$50 for a benchmade, though I am not opposed to spending more. I just find that my benchmade folder (carried daily) and my $30 ontario AF knife (in the BOB) do what I need them to do.

My dad carried a randall in Nam. It was lost in combat. I replaced it 4 him. 450 plus tax. This ain't the exact knofe, but similar vintage.

I paid $65 in a shop on an impulse buy for a CRKT M16-04Z but I returned it because it was rusting slightly after 3 weeks and mostly because I wanted a better M16 knife that I could buy online for less.

I'm not a knife guy, but I've paid $80 for a 1913 Sword bayonet (1907 is for the SMLE). This is a legitimately accepted Pattern 1914 rifle bayonet, and not a US 1917 model.

$250 or therabouts for an Emerson Commander BTS, in August of 2001...carried it every day since. It could use a resharpening on a part of the blade, but other than that, it looks just as good as the day I bought it. The Birdsong Black-T finish is freaking impervious. Next time I get a firearm refinished, that's the finish it's going to get. I've used this knife for everything from cutting cables/stripping cables, slicing my bagel in the morning, minor surgery, cutting steel and fiberglass shipping straps, opening boxes...about the only thing I haven't done with the knife is kill something with it. No nicks or chips in the blade at all; just could use a little resharpening in one specific area on the blade.

I'm thinking of getting 1 or 2 more, reasoning that in 20 or 30 years, this one might fail...and my kid (if I ever have one) might want one, too.

I have a Bill Bagwell custom Bowie knife, it is made with damascus steel, it cost 100 dollars an inch.
The blade is 9 1/2 inches long, you can do the math.
Link Posted: 8/27/2004 9:23:17 AM EST
I can't remember what I paid for it...it was at dealer cost which was 50% of retail. I think it was around $60.00 at the time. Not too much, but what a hellava knife.

I've never spent more than $50 on a knife, but I have spent a good deal on swords over the years. Think I paid $350-380 for what was called a German Backsword. It's a cavalry sword, only sharp on one edge. Kindof a transitional weapon from broadswords to rapiers. I think Del Tin armory of Italy still carries it. The make some really nice stuff.



I've alwyas wanted a really nice Katana, Wakasachi (sp?) and Tanto set though. That'd probably set me back a good grand or more for a really nice set.
Link Posted: 8/27/2004 9:38:10 AM EST
I think my little S&W SWAT cost about $45 when I bought it like 8 years ago... I like knives, but don't own too many of them, and don't have a collection... What I got works for me, so why get more?

110.00 for a Gerber Applegate-Fairbain covert folder. www.gerberblades.com/images/products/5785_lg.gif
I love the knife, but I'll never spend that on a duty knife again. I picked up the full sized version (A-F combat folder)www.gerberblades.com/images/products/5780_lg.gif lnib from BILLBO for a great price. (much less than I paid for the covert) I was much happier with that puchase.

I am not a knife guy, outside the kitchen I have one of those German Colt AR Bayonettes ($35) and my Dads AF orange switchblade (Schrade), and a Gerber Multi-tool for work($50.00) .

Yeah...he was one of the first ones through the gate during the raid on Cabanatuaan. I have a picture of him in LIFE Magazine kissing his M1 after the raid. His picture (amoungst many others) graces the cover of Hampton Sides book Ghost Soldiers.

I can't seem to get Hunt101 open right now, but when I do I'll post the picture of the cover with him circled.

I miss him...

$550 on a knife of my design made by
Harold Corby back in the mid eighties. No telling what he'd charge today. Have a Chris Reeve "Sebenza" in my pocket. That knife is over three
hundred. Most of the knives I buy these days are in the two to three
hundred dollar category. Some good makers offering their blades in that
price range.

I have that book, it is very good. When I was on active duty we did a demo for the old WW II guys, it was great to get a chance to meet those brave men.

The world was saved from evil men by those great soldiers. I can not put in word the respect I have for men like your Grandad.

Hmmm, my Cold Steel Katana probably cost a little over 400 dollars, it's not up there will the real thing, but it's a damn site better than a fifty dollar wallhanger like most of the rest of the class seem to have.

I was going to say you dont ahve to spend a grand to get a half decent Daisho and Tanto, but I guess three sets of four hundred dollars is over a grand.

Jeeze, I need to keep an eye on what I'm spending.
