    Enclosed is my truthful, and faithful review of Black Mamba Knives…

    A year ago I was looking for a Damascus hunting knife, primarily for skinning deer, and some hogs. I live in northwest Georgia, and we get a good bit of both to hunt, though hogs are more down in the south of the state… hey, I got a truck, and coolers… and a .308. We on!!! Anyway I was looking for a Damascus blade. The mix of steels when done right give you the perfect blade. Able to bend and not chip or break on bone, able to take a super sharp edge and keep it, and, just all around the best steel in my opinion, because of the “flex” in the steel, the edge, and just the durability and dependability.

    So why should you keep reading? Because I am damn picky!!! Yup, it is a fault, ask my wife! I looked all over the internet, and came across what was a sweet knife on Amazon.com. Yep, I was skeptical. Damascus, quality, basically up to meeting my pickiness on Amazon of all places? Well I ordered it. It was the Black Mamba Knives BMK-100 Hyena. 3 Deer later, still not re-sharpened, and still just like it came in the box. Well I did clean and oil it after the deer…

    It was the real deal. I was blown away. I reached out to Black Mamba Knives and was able to get in touch with Mark the owner. Could he make a custom blade for me? We texted back and forth, an email or two, because what I wanted was special to me, and took great trust. Great trust. He won me over.

    The knife blade I wanted what a copy of the blade of my U.S. Army issued Benchmade 9101-SBK, which carries a National Stock Number of NSN: 1095-01-577-1801. Yup, I got issued it in spring of 2005 somewhere on Camp Striker, Baghdad Iraq, infantry (yeah, I got a CIB to prove it). If you ever got issued one, you know how precious they are!!! And how amazing a knife they are!!! I have carried it daily since (well, pretty much, I did lose it in my garden for a while…). And I mean, even if I am in the shower, there is a good chance the knife is with me. I carry it that much. (I am just joking about the shower… mostly, well, not really.) Mark said I would need to remove the blade and send it to him so that he could spec. it out and make a true and perfect copy using a CNC. Okay I get that Mark, but, ummm… that knife is like a part of me, it is my “go to” and I am like naked without it clipped into my Wranglers… I understand you need the blade as a template, but, ummm….. NOT getting a warm and fuzzy on this… nope, not at all!!!!

    So I broke down and sent it to Black Mamba Knives in late December 2019. Mark said it would take a bit, maybe 6 weeks maybe a little longer, with his other orders and all that was going on at the shop. It was Christmas, lots of orders I am thinking, so my reply… “No problem” I said, as I reached for another knife to clip in my jeans, well I didn’t have old faithful, but, I at least, could open a box…

    Well, then covid-19 reared it’s ugly head in the middle of everything. Everyone was locked down, work outages, people laid-off, and everyone worried as all get out. I was worried and Mark was too. I stayed in touch with Mark, and he always responded right back. Yep, nothing he could do, my order would be delayed. (This was the week before my blades were to ship and only needed the time at the CNC.) But, Mark couldn’t get access to the CNC he needed because of the stupid Corona. Did that stop Mark? NO! It did set him back a bit, but, Mark and Black Mamba Knives are going to adapt, overcome, and improvise!!! Now there are a LOT of angle cuts in the steel, a beveled tang, a drop point, and the blade is ½ serrated. This was not going to be an easy job to do even with a CNC. But, BMK (Black Mamba Knives) and Mark pulled it off!!!

    During our texts and emails, over the time I waited, I got to know Mark more as a friend than just as a knife maker and proprietor of fine blades. We talked about the virus, how our lives were changing, how he couldn’t see his grand-children, but one thing really came across loud and strong. Was how he was so frustrated in not being able to get the work done the way he wanted for his customers. He felt like he was letting them down. He couldn’t do what, in his mind, he thought was the way he needed to get things done to serve his customers with the care, timeliness, and attention to detail that he wanted. That ticked him off. To the nth degree.

    My patience was rewarded. Wow, Mark had made 3 blades for me, I had ordered 2. I suppose (and this is only a guess, from getting to know Mark and BMK a bit) that he always planned on making 3. That way if one got messed up (like I said this was a complex blade design) on the first run, then he could adjust, and still fulfill the customer order with no problem and no issues. Well, I got the blades, tore down my old trusty knife (I had put it back together without the blade so I didn’t lose the springs), and swapped in the blade (and of course, he sent back the beaten to death, been to Iraq 3 times, been tilled into my garden on my tractor, tilled back up 2 years later, been run over by my dodge, and I don’t know how many times I have used it to cut everything from 550 cord to food… to you name it…) and bang, it was a perfect fit!!!

