    Have used one for years.
    Good value.

    Liked and carried one for a while. Started carrying a flipper type when I had to travel through non auto knife friendly territories and ended up giving the two I had to a brother and his wife. I think I've still got one of the baby Kalasnikov knifes around, somewhere.

    Okay. Mine did not hold an edge as well as I would have liked.

    Switched to a Kershaw flipper, actually cost a little less (on sale) and holds an edge noticeably better.

    To me, an auto-knife is a novelty. I can open any of my Benchmades one handed about as fast as I can open an auto knife , and don’t have to worry about it opening in my pocket.

    Fortunately, all of my Benchmades were bought pre-owned and before Benchmade crapped in their own bed.

    I've been carrying a Boker since they became legal - I've never had it open in my pocket, and I've come to appreciate being able to open it w/a push of a button instead of having to flick it. Comes down to personal preference - but "safety" has NOT been a concern to me.

    Been looking for a Kershaw Launch 5 for under $100 but can not find one. Also discontinued so that does not help. It is the only Kershaw I like.

    Well I ordered the blue handle one today. Figured it wasn't gonna get much cheaper being discontinued. I have about 50 folders but none with blue handles.
