    Benchmade fairy visited yesterday

    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?

    cool, sounds like she's a keeper (the knife too)

    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.

    She's tried to teach my best friends wife, but either she is a bad trainer, or his wife is just too dumb to learn. I'll go with the later. I can say that because she is an ex-gf of mine.

    I tried to warn him, but he wouldn't listen.....LOL

    Congrats on the new knife. I'm a long time Benchmade addict myself, they get expensive quickly once you start collecting them!

    Great knife!

    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!
