I had a Steep Country fixed blade but sold it to a friend.

My next one will be a 940 Osborne and a Mini Adamas (new in 2021)

How do you like the bugout? some say the scales are a little lightweight...what your opinion?

I was about to ask if anyone had an Osborn. Had my eye on one for a while
I have one. honestly, it's feels pretty small in my hand but it's overall a great knife.

lost my benchmite, that one hurt, went to look for a replacement....not paying those prices.
 
I have a bunch of them, always had great service with them.

Carried a Mini Reflex for a decade in uniform. It is retired now, deservedly.

Since someone asked about the lightweights with the plastic scales, I have been carrying/using a Casbah daily for about three years now. It has held up just fine, digging under my fingernails, cutting boxes, wire, skinning numerous critters, and it always serves well when someone brings a cake to work.

It is kind of a pain to clean icing/fat/blood/guts, etc. out of it, but I'm still carrying it, so it's ok.

It IS noticably lighter than it's Griptilian brother that is almost exactly the same size.
 
I actually did use their customer service once, totally my own fault. I must have flicked that little Reflex 272,310 times sitting in my cruiser, until it actually broke.

Called Benchmade, and they sent me a box and shipping label. Sent it back, and they rebuilt it. Return letter said it was the first one they'd seen actually worn out...lol.

No charge of course, and only took a couple weeks before the internet....

Nice knife. Been carrying the Super Freek for a while.

I have a 551 Griptilian and a Grizzly Creek with the gut hook. I keep them in my truck for skinning game. Gut hook is great for starting the cuts for skinning deer

Here is Rick James
