    Great looking knives. I tend to be rough on my knives and wouldn't want to use these because they are way too nice. Give me a old used Spyderco and I am happy.

    Very nice, much too nice for me. While the OP didn't mention price, I suspect it's right up there. I don't carry anything I can't afford to lose.

    Nice looking.

    Questions for the OP. It uses a steel that's essentially the functional equivalent of VG-10, and has a ball bearing system for pivoting to improve smoothness and speed of deployment. Beyond that and the looks, do you think it's worth 10x the price of a comparable functional equivalent from, say, the Spyderco line? Difference in sharpness, durability, utility?

    * That said, I "get" the concept of custom and semi-custom knives. Nice stuff, but I always wonder about the practical utility improvements justifying the coin.

    Amazing! Great looking knife. They are about the same price as a "gold" series Benchmade but that knife is awesome looking. Unfortunately, out of my price range.

    yeah, but $700+ nice for an EDC knife? No thank you. beautiful, but the cost-benefit analysis says NO.

    Put the poster of these knives up next to the Lamborghini Countach on my wall.....

    Custom knives are a hobby. People who collect them (I used to dabble) buy them for the same reason people here buy Ed Brown over Rock Island, H&K over Hi-Point, pre-lock S&W revolvers over Hillary hole ones...

    They all work. The more expensive ones maybe work a little better, maybe not, but they look better doing it, and that's worth something to the collector.

    I know Mr. Begg from a knife forum, and he makes gorgeous knives, particularly his integrals. I would love to own some of his work, but it's not in my budget. I certainly understand the desire for one on behalf of those who can afford it, though.

    If you can find a Begg Treefrog, that's a very affordable full custom from Todd, and it's one of the sweetest little neck knives ever made.

    Yah, why bother if I can't afford the $400 slacks to carry it in, or something like that anyway.

    Not my piece of cake but nice blade, BTW.
