I am a dealer for a couple different knife companies. I carry knives from both companies. SOG and BOKER. I have a meeting with a rep from BENCHMADE in early Feb. I need some advice from the people who are more experienced with BM than I. I have no direct dealings with them yet. Never owned one, but have read a lot. It is my tradition that when I place an opening order from a company I always get something for me to carry. So here comes the dilema. I have narrowed down my choices a good bit. I am not against autos, I am a LEO and a dealer so I can carry one, but not totally hooked. Help me out. I have a few listed in the poll. Any other suggestions let me know. I am looking for #1 a tool, #2 defensive, #3 outstanding performance. Let me know what you suggest. Thanks.
