    Those look nice. I like the grip that you get with G10. I would like to see the 490 come out with G10 scales.

    I had been thinking about getting an Explorer, due to the magnifying glass, for some time and when I saw it available with the Gadsden flag I couldnít resist.

    One little extra that I think is cool is that even though the explorer isnít suppose to have the pin slot, this one does. I replaced the pin on my compact with a threaded needle (wrapping the thread around the base of the corkscrew and will probably do the same with the Explorer. It has already come in handy.
    Very nice.

    Depends on the day doesn't it?

    I really like how the 940 carries, it just disappears clipped inside my left front pocket. I called Benchmade and they are sending me some deep carry clips for these. On the flip side, you just can't beat a Griptillian in my book, I've always got one of those around within arms reach it seems.

    I really like G10 for handle material, I think you can get g10 scales for just about any folder from a third party, but yeah it would be nice if Benchmade did more with G10

    I think I may have just found my next folding knife - Benchmade 495 Vector
    1C31E04F-A1C8-4D35-9016-3A547F80C939.jpeg
    Mechanism: AXISģ Assist flipper
    Action: Assisted-opening
    Blade Length: 3.60" (9.14cm)
    Blade Thickness: 0.100" (2.540mm)
    Open Length: 8.42" (21.39cm)
    Closed Length: 4.82" (12.24cm)
    Blade Steel: CPM-S30V (58-60 HRC)
    Handle Thickness: 0.60" (15.240mm)
    Weight: 4.11oz. (116.52g)
    http://www.benchmade.com/new/495.html

    I have the 490 which has a shorter 3.2” blade and aluminum handle. I really like the knife, with my only complaint being the smoothness of the aluminum handle. With the G10 handle, I just might have to try this knife when it comes out.

    That's a good looking folder, Benchmade is killing it right now with the stuff they are putting out.

    Love the SAKs, you can never have enough of them in my book. We need a SAK thread if there isn't one already.

    For your viewing pleasure.

    I picked up my Zero Tolerance 0850 Blue Carbon Fiber Sinkevich/Rexford colaboration today.

    I like it.

    I like Emerson and Benchmade .......... so I carry one of each, Emerson CQC 11 in my right pocket and a Benchmade Griptilian 551 in my left.
