I went over at lunch to get a gift for a buddy that is dog and house sitting for us while we vacation. He had admired my Griptilian EDC, so I figured he wouldn't be too upset with me for giving him one (he won't let me pay him). Well, I got a little carried away.




The OD green one is my EDC, The black one is my other new EDC, and the tan one is the gift. Don't ever go to that place with a wad of cash in your pocket...

I was there at 9:28 today and the door was locked but they open at 9:30 so I wait. The girls inside see me, five minutes go by they just look at me and nobody comes to the door so I left. That's disappointing too because I needed several things and have bought a lot from them but if they can't let me in I can't spend my money there so I'll go elsewhere.

Nice knives you got.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. All of these feel good in my hand and swing open readily. The mini's are more of an in the pocket knife, I want it clipped on to my pocket, easy to grab, and I'm getting good at swinging them open.

I got the larger Griptilian a while back, when the wife sent me to Cabela's to kill time while she shopped. Great knife. Holds an edge better than what I carried before. Not cheap.

I saw one of those today at the cigar shop. I already have too many knives, but I started dithering. Got out of there with spending just under fifty, on sticks only. Whew.

P.S. That Yeti sticker is rotting your brain.

I've got 3. Two big ones and one mini. Bought one of the big ones, found another at a Mississippi State football game, and found the mini when we cleaned out my wifes old car to sell it. No idea where it came from.

Mini had to have a new blade. Sent them all three back to Benchmade last spring and had them tuned, and sharpened.

Love these knives.

Yeah, seen that kind of stuff there several times. I don't go anymore.

Easier and cheaper to do it online anyway. I've always thought they were overpriced as it is.

Did you complain? I would use to online contact form http://www.houseofblades.com/contact-us/ Management can't fix what they don't know about.

No kidding! I have a hard enough time working in this pawn shop. They might as well just keep my paycheck, cause I'm always buying something. At least that's what the wife says.
