Why do people who have nothing to contribute to the conversation feel like they need to crap up the discussion sections anyway?
isn't this comment technically exactly what you are saying you dislike in other people's comments?
Small minds - and the likely realization that their budgets would never allow for such a high quality custom knife purchase. The missing realization that you often times get what you pay for. As my Grandfather wisely taught me from a young age, buy cheap, buy twice (or more). Purchase the best you can afford.
This is the beauty of Massdrop. They source and offer a very eclectic variety of from high-end to economy priced products. A taste for what the masses ask for, which is exactly the way it works here. People likely voted to have this specific knife offered. With the price tag, perhaps dozens or less ordered. And this wide variety is exactly what keeps me coming back. While some people sadly will never experience the joy of a well crafted fully custom small batch US made knife offering for their kitchen cutting needs, there are those who will appreciate the quality AND the discount above what knives of this fashion can be found for elsewhere.
While I'm new to this manufacturer myself, more of the high quality of their offerings can be seen on their site I've located here: http://californiacustomknives.blogspot.com/?m=0
Here's to more Massdrop variety (without the unnecessary jealousy-hate), my friends. Great products for budgets of all sizes.
"Small minds - and the likely realization that their budgets would never allow for such a high quality custom knife purchase."
You could make half a dozen of these (same steel/scales/pins) for less than the cost of this one. Don't try to act superior to people simply because you have more disposable income than they do, or not enough sense to not waste money on something that's overpriced to begin with.
Yes, the same goes for any custom knife. The materials are not the majority of the cost. You're also paying for the design, the build quality, the heat treat, and the grind. Not just anyone can take the raw materials and make a knife anywhere near this nice.
I most certainly cannot. Though I do have a handful of Spyderco knives serving various purposes indoors and and out, that have rang up for prices similar to this custom kitchen knife.
But it does sound like you may just have a calling in the high end custom knife manufacturing business. I wish you luck. When you can deliver quality products that demand $300+, you've got it made.
I'm sorry you feel my reply earlier was meant to sound all high and mighty. It wasn't intended to be in any fashion. There are many items that MassDrop has carries that were/are outside of my budget. When I see them, I find it far more useful and personally beneficial to dream and continue to window shop rather than shit all over the comments sections for the fine products I'm jealous of simply because I can't afford them.
You don't like an item? Feel its too expensive? Outside your budget? Don't pitch in on the drop. Pretty simple stuff.
