Just to let ya'll know, there were only a handful of knife stores chosen to presale this knife. Every single one of them sold out. I would have joined this drop, but I already bought my presale from another company. I own several knives, many costing several times more than this one. I've never had a problem selling these high end customs whenever I wanted another knife or just was ready to sell for whatever reason. I guess what I'm saying is, there's no need to bitch n moan people. If you don't wanna buy it, don't. But I'm telling you, you've got a great opportunity here.
The people complaining about this "overpriced" Chinese knife don't know about the maker or his quality level. Not to mention, the custom version is way more expensive.
IDGAF if a maker forces you to fellate him until completion in order to buy one of these knives, $500 is a lot of money. That's a lot of money to pay for anything (Chinese made or not.) That's a month's rent for a lot of people. That's a car payment. That's a brand new Glock. If you want to keep it in the world of knives, that's TWO Benchmade 940-1's, TWO Zero Tolerance 0562CF's, EIGHT Spyderco Endura 4's or FIFTY Kershaw Crowns.
yeah yeah yeah..trying to convince yourself that your money was well spent...haha sucker!
You obviously haven't stepped into the world of custom knives. Google Todd Begg and see how much his knives usually cost. There are knives out there that cost $18,000.00. Try Ron Lake, Bill Moran, Enrique Pena, David Broadwell... List goes on and on. Begg putting out a production knife for $400 is not for everyone. I understand that. But if it's not for you, why do you have to hate on it so much? Or the people who do enjoy these knives? I personally own knives from all of the makers I listed above.....and many, many more. I also own seven thousand dollar handguns. Why? Because I can. And because I enjoy them. If you can't find beauty in these things, that's fine. But many people do. And it drives us to do well in life so that we can afford those things. I know why Guys like you hate on stuff like this so much.... I think you do too.
I've had plenty of custom knives and mid techs. Real Anso Zulu, Hoback A10 etc, Bodega. Just because his customs cost what they do, doesn't mean his factory made knife can command this price. The whole custom knife world is a scam including the ass backwards secondary market. Left it a long time ago.
