f-Stop, makers of some of the nicest camera bags in the industry, recently profiled photographer Jeff Curtes.

This goes without saying but Chris King appreciates made in the USA products and in Portland, they’ve got a few like-minded companies to look to. A few miles outside of Portland lies the Benchmade facilities. Now, if you know knives, you know Benchmade and if you really want to get to know the brand better, head over to Chris King for an inside look at just how like-minded Benchmade is…
