it to do. I'm beyond excited and got to play with it for a few minutes tonight in the dark lol. Few seconds making shavings with the spine and I had a fatwood fire with ease. Only got one good picture, but I'll be posting many more of my new baby. I'm a very fortunate man : )

    You will like that knife. It shows you how S30V steel gets and holds a fantastic edge. Your wife should be rewarded for such a nice gift!
