    I don't think there is a knife quite like it.
    Don't be too hard on the folks that get taken aback by the price since it does have an unusually hefty $$ tag as one of it's unusual features.

    It's just one of those unique ultra~high quality "expensive to produce" items that honestly will sell to some people.

    This is America & I am all for any American citizen spending their hard earned money any way they see fit to spend it.

    Many limited production items that are initially expensive greatly increase in collector value after they go out of production.

    Way back when I bought my first Galil rifle folks thought I was bonkers for spending $900 smacks (plus change) on an AK47 pattern firearm but now...in pristine condition they always fetch 3 thousand.

    Many ART folders sell for way over $500 and collectors still continue to snatch them up. They are a good investment & values skyrocket especially should the maker pass away.

    I am not really a serious knife collector though I have a few locked away.

    One of my most valuable knives I partially paid cash for & part traded Ivory for. I've kept it new and unused and my best guess is that its value has increased 5 fold since I bought it.

    It was crafted by a Pennsylvania Maker & after he had a stroke that left him paralyzed and unable to produce any more knives the value shot right up. Good for me - sadly, bad for the maker.

    So my advice is if you like it and it's worth it to you...buy one while you can still get one. Remember though if you're buying it as a future investment then it must stay in mint condition.

    If you're buying it to use it then don't worry about the depreciation & enjoy it...It IS a high quality neat as Hell knife & you only live once.

    I compare it to the H&K P7, its pricy and very nice, but there are others that do the same job at a much less price. Why do folks buy them? Cause they can.

    Trust me if I had the dough, I sure would. Make a nice addition to my collection, even if I didnt carry it.

    It would certainly look nice with my Alpha folder. I can't really comment on the cost, as I carry a Strider SnG as my EDC. Most people cringe at what I do with this knife, as it's a $400 knife, but when was the last time you saw this?



    That's not an optical illusion or trick, and it's not my personal knife. I'm so tempted to try it if the finish on my tip gets funky, but everything I've done to it just comes right off with a cleaning.

    B1526....I'll remember that photo if and when I'm engaged by a horde of rabid rolled-up quarters....I'll know that my Strider will let me take it to them dagnabbit!

    LOL!

    Seriously.....that is very impressive!

    You carry a Strider? I didn't notice when I saw you on Beretta Range Day...
