I was referring to the cost of that trapper. So far as I know, that is not the 2019 forum knife. GEC does not seem to make enough knives in a run to meet the demand for any pattern. If they are sold out, how much money you have is irrelevant; GEC and their dealers don't have one to sell you. You are forced to pay inflated prices on the secondary market for one - if you can find one. "High Demand + Low Supply/Availability = Artificially High Prices." That is Basic Economics, Pre-101. I remember when Pontiac introduced the Fierro. Demand was high, and they were near impossible to find in stock at a dealership. They will selling for 20 to 30% or more, above the window sticker price; if you managed to find one at a dealership, until Pontiac increased production to meet demand. I have difficulty justifying to myself spending over $25-$30 or so for a knife. I try to spend less than $20, if at all possible. Yes. I buy mainly Rough Rider, Marbles, and BTI Schrade. So far, they have done everything I need. My "more expensive"/"most expensive" tend to be a standard production Buck 110, or one of the SK Blades SFO 110 LT knives. Well under $40, at any rate, and I have to save up for those, or go without something else that I need/want. I had to save up for three months to get the 2018 Forum knife. (I started saving before all the details had been decided.) At the time, I had never spent that much for a knife in my life. My SK Blades "The Gentleman" Buck 110 cost a bit more, but was still under $100 delivered to my door. However, it was several months after the forum knife when I bought it. When I first joined BF I had difficulty justifying spending over $15-$17 for a new slipjoint. (I even had a fairly good paying job back then. I had not yet been forced to retire because my blood pressure was up and I could not pass the DOT driver Physical.) However, inflation has hit hard - as usual.
