Just got a BM 630 Skirmish
Well, I found it at my local gunshow, being sold by a knife dealer. He was selling alot of benchmades, as well as someother brands, so hopefully everything was the real deal.
Have to say though, after playing around and handling it, I was sold. I love just about everything about it, but I really like how it feels when your holding it. To me its like a bowie knife that can fold up into your pocket. I was looking to get one since summer though, so it wasnt an on the spot buy.
No pics yet though, technically my father bought it (he came down to go shooting with me), and he's going to give it to me for Christmas when I come back up. Its the black model, with the slight OD green handle.
A few questions though...
Can a gunshow sharpener (they use a wheel) sharpen it for me, or am I going to have do it by hand (I'm really terrible at sharpening, and starting on the 630 wouldnt be a joy for me).
Should I have been worried he was selling it for 190? I saw no flaws or defects, in the blade, edge or functionality. It opened smooth, locked hard with no blade play and closed just as smooth. Did I just find a pretty good deal?
And lastly, If I were to put a little 1/4th of an inch edge on the backside (it comes to a spear point) to make the point a little more sharp, would it still be legal? I'm pretty sure Texas law allows up to an inch of second edge, but I just want to check with some other Texans.
Cant wait for Christmas now! :danceban:
