I knew I got a deal, but damn

it was a good deal A guy wanted to sell this knife, for $50 so I bought it knowing that I was getting a good price, it was still in the nylon bag and looked as though it had never been taken out, the blade doesn't have any scratches on it........nice I've priced them from $160+++

It looks just like this one.

I have that same exact model, had it issued for free It's a great knife, I carry it every day and it shows very little wear considering all the use it has seen. The tanto style blade is a lot stiffer than the seal point Benchmades. Go to the BM sight and see what MSRP is on that lil beauty.

I have one of those also, and an AFO. I just love the Stryker, wish I hadn't lost my other one.

You know I keep telling myself I need to get one, the factory is only a few miles from my house and a really good family friend is their HR director. Maybe I will see if he can get me a hook up?? It is nice to hear so much positives about them, I had a friend get one when they were really new to the market. He is somewhat of a "knife snob" and he couldn't stand it, ended up taking it back to the main office and telling them to keep it.

Benchmades are nice I lost a mini reflex at the beach a few years ago.If your into cool knives check out Microtechs,very cool & very expensive but also the old ones are built like a brick wall.I have one(mini socom) that I use on a daily basis that that has a 12/98 mfg date that is still as tight as the day I got it.

Well right there is another reason to love living in AZ. I'm not LE/mil and I picked up my auto in the middle of the the mall Now the problem is going to be not being able to carry it when I move to another state

Very nice!!!

I've got a 3 1/2" blade Benchmade Stryker with the composite handle & titanium liner.. Its a very durable knife that wont let you down! FWIW, I paid about $60 for mine back when I worked at a knife shop.. and that was well under cost. We used to sell these for about $175.

FWIW, switchblades are legal to own here in Arizona as well as Oregon.
