I saw this knife on an instagram post and went searching for it. Luckily, Knife Art had it in stock. Price was great, shipping was fast. Overall a very nice experience. I will return to Knife Art when I am looking for my next knife.

Benchmade has a nasty habit of producing utterly peerless production knives, then discontinuing them far too soon. A dated example would be the venerable AFCK and its mini version.. Followed by this little gem. Sheepsfoot blade with Spydie hole is a match made in heaven, beautiful satin finish on great steel and buttery action from the phosphor-bronze washers. The grip feels cheap but isn't, and there are lots of custom options around.. Definitely get one before they sell out! Phenomenal EDC and lighter than expected.
