    500 smackers for that? really. seems like a perfect knife for a guy with a $200 wallet..... My upper end price for cutlery hovers around $24.00 Still kicking myself for not buying a little rubber coated Kershaw that was on close out at Academy for $9.99 on Saturday.

    You mean the Victorinox? (There were 7 knives in all) Yeah, I thought it was a nice traditional looking slip joint but I bugged out when I saw the price. I am pretty sure you can still get a German made Boker in that Pattern for about $100 and a Case or other American make for even less. I'd be curious how well made it is to justify that price.

    I already have more blades then I can keep up with. My favorite is my cub scout knife.....it looks rough, but still perfectly functional. I should try to clean it up someday.

    UA, you just might want to reconsider your plan re:knives. The Boss says No and you are thinking of going ahead anyway, just how much do you like to hang with the boys, you got to sleep sometime (we've seen pictures) and she'll have access to knives. Think about it, man.

    I actually kinda liked that can opener doo-hickey (the one under $10).

    Not surprisingly, they picked the fixed blade - that's gotta be better overall out in the wild. Not sure where one can legally carry one though; I am pretty sure that's a no-no in NY.

    That's nothing; I've attended a few knife shows and the sky is the limit if you want jewels and exotic handles, etc. Of course those are hand made customs; I am really not sure why that Victorinox is so expensive.

    Personally i don't like all the visual bling but i will say I picked up (as in held, not bought) a fixed blade by Loveless and it was absolutely beautiful. It balanced in my hand perfectly and looked extremely well made. That is the kind of knife that will outlive you, your kids and their kids, etc. And work flawlessly in the bargain. It cost about $4k and that was a few years before he passed; I am sure that knife has jumped up a bit now. I'd have to win lotto first, but if I did, i wouldn't mind having a Loveless.

    Now I remember why I stopped my Outside subscription.

    $500 for a Victorinox is ridiculous. The appeal of SAKs has always been function and value.

    My sister gave me a Climber in the early '80s that I still use. These days I usually carry an Executive, a Classic or a Leatherman Squirt.

    If you want a collectible SAK, browse through Felinevet's collection at the Secret Order of Swiss Army Knives. http://felinevet.sosakonline.com/ind...tpage&Itemid=1

    a hunter, with his "improved" handle - much like this:



    I haven't seen that many Loveless fighters; they may be more rare (hence, pricier) than his hunters. I saw in an old Knife magazine that he made a one-off set of kitchen knives. They're easily worth six figures by now for the complete set.
