    I love the spring-assist opening on the Barrages, but it does make them more difficult to close single-handed. Anyone else notice this or figure out a better way to close it?

    Also, I ordinarily would not have bought a Tanto blade knife, but I received a Mini Griptilian so equipped as a Christmas gift. Who can enlighten me on the advantages/uses for this type of blade?

    I have 7 Benchmade knives, if you include the "HK" knives. 4 of them are Griptilians (including the Doug Ritter), a full size Barrage, an HK Nitrous and HK Tumult.

    If you're addicted to Benchmade, then whatever you do, do NOT buy any Spyderco's. I currently have 4 Spyderco's, and getting ready to buy my 5th. Tenacious, Manix 2, Endura Wave and Paramilitary 2. Going to be buying a Persian.

    It strengthens the point of the blade for stabbing.

    Benchmades are great and I love mine but I also agree with the comment about not trying Spyderco if you already have an addiction problem with Benchmade. I've been having an itching to pick up another knife but I need funds. A fixed blade Esee has been in my thoughts right along with a Spyderco Manix. I do want to pick up some more Benchmades though but everything comes in due-time. In the line of Benchmades, I'm wanting to try out another Griptilian (Sand color, black Tanto blade) and an Onslaught. These should fit in and be right at home with the Griptilian & Triage I already have. ;-)

    Know what you mean about the Esee knives. Just picked up a -3 Mil and a Candiru. I'm now thinking Izulu II to round out that trifecta. They are awesome knives, feel perfectly balanced in the hand.

    I have owned several BM knives and really like them. Currently I only have one BM which my wife gave me. It's the 860. Big knife. Solid feel.

    I love knives too, and am a big fan of Benchmade. And it's a big ouch when you loose two $100+ knives and have to replace them because they were a couple of your favorites. My EDC at work is the Benchmade 915 Triage and my EDC off duty is the Benchmade Rift & SOG Slim Jim XL. I also throw in the ESEE Izula II quite a bit as an EDC.

    My most recent purchase is a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 in Digi Camo and Black DLC blade. It should be here tomorrow. I was supposed to be here today, but it got misrouted.

    I carried a Benchmade folder ( still liner-locks at the time ) on an overseas security gig many years ago but forget the model/name. Lost the damn thing.

    Almost had an Adamas walk home with me after a recent gun show. Love the style but wanted something just a bit smaller. Dude was going to sell it for $150 cash, major temptation.

    Been carrying a Griptillian for a few months now. Best folder I've ever used.
