An open letter to Donald J. Trump.

Dear Mr. Trump:

First, thank you for what you are doing for the USA. Your honesty and courage has helped bring this great nation together working towards higher goals like I have not seen in years.

I don’t actually care much for politics. In fact, I willing de-registered myself from the voter rolls after the last presidential election. My friends would probably call me very cynical, however I am working to improve that. I do find this campaign very interesting however and you are very entertaining and smart. Keep up the great work.

I know that you are an avid golfer, in fact probably much more so and better than our current commander in chief. After your campaign settles down and your term in office starts, I would imagine that you would be playing a few rounds of golf to relax and mediate a bit. As such, you will want to ensure that your golf game is of the best caliber.

Therefore, I am offering my services as a Caddie to help with your golf game!

Now I am not just some schmuck. I legitimately am a great caddie and will ensure that you have a solid round of golf. I have caddied at three USGA events and have the expertise to ensure that your golf game is at the elite level. I also have over 3 years of caddie experience at a prestigious golf course in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am an avid golfer myself, traveling across the world to play golf.  When you travel to California, let me know and let’s get a round going!

Together, we will not only Make America Great, but we can Make Golf Great Again!

A Review of the Benchmade Knife Service Benchmade LIFESHARP

I proudly state that I am a happy owner of a Benchmade knife.

Knife!
A Knife! (not the actual product  or service reviewed)

Benchmade makes quality knives and has great customer service as I will detail below. After my admittedly a bit spiteful rant about the Breeze car membership service (read at link here), I am returning with a post about a very happy experience I had with the Benchmade knife company.

I bought a knife a while back (May 4, 2012 to be exact; as evidenced from my amazon receipt order history). After almost 4 years it was time to get my tool sharped so to speak. Little did I know how dull it was until I received the finished product, but more on that later.

Benchmade advertises:

LIFESHARP SERVICE

There’s never a dull moment with a Benchmade… That’s right! We will gladly re-sharpen your Benchmade knife to a factory razor sharp edge (service does not apply to any serrated portion of the blade). If you prefer us to sharpen your blade, or if you may have neglected to maintain your edge for a while, simply ship your knife to us. We’ll not only sharpen it, but we will also inspect the knife for any warranted repairs and “tune” the knife for optimum performance. (Source)

I sent in my Griptilian knife on February 5, 2016 and it was back in my hands on February 22, 2016. Granted I could have received it on Friday February 19, 2016 but I was not home to sign for the package for UPS delivery.  Now this is not the speediest of turnarounds given the now expected two day shipping and customer service standard set by amazon, but for free sharpening and free return UPS shipping, I am very, very happy.

The only cost to me was the shipping to Benchmade to have it sharpened.

 

Status Update!
Status Update!

 

Resolution items as noted on the receipt:  “Replaced screws, omega springs. Cleaned, Adjusted, Oiled, and Sharpened as needed.”

My knife is like brand new. (Aside from the scratches that I made on my own). The blade is super sharp. Spring brand new and fast. The clip tightened and now fits snug in my pants.

Ready to Go!
Ready to Go!

Overall I am satisfied with the work done and great communication including  an e-mail on receipt of my shipping to Benchmade and an e-mail with tracking info when the service was completed.

This exceeded all expectations.  Thanks Benchmade! You have a happy customer!

I highly recommend Benchmade knives. Get one today!
