I sure wouldn’t mind this kind of tool, especially since it already carries my initials! What about you? Do you carry a knife or tool every day or in your car? If not, I think you should. Due to new national laws in Sweden, I personally have to keep any “sharp objects” in my vehicle, which is such a shame.

    So they made a Benchmade Triage?

      @EzGoingKev Actually, Hogue trauma but it is basically the same stuff, right down to the same blade steel.

    Pretty sure Hogue is making that for them.
    Their’s is called the Trauma. An almost exact copy of the Benchmade Triage. I have several Triages and also one of the Traumas. They are some of my most carried knives and I have a lot to choose from! They carry thin in the pocket, are very handy with the belt cutter for all kinds of things you don’t want to cut too much or deep. The actions are very good with a little lube and carry time. Should be a winner other than price.
