Benchmade's Contribution to Breast Cancer Research

Benchmade Knives promotes breast health

I stumbled across this very charitable program on Benchmade's site. Very cool! Benchmade's Pink Griptilian, which I had seen on knife retail sites, is a Sharp and Tactical Pink Ribbon of sorts. Benchmade is a visionary company that has set new standards in the factory-made knife industry over the past several decades. From their humble balisong-beginnings as Pacific Cutlery, to their groundbreaking and trendsetting partnerships with custom knifemakers, to this very good cause; Benchmade is always pushing envelopes. The following is from their website copy: "This knife is the right tool for the right cause," said Benchmade co-founder Roberta de Asis. "From research to patient care to professional education, the OHSU Cancer Institute is doing some great things to fight breast cancer, and we are proud to be their partner in the effort to promote breast health education." Benchmade has raised in excess of $10,000 USD with sales of the pink knife. To learn more, visit Benchmade's site or click here for Benchmade's press release

It's a great cause, but I have no need for a pink Griptillion.

I wasn't suggesting YOU should carry one, aeric, but if you wanted a knife for mother's day....Yeah, maybe it's the machismo talking, but I like my stuff in any long as it's black. But seriously who doesn't love breasts!?