    DISCLAIMER: I do NOT recommend tearing down a Benchmade 9101-SBK Autostryker, this will void the lifetime warranty. Also, if you are not careful the springs shoot out all over the place and they are hard to find. You, Dear Reader, have been warned!!! Also DO NOT SEND BLACK MAMBA KNIVES A FUNCTIONING SWITCHBLADE!!!! Switchblades are illegal in Il. And would cause problems for Black Mamba Knives and Mark. They ARE legal where I live; and I am exempt under Federal Law anyway!!! Black Mamba Knives and Mark were only sent the blade after it was removed from the knife. Everything was done LEGALLY!!!!

    The knife functions flawlessly, the blade is a perfect copy. Sadly it was perfect!!! This is not a fault to BMK or Mark, this is just reality and life. I had worn down that original blade so much, the tanto angle had worn down. So when Mark make the copy, the blades also had a slight rounded edge to them. Now Dear Reader, you could get miffed or upset on that. But, when I took the blades made by Mark and BMK, and placed it dead on top of the original, they were an exact match. So BMK and Mark are not to blame for making exactly what I asked for; this one is on me, and I should have informed BMK and Mark that the tanto edge was worn (basically, away completely, from abuse and misuse) and could BMK add back the tanto edge and angle). Had I done that, I am sure the angle of the tanto shape would have been perfect. So again, not a mistake or flaw on BMK or Mark, I own this one, but, you know what? I actually like the angle better, and it cuts better for me anyway. I rather like the slightly modified semi-tanto better so I actually got an improvement, in a round-about way!!!

    During all this delay due to stupid Covid-19 I had bought another Benchmade (remember I felt naked…) 9101-SBK. When I tore it down the blade had been changed by Benchmade. So not all Benchmades are created equally. However, Mark had sent an extra!!! So, a rat file, and a little time on the bench with a Dremel 8220, a vice on the bench, and a touch of patience and cutting oil (you can’t put steel back on, measure, cut 1/2 and measure again) and that went into the new knife!!!! Works like a champ!!!

    To say I am stunned and amazed by the quality of craftsmanship, the honesty of BMK and Mark (due to this stupid Corona thing), and just how down to earth and just what great people everyone at BMK is, well, this has been a breath of fresh air in an otherwise hard time for all. There are real and good people out there; if you are thinking of the people at Black Mamba Knives, you have found them!!! And if you are thinking of buying a knife, don’t hesitate!!!! The quality in the knife you are gonna get is out of this world!!!

    I had written off ever getting my blades back. I figured with the whole corona thing, it just wasn’t gonna happen. Many small businesses are collapsing and going under. Tons of people losing their jobs and livelihoods. The money I had spent was water under the bridge (so I thought…), and I doubted there was gonna be much I could do about it. Water under the bridge… freaking Corona… a week later, a text from Mark, my blades were going to CNC on Tuesday and should be done Wednesday, and was this the right address to ship them to? Then a photo of the finished blades. I got them on Saturday. Into the knife on Sunday (after Church via internet). And Bang!!! The first (original) one was perfect as soon as it was in! The second one (remember Benchmade changed their blade design since mine was made for the war back in 2005) took a touch of work, but, no problem and poof, it is functioning flawlessly!!!

    To say I am a happy customer would be an understatement. I am a customer for life. Black Mamba Knives are flawless. Hands down. If it leaves Marks shop it is perfect. `Nuff Said!!! I have ordered 3 other knives, one has already arrived already (it was a standard pattern BMK-100 Hyena), and I know the other two (custom designs which take a little longer) are easily worth a 2-3 week wait. Those will be a slight modification of the BMK-100 Hyena to help with skinning hogs. The hogs are big, have tough skin, and needed a little modification on the original BMK-100 to suit my purpose.

    It is a long review, but, these are special times, and Black Mamba Knives are special people. Is the Benchmade Autostryker 9101-SBK the perfect general purpose knife? Almost. Is it the perfect knife with a Black Mamba replacement blade? I believe so!!!! Am I replacing my hunting, fishing, and just all round general purpose knives with Black Mamba Knives? Well, they are on order (Covid or not). So I guess you know the answer to that question.

    So how do I rate my Black Mamba Knives? I put them up there with my 20+ year old Dodge Cummins, my diesel tractor, my Savage .308, Ruger 10-22, Remington 700, or my 45-70 Govt. Marlin. I would put them up there with a 240 Bravo or a Ma Duce (If you are Infantry you know what I am talking about). Some things on day 1 are just going to stand the test of time. Black Mamba Knives are one of them. After 3 trips to Iraq, I just want stuff that works, every time, period, no questions asked. No excuses, no ifs, ands, or butt’s about it. Black Mamba Knives are there!!!

    I almost never give reviews (yeah, like ever, this is the first). This is one of the few times I have.
