I'm just trying to understand...to each his/her own.
Speaking for myself, yes, frequently. Sometimes they are great deals picked up on the secondary market and sometimes it's a knife that isn't stocked locally so it's purchased online. Sometimes it is an impulse buy on a brand new piece that isn't as wonderful as I thought it would.

In the grand scheme of things $100 on a knife is trivial. I'm a user and collector.
