    Damn! I really liked their knives too. Oh well, no more of my money going to them so they can give it to the Democratic party.

    I have been a benchmade fanboy for over 20 years. Not anymore. Gerber was openly supporting Anti-2A stuff in the 90's

    There may be people in the corporation that are 2nd amendment supporters but giving money to democratic candidates shows the direction they intend to head as a company. I would like to see who was in charge each if those years listed 2010-2012 did the leadership change around 2012-13 that they completely stopped giving to republicans?

    Thanks for posting this gaijin. I have used and promoted Benchmade knives for over twenty years. Even extolled their virtues on this very forum. I think they make a fine product and have good customer service. I loved having an American made knife from a company that supported us boys in blue. BUT I cannot abide those that seek to degrade the second amendment and push socialist ideals. There's a bunch of good American made knives out there created by upstanding patriots. I will find one.

    Yep....was eyeballing a BM Infidel but didn't want to part with that much cash. This sealed that deal. No BM for me. I still have several others, but, will not support their left leaning and Democratic contributing business.
    I am curious. Does Benchmade think once the Libs have taken all the guns, that they wouldn't come after knives too? Or maybe they think their political contributions would insulate them from that happening.

    So I couldn't carry my Benchmade in good conscience one more second. Today I was at my local Tractor Supply store and bought a great little Case pocket knife exactly like the one I had as a kid. It's their Sod Buster Jr. with the yellowish composite handle. I guess I forgot how much I loved this knife until I picked it up today. Case has been an American company making knives in the good ol USA since the late 1800's. They make em in Pennsylvania I believe and are now owned by Zippo. God willing I won't find out they're a liberal cesspool too. Here's a photo of today's carry. Have a good evening friends and God bless the USA.
    Hmmm. Having trouble uploading my photo... I'll keep trying in my next post.

    Centuriator, thanks for posting that. It does help my opinion of Benchmade. I'm still wary of their political contributions and will not support Benchmade but I do appreciate that they addressed the concerns of the 2A community. I actually never had a problem with BM assisting police in destroying seized weapons. In my 20 years in law enforcement I destroyed hundreds of seized weapons and I can tell you that most aren't worth saving anyway. Crooks don't typically take good care of their stuff. Many seized weapons have altered serial numbers and are in disrepair in general. My issue is when Benchmade offers assistance as a POLITICAL move or when they support liberal, gun grabbing politicians. Jury is still out on the political stance of the company.

    So I think something is wrong with the technical functions of this forum. I can't upload photos. Is anyone else having trouble?
