It is really nice in person too.  I liked this one a lot and was tempted to try and steal it from Benchmade's booth!  They were watching them pretty closely though, so I doubt I was the first one to consider it!  :P

I held out till the orange plain edge ones came out, but I just got mine in last week. It really is a great knife. Its my main work knife now. Everyone who handles it likes the thing and wants to get one. Definite winner on the 915.

Is it just me or does the Dual Pro seem like a much better deal? I realize the materials aren't as good, but a full serrated blade is a lot better than a gut hook.

Eh, I personally prefer the hook. Especially since its a separate tool and not just a notch cut into the blade.
Plus I don't like the way most makers cut the serrations.

Nice knife! I really like Benchmade (but still prefer Spyderco), but I do not really think the 915 is a winner. It sure is a great EDC knife with extra value. But as a rescue knife it lacks function imho. There are more than enough glass-breaker and belt cutter combos out there. Benchmade already has great rescue tools out there, think of the hooks or the Houdinis. A Griptilian plus a small Houdini are cheaper, but have more functions (the LED light). A Vic rescue tool is MUCH cheaper, and has a lot of more tools. Spydercos Assist costs 130 MSRP (915: 165 MSRP). ... ... ... I just can not see what makes the 915 a "knife of the year" - it IS a great new rescue knife. But, just another rescue knife.
