For Immediate Release:
Custom knife maker and Benchmade designer Robert Wayne “ Bob” Lum died Dec. 4, 2007. His contributions to Benchmade Knife Company and the knife industry will live on through his distinctive craftsmanship and devoted followers.
Benchmade Knife Company sends our deepest sympathies to friends and family, including his wife Jean and son Eli.
“There will never be another Bob Lum,” said Benchmade product design manager, Vance Colver.“ Bob Lum took fairly common materials and turned them in to works of art. Every curve, line and angle of his knives is perfect.”
