Benchmite leaf spring replacement

Post by ChuckD » Wed Sep 25, 2019 10:08 pm

Hello Vagrant,
Would you know where a guy might get his hands on some benchmade benchmite 3100 leaf springs or a suitable replacement? I do know that a clone model was around, years back but have never actually seen one.
I have several 3100s and 4 of the manual variety which I'd love to convert!
I am also open to 'making' leaf springs but would need much guidance from you! Or maybe some of the other, much more knowledgeable than i , members.
Thanks very much.
I love the site, mostly i creep around reading old stuff.....have a great night
Chuck

Al has been sick for quite sometime and probably won't be posting anytime soon.

You might be able to have one made. Haven't seen that knife for sale in quite awhile.
