I have been twisting and turning between picking up a Bugout or a Para 3. I am leaning towards the Bugout because of all the positive warranty, replacement blade, repair reviews. But most reviewers are based in the U.S. Anyone (that bought their Benchmade from a U.S. online retailer) ever had to do a warranty replacement, repair or purchased a replacement in countries other than America? Did you need to ship it to Benchmade USA, and pay for the return shipping cost? Can I take the knife to a local authorised Benchmade re-seller in Australia and do any of the above? I would appreciate hearing your experience with Benchmade (and Spyderco and Hogue) warranty.
