    anyone have experience with the long bladed benchmade folders?

    I'm talking about the benchmade folders with blades longer than the handles. like the 10100 and folding fillet knives.

    I ordered the 10100SBK (partially serrated with black blade) today after waiting too long for my store to become a dealer, i just gave up and ordered it online. I've had other red-series benchmades and we sell a couple of the blue series ones so I know they will be fine, but I've never seen the mechanism in action.

    For those of you who don't know, a section of the handle slides or swings out automatically as the blade is folded in, allowing it to catch the sharp edge and tip of the blade and lock onto it for inside your pocket, then when you open the knife that section folds or slides into the channel the blade was just in making the handle only about 1/3 of the length of the opened knife.

    I like bigger folders, I have a 4"+ blade folder right now and I don't see why not, if I have a glock in my pants its not like a knife is going to really limit me no matter how big it is.

    So has anyone actually used one of these? Did I make a[nother] good decision?

    well no one knows about them i guess, so here's a video of the knife that came. first thing you notice is how hugemongous it is. It is good quality with no play in the mechanism. In the video for size reference there is a regular climbing beaner, and a regular bigger size gerber folder (not the little one).

    Hugemongous, eh? But is it "ginormous"?

    Actually, these are new to me, never seen 'em before. Not my style, but still very interesting. They've addressed the idea of a normal size handle with a larger-than-folder blade! That's sure to win a knife guild award somewhere.
