So I frequent the local pawn shops and flea market occasionally. You just never know what you might come across. I’m a sucker for a deal. My latest acquisition was a doozy A Benchmade 119 Arvenis…for about $40 bucks out the door. It was in its sheath in a display case with a bunch of other junk knives…I saw the Benchmade logo and tried to ask discreetly if I could see it. The salesperson presented it to me, it had a very small blemish in the edge. Someone had dropped it apparently on the edge.I tried to hold back my sh*t eating grin and said I’ll take it. I got it home feeling like I just won the lottery…and after some time on the stones, I worked out the nicks in the edge. It’s big, sturdy and hair popping sharp…I call that a win anyday!
So does anybody else have a pawn shop, flea market, or thrift store find to share?
