    I originally wanted a 302, but simply couldn't find one for a comparable price when I was ready to get one, so a 301 it was. I'm not too torn up about it anymore :supergrin:



    I love my Minimalist and it's recently acquired big brother, the SPEW (stupid damn name...).

    Also, the higher end Minimalists are just awesome, but just a bit much for what they are. I'll still probably end up with one someday, they're about the same price as the Benchmades I've been buying recently. I like the little Baby Bears too.

    I had been working with the Benchmade Griptilian, but I'd been eyeballing this thing for a while.

    I finally got one at a good price, so I made the move. It's still getting broken in, but I'm loving it. It really fits my hand well and locks up tight. Those scales are G10. I love Benchmades

    I have several and always have one on me.

    It's a good knife, and they're cheap so if one gets messed up/lost, it's no big deal

    I've been tempted, but can't get past the skull logo.

    Stupid, I know.

    Once I get a proper edge on this it'll be added to the rotation:

    First time I seen Gibbs use one on NCIS I fell in love with it. Like you I could not find one priced like the 301

    I have one of those, too, identical to yours. Superlative piece of cutlery, using exemplary steel... even the handle finish is holding up nicely after 6 years of steady use.

    Started a new job, this is my daily carry knife as a result. Emerson CQCBT-7, non-serrated, non-wave, black ti finish.

    Only thing I don't like about it is the pocket clip. Way too big and ugly for such an elegant blade.

    They can be replaced. I've got a few Emerson made satin clips that dress it up. One has a skull and crossbones... I can post up pictures if your interested.

    Small sebenza 21 w/ micarta inlays. Smooth as silk and sharp as a scalpel.

    I had that one in black. It's a bit to narrow for my hand so I gave it to my son.

    I have no problem with the logo on the BC. I just hate seeing it on Toyota Camrys. :supergrin:

    Don't like it that much more. The more I look at it, the more I like it. It's all your fault for posting it again.
