    Well JD I think I hit the jackpot last night

    For some reason I checked Craigslist on a whim for the first time in months, searched “ benchmade” and got 3 results...

    The same mini-infidel listed twice...
    AND A BENCHMADE 42!

    Listed for $350!

    And I talked him down to $325!

    I drove an hour and a half each way in sub-zero temperatures, but there was no way I was letting this knife get away from me.

    I saw a Craigslist ad for a very nice looking M1 Garand for $150, couldn't give a definitive condition rating because there was only 1 pic but it looked really good, these guns sometimes go for thousands.

    I don't think I even took a breath before I contacted the very elderly fellow and found out he had just made arrangements to sell it to another bloke. Win some lose some.

    I can't really complain I've come across some really great deals, deals that make your friends stop talking to ya for a lil while cuz they are so disgusted with your shit luck. Lol.

    I guess that the best CL deal I made was when I got a Spyderco Mariner from the early 90s for 8 dollars.

    The knife is definitely legit, I made sure to carefully inspect it for clone components before I let the guy walk away with my cash.

    Never thought I’d see a 42 on Craigslist, but I’m damn glad I looked!

    Yeah dude that's legit. Great find! I think it's funny when I see ads on gunbroker or other similar sights listing super rare benchmade 62, 63, etc.... smh

    usually there's only clones, but occasionally there's legit stuff.

    Picked up a NIB Bowen belt knife back from the 70's for $45. After we talked for a few minutes it came up that I collect balisongs so he threw in this CCC he had laying around for free, no doubt it's going next to my custom tach and ti bas-r:helix:
