    Hi folks,
    As you know BM has taken a very anti-2A stance, and as such, I don't want to own any of their stuff. I don't fault those who do, but it's no longer for me. In any case, I mailed my last BM knife to a fella in PA, and I'm waiting for a CRK Umnumzaan to arrive today. :)

    I appreciate someone with your conviction. My bro-in-law is another I admire. Lifelong, hard-core NFL fan who stopped watching completely when the kneeling thing started.

    What is a “BM” knife?

    Sorry, BM is shorthand for Benchmade.

    Yep I got rid of all mine immediately after their stance on the 2nd and the democratic donations came to light and will never own another!

    I did however just pick up a Spyderco from a fellow addict yesterday and I have plenty of other American made knives!

    F benchmade:finger: along with any other company that’s sells us out. That list is getting long:bang:

    I guess I missed the memo about their political stance. I carried Benchmades for years and have several, but I switched to Zero Tolerance a couple or three years ago.

    I’ve been thinking about cleaning out my knife bin, and this can be my excuse to do it.

    Mine are all gone, too. My wife has a Springfield, though, so the house still contains contaminants. I try to pretend it isn't there.

    I agree. With so many quality American made knives available, why give our money to the "other side". Just my .02.

    I sold my BMs (to another forum member) after the news broke. They were used BMs so I don’t fault the buyer but I made the decision to move on. The Spyderco web then caught me and those multiplied. Spyderco is a great EDC alternative to BM. For outdoor adventures I still have and love my ESEEs.

    Your new CRK Umnumzaan is a classy choice and will make a fine carry knife. I’ve been looking at the same knife and would enjoy hearing your thoughts or seeing a review after you’ve had some time with it. Congrats!

    Just picked up my first CRK, I think you'll be beyond stoked with your decision. I haven't carried Benchmade since the early 2000s I feel like their production has gone down hill, add to that their anti 2A crap and they're dead to me.

    I dumped the 3 I had right after the news broke as well.

    That CRK Umnumzaan will serve you well for sure!

    I've been into blades and firearms since I could pee standing up. I always saw the CRK adds in the back of gun mags and lusted after one.

    I can honestly say after getting my first one, I understand what all the hype is about.

    Congrats on your new knife sir.
