    Another one I felt so compelled I had to drop everything and post it here. This is over $1K...let that sink in.

    How could they even sell one of those at that sort of price?
    Even if it didn't look ugly and stupid it would still be hard to justify a price tag like that.

    I could be wrong, but that looks a lot like the Crusader Forge Apex series. Haven't seen a grind quite like that before, but the Apex is a stout little folder. And yes they routinely go $800-$1500 with some one-offs commanding (and getting) close to $2k.

    You may be right, it looks to have crusader forge styling

    Crusader forge is indeed what that is. Next to the "blood groove" or whatever else people call it besides the thumb opener it is, theres a crown like logo which belongs to crusader forge. To be honest though other than in price tag im not sure why that's an LOL...Small stout titanium framelock that looks to have convex tip for prying or chiseling and a nice main bevel for regular cutting.

    Hey! I have one of those! :D I got it in college, when one of my professors, (who happened to help get me on the SMKW catalog mailing list) knew I liked knives, and picked it up at a garage sale for me. No clip, heavy as a brick, but it has a unique one-handed opening mechanism, and by golly, it was patented! :eek:

    Really, it's not a bad knife. Mine is a little better quality, with no rivets showing on the handle. Made in Japan, I'm guessing late 80s, or very early 90s. My hands are a tad too large to hold it comfortably, but someone with slightly smaller hands could make it work.

    Whenever you may need a very expensive modular pocket filler with identical bottle openers and a driver for bits that you clearly don't carry.
    The tac tool

    Honestly I think these silly "tactical tools" have gotten way out of hand. $800 for a piece of copper with a couple holes in it?
    Use it and get a charge? No thanks, thats pistol money.

    There's the ticket. Is that the arm of a 12 year old with those?

    10+ oz titanium framelock with a 2.75" blade made from quarter-inch stock? LOL.

    I wonder if the handle material is actually from a military vessel. If his partner made it, I would wager that while boasting it was from a military vessel, it actually comes from a prison ship.

    Bottle openers! Dual bottle openers even! Never had use for a single myself. If I get one that's not a twist-off I prefer a screwdriver or just about anything that's handy

    Ugh...My coworker carries a knife just like the bottom one on his belt. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was gas station garbage and he'd be lucky to cut through a wet paper bag with it. Dunno how he gets away with carrying a tacticool mall ninja blade clearly designed for "fighting" (it took me a while to properly process what I was typing here, this knife is too much) in a big ol' Canadian city. Kind of makes me want to carry my Rajah 2.
