Arrived home from work today and had a small package waiting on me in the mail. Opened it up and it was a new Benchmade Mini-Ambush folder. I was addressed to me, but I didn't order it, and my wife says she didn't either. Don't know where it came from. The plain white padded envelope was post marked out of Cincinnati, but there was no return address on it. I don't know anyone in Cincinnati. I think my wife is involved, but she says she has no idea. I'm sure I've made comments that I would like a new knife, and that I would like a Benchmade, but not recently, and I've never made a big deal about it.
Oh well, I'm happy even if I never find out where it came from. I still think it's my wife, she did something similar when she got me my surefire light. Only with the light I came home to find it on my chair not in the mail.

Awesome knife! Plus the Axis lock - correct? How many teeth you lose for that cutie?
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
cool, sounds like she's a keeper (the knife too)

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.
Boy that knife must be hard to carry......look how big it is compared to that Glock!!!!!

Nice knife, a Benchmade is definitely on my list of ones too buy. Soo many knife choices, so few MOLLE attachments open and such small gov't paychecks.

Does your wife offer training courses for other women???
Nice Benchmade! Even nicer it was a surprise gift...congrats:)
If you own a handgun and your state law allows it, please carry.
Congrats on the new knife. I'm a long time Benchmade addict myself, they get expensive quickly once you start collecting them!
That stupid Benchmade fairy took my knife to the wrong house!!!!

I've owned about 6 Benchmade knives and have loved each one of them.
I've also lost 4 of them while at work! OUCH! I hate losing $80 - $100 knives! (I now carry my work Benchmade in a nylon sheath instead of relying on the pocket clip)

Nice blade. I have 2 Benchmades...an AFO automatic folder and a fixed blade Nimravus. I love them both.
Where did you get that glock keychain, and do they make Sigs? I must have one!
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Good looking knife, I hope to get one someday.
