I would recomend going to a authorized dealer and handling one in person first. For me they are worth every penny. If your active duty military or a first responder or a veteran you get a 30% discount when ordering from Benchmade. I like them a lot and they use really high quality materials/steel. I have used Spyderco amd don't get me wrong for the price point they are great but they get a lot of their stuff from Taiwan and the Benchmade also felt nicer in my hand. The perfect amount of weight and texture.
Here is what made me decide on Benchmade
1. Lifetime warranty
2. Lifetime sharpening warranty
4. Made 100% in the USA(some older ones weren't but now they are all US made)
P.S. if you buy make sure they are authorized dealers there are way too many counterfeits out there.
