    Hello fellow knife enthusiasts,

    My name is Benjamin Balik. I am originally from NE Iowa. I have recently relocated to the knife mecca known as Portland Oregon. I have many interest that require a quality blade. Most of my collection that I have accumulated is from gifts or purchases made out of necessity. My latest additions to my knife collection have been Benchmade. The factory store is just minutes from where I work. I found this forum in search of a BM 42. I just recently joined the Balisong community and everything that I have read so far points to the 42 as the gold standard. So begins my quest to find a 42 that made BM the company they are today. I’m planning on attending the knife show in Hillsboro Oregon this November. I’m also wondering what the chances are of finding one in person that is for sale. Or do I just take the risk and buy one from a reputable seller from this forum? I think I have an eye for quality made products. Buying something used at the price they are currently selling for is making me nervous. Any pointers are appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Benjamin Balik

    Hey Ben!!!
    WELCOME TO THE MIGHTY JD!!!
    You should have no trouble finding what it is your looking for here. As a matter of fact there is a mint 42 Springer in the voodoo section for sale right now from a very respected member, at least there was earlier. If you are getting into balis though, I highly recommend checking out what BRS has to offer. As far as production balis go, I'm a BIG fan of their stuff!!!
    Anyway, again , welcome to our little family!!! I'll be looking for you in the threads!!!
    :welcome3: :cheers:

    No problem, I went and checked to see if it was still there and unfortunately its sold, but they come up for sale quite often so you should be able to scoop one up fairly easily. Just remember, patients is a virtue!!! Lol!!!
