    Apparently knife technology and price have far exceeded my range of understanding. I'll stick to me knives being under $50 and my guns being in the $400 range. Interesting that anyone would even make something of that nature and price.

    For far less, and even lighter

    Gerber LST

    1.2oz and can be had for under $20.

    Sure it doesnt look as cool, but you'll cry a lot less when it falls out of your pocket in the back of the cab.

    For $400.00 it better do something more than cut!

    That's possible.

    Nice knife though.
    It looks to me like a titanium core (where the edge is) with bonded carbon fiber sides.

    Interesting looking, but I'm not getting the point (if you'll pardon the pun).

    I wonder how many people are willing to pay $400 for that knife.

    To the OP...
    $400 for that knife? There are so many others, for so much less.

    I guess I should have been more clear in my original post. $400 IS too much to pay for something of such basic utility. I personally would not pay that kind of money for the object in question. To me, it comes down to looking at what is possible in the hands of a craftsman with the materials he has in front of him. Of the $400 price, perhaps less than $100 go toward materials, the other $300 going toward the conspicuous consumption of "art". This concept applies to a lot of things in our hobby. Is a $300 handgun more or less capable of stopping a threat reliably than a $3000 handgun? Does a $75 leather belt holster offer its user a more or less stable platform than a $375 leather belt holster? There is art and craftsmanship in everything that we buy. It is a matter of personal responsibility to develop a sense of value for a particular item in our individual minds.

    On a larger scale it is these concepts that can turn a hobby into a cesspool of jealously, elitism, and perpetual dissatisfaction that not only drives off current members of the hobby, but persuades new people from joining the fun. I've seen it happen in the hi fi hobby, and in the automotive hobby. So far, I have not seen much of this rot inside the gun hobby, and honestly, I don't think I ever will. There are far too many normal folks, with far too many common sensibilities to allow the hobby to sway too far in one direction.

    Please don't get me wrong, I am not offended or put off by any of the comments in this thread. Nor do I wish to offend any of the other posters. My only desire was (is) to begin a discussion that goes beyond the simple objects that lay in front of us, I think that mission has been accomplished.

    Had I listened to my wife about family finances I would now be in a position to buy "art"... but instead I make do with a $1.50 looks-like-a-knife from the bin near the car parts store register. Married guys, take a lesson.
