Condolences on your Fathers passing!
RIP Les. You built one heck of a business!
My sincere condolences. I met him at the 2012 Bladeshow, he was outside smoking a cigar. Talked to him about the Contego I had just purchased before my friend told me who he was. He was a very nice man and I really enjoyed meeting him.
He will be missed.
I spoke with him just a few years ago at BladeShow Atlanta. A wonderful human being. Rest in peace Les.
RIP, Les. Man, what a giant of the industry. This is a big loss.
Les had a massive impact on the knife world, this is disappointing news.
So sorry to hear that. Benchmade knives set a high standard in innovation and quality, a testimony to its founder.
condolences to all concerned...
a truly amazing pioneering knife
visionary who raised the manufacturing
bar to such a level
that it still continues to inspire so many to emulate the company he founded as a knife industry standard.
he shall be missed...
Didn't know him, never had the pleasure of meeting him. But what a legacy...
A little piece of him lives on in tradesmen, collectors, enthusiasts, soldiers, hunters, and on and on every single day. Every time someone reaches into their pocket or pulls one of his knives out of a sheath they pay a tremendous homage of respect to him and his knives. And that is millions of "someones" that do that every day.
He will never be forgotten.
My condolences and prayers to his family.
Prayers sent up for you and your family.
RIP Les. Bought my first Benchmade's in the mid 90's a AFCK and a Benchmade Emerson, still have them. My first intro to quality knives, and a start of a great collection.
Rip. Loving my Benchmades, have one at the mothership being taken care of. I will proudly use them and always be glad for the company he built. Condolences to the family. He will be missed!
Very sorry for your loss a true giant in the industry
Sorry to hear that, sounds like someone whom will be dearly missed! Condolences to his family.
Sad news, prayers sent high for him and his family.
RIP Mr. de Asis. Sad news.
He'll still be around with all of these pisser knives getting used, gawked at, and loved. Rip to him, brother. He's most likely smiling and gonna meet some new, good folks while he's waiting to hang out with you again.
Sad to hear, rest in peace.
