Who did your auto mod on this knife? They don't come from the factory like that....do they? I'm a boker dealer and they told me directly from the warranty department that they do not ship them with any auto or assisted opens. Not calling you a liar, I have seen these before, just curious so I can direct my customers should they ask. Thanks

The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

I would refer you and your superiors(?) to the international Navigation Rules ----- the over-ruling rule is that you should break the rule in a situation that it is necessary to avoid a collision. [in your case - to possibly save a life; much as is the reasoning in the navigation rules].

In the vein of just sharing my thoughts I got my first auto from my son-in-law as a birthday present about 12 years ago. It was a large Benchmade and I stuck it in my pocket and used it as my EDC knife - I am a farmer. For the last 12 years I have literally abused that knife. As a farmer I have used it for a variety of dirty, grimy, tough tasks on the farm.
The knife (though it now looks like heck) has never missed a beat. Based on this sample of one I sure can recommend my Benchmade auto as a great performer.

I do love the look of the case it comes in. I prefer a gravity knife myself, but autos definitely have a place in my heart.

You can see it's new condition on the first page and in the second picture. Here's what it looks like now.
It's been through hell and back on a variety of occasions. I've carried it every single day since my original post, and used it most of those days. I've used it to eat, to work, for life's daily necessities...even once used it to help save a life. It's been submerged for extended periods in freshwater and saltwater. It's been exposed to temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit and over 110 degrees. It's a winner in my book.
Here's the new picture that was posted on the first page:
Lock up and function is genuinely as solid and tight as the day I bought it. Just as snappy too. The finish is worn quite a bit from daily use obviously, but that matters very little in a daily carry knife.
I don't have a clue where the box is anymore but the knife has never left my side. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for a good automatic carry.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
Nice update! Thank you!
"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."
