expensive blades?
#1
Does anyone here own one of those $1k-$3k knives? I know it's none of my business, but I just was wondering what is the reason of buying them (besides "i just couldn't live without it" and "because I can"). I mean I can understand expensive guns - more accurate, longer distance, etc., but knives??

What brand and what are the "selling points." I know that people spend $200 - $600 (mission & chris reeves). Not familiar with 1,000 or 3,000. I think id take my spartan blade against any other knife any day. what do you carry?

I don't think I've ever payed more than $40 for knife. I don't understand it either. If I had the money I might pay up to 3 or 4 hundred but only if the knife was usable.

Sounds like me. I don't see spending a lot of money on a knife that I won't want to use when I can get one that works for me for less. I think the most I've spent on one was about $50.

Here is one example https://steeladdictionknives.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=6308&osCsid=3fa0ee05715de4e7983db9f6bad97d10
My EDC knives are $80-$150 knives top. Currently I carry Sog Flash II.

I have one that was made for my father by a custom knife maker. Its a combat/survival knife including sheath with a surv kit. We stabbed a few car doors. We didnt pay for it, it was a gift.

oh geese on the "steel addiction knife".
One thing i noticed is the blade is fully titanium versus a coating - which could explain the $$
Also the handle is "pearl".
Then the custom detail.
To me this knife seems to be "pretty" and for people with nothing better to spend their money on. I would never,ever,never,ever take that knife and expect to be able to defend myself or survive out in the wild.
For a real knife.. spartan blades. Straight BA.

A good quality heat treatment is more important than the steel,provided you are using at least a standard quality tool steel with .8% carbon or higher,IMHO.
