    In around 1982 my girlfriend ordered me a custom made Bali-Song from Benchmade (I believe). It's a Weehawk style blade, brass fittings and whiteish inserts in the handle. I've had it stored away for the last 20 years after almost cutting of a digit with it.
    Any ideas where I can get some info on it?

    Thanks

    Benchmade was called pacific cutlery back then. Here are a few of their old catalogs.

    Depending on the model and condition they can be worth around $50 to $1000. post some pics up when you get it.
