I don’t see myself paying much more that $100 for a knife. They are just tools.
It’s kinda crazy...
I've done it. A few times.... I got 5 Direwares.
Randall miniature 18 $2500 all day long. Have other Randall's
that are over $500.
I own a REKAT Pocket Hobbit Warrior that is rare.
I haven't checked in quite a while but several years ago the least I saw one listed for was $425.

Of course, I own and carry Glocks, not Wilson. I don't think I've ever paid more than 100 Dollars for a knife. I can't see that changing.
2500$ for a knife? Randall or not, that's a firm NO. SMH.
This reminds me, why are the bayonets from WW1 so damn expensive, they made millions of them.
The one I carry everyday was $500
Well, they stoped making this style as of 1920. I got this one for a steal, before I acquired the rifle.
in Europe, it’s hard to collect the rifles due to the laws, but you can collect the bayonets. I assume that’s why, big demand.
I was going to tag you but see you already chimed in.
I know a blacksmith that makes custom knives. He's been on Forged in Fire twice. Not sure how much he's getting for his wares these days but I know a lot of work goes into them. So I'd say $600 isn't out of line for his stuff. I won't pay that much but other people apparently will.
I collected a few handmade custom knives 40 years ago, paid $200-300 for them then. A couple I designed. In today’s money I am sure they would go fo more than that.
And they increase in price with age.
i have a smallish busse. i was commuting 200 miles a day. i called busse and talked to jerry for about 20 minutes. i wanted something i could extricate myself or someone else out of a car. he said if i put it in a vise and put a bar on it and was able to break it he would make me another. sold, 160.00 with sheath. quite a while ago.
I bought a Microtech Halo V and liked it so much I bought a second one (20% off).
I just checked BladeHq and the they are completely sold out of the Halo VI units. I guess other people like them too..
I had three Randall knives at one point that I had gotten for a song. I eBayed them for close to $2k.
I'd say my Halo is my most expensive. My buddy is ate up with Randall, but he usually manages to get them cheap. (comparatively)
I spent $300 on my microtech socom elite auto. that hurt. it is a remarkable knife. it still hurt. i will never again spend that much on a knife unless I need to replace this one (yes despite price tag I would purchase again immediately).
I am lusting after a Microtech LUDT, they around $250, much closer to just $200 w/ their law/fire/mil discount, but I am still hesitant. it is just a damn knife. I don't plan days around going out and having fun with it. couple flicks when bored on couch and back in pocket it goes.
My current knife is an original RAT Cutlery RC-3, the predecessor to ESEE. I’ve had it since 2005 or so. To replace it with an ESEE would be in the neighborhood of $100, underpriced if you ask me.
