It has been a while, but I finally bought another Benchmade, this time opting for the Spyderco Benchmade, i.e. the Mini Grip 555hg. It is an excellent knife and a full review is coming. But the reason I post is because of where I got it. I have no affiliation with any site out there, but when I see a good deal, I feel obligated to pass it on.
I got my Mini Grip at Outfitter Country. The price was SIGNIFICANTLY below Benchmade's mandatory uniform pricing of $80.75 (which is what the price is virtually everywhere, even ebay). I got my NEW 555hg for $63.00, and with shipping the total was $66.06. Quite the steal. I am sure Benchmade will hunt them down and either force them to jack up the price or cut off their supply, but get them while you can. At this price, the knife is real bargain. Shipping was quick too. This was my first purchase there and it went very smoothly. I can't vouch for them all of the time, but in my one small sample, I was very pleased.
