In a continuation of our industry profiles and audio interviews, we talked to Les De Asis of Benchmade Knives recently, and we wanted to share our conversation with you. During the course of our conversation, we talked about the history of Benchmade, some of the new products coming out this year, and we hit on a little politics and issues that concern the knife industry as a whole.
The interview is a solid hour plus change, but we think it was a good discussion all around. So, kick back and relax a bit and we'll get started.
