    They shouldn’t discontinue the Contego they should just get rid of all the horrible jimping.

    Switching from s30v to 20cv shouldn’t cost too much more, compared to switching from FRN to g10. If you look at benchmade custom shop for griptilian, upgrading from s30v to 20cv only cost $10 extra while upgrading to g10 cost $60 more. G10+20cv combined adds $70 more on custom shop.
    If you look at the MAP price of the standard 551 vs 551-1, the 551-1 cost $68 more, which is consistent with the price increase above.
    If this is the case, I’ll gladly pay $10 extra for 20CV upgrade.

    I'm not on the upgrade to 20cv train. While it should be better most production companies don't have it dialed in yet. Up the heat treat to 61/62 and we're good to go.

    Makes me wonder how much sales are down for benchmade. It's been a tough year for the company. I realize that the majority of models discontinued are combo edges but thats a big list. I'm surprised to see the presidio family go under. The otf's must not be selling good either. They are just too darn high. Oh well, guess thats the price of American made.
