I lost this Benchmark Rolox for 15 years. I was cutting up cardboard inside the back of my SUV and got distracted.
Later in the day I went back to get my knife and only the sheath was there. I searched everywhere inside that car and couldn't find the knife.
Years later, we were having our...
I bought a few of the Smoky Mountain exclusives in copper and bronze.
All were under $60 and IMO they're very well made for the price.
The mini proponent in copper is my favorite. Looks like a broken sword, but it's a very useful knife.

My favorites are the G10 Elites, I like the G10 scales and brushed nickel bolsters.
It was still common in NYC, mid-1960's, to see these guys driving trucks slowly down the street ringing a bell for knife sharpening.
My mother's set of Cutco knives was ruined by one of these street sharpeners.
I forgot I bought one of those until I read your post.
I remember browsing the knives at a store and saw it was a "Schrade" so I figured it must be a good knife.
The plastic clip for the lanyard broke almost immediately and the liner lock was so thin it was a joke.
Probably the worst knife I...
