Back in my working days if I carried a nice $100.00 knife I would allways lose it, crawling in tight places or in ditches.
Bought a cheepo $20.00 one and had it for years!!!!

Quality costs more at first but pays in the long term.

Many consider S30V the best knife steel ever made. Buck knife said: "Possibly the best steel for knife making" You can pick one for under $200.00

LOL!

Same here.

I'd spend $50-$150 on an awesome titanium or stainless dive knife and lose it after 2 or 3 dives.

I made one by cutting down a steak knife... and made 3 more since I figured I'd lose it.

I ended up making 3 more sheaths and gave them to friends.

My benchmade ran me 129 but I would be willing to spend more when the funds allow

i have a kershaw in s30v that i was really hard on. its a much different shape than it was originally due to some arcing and other missfortunes but sharpens up nicely.

i replaced it with my benchmade in d2 after the assist broke and am still trying to decide which steel i prefer

How many of you guys use a $200 + knife?

I got my Gerber LMF II for $70 the most expensive knife I own and I as bad as this sounds don't want to use it. I am not afraid to use it I really like it. I just don't want to mar it all up. And I have not found my self in a spot that I need it.

But my Gerber Diesel I use all the time. I use to carry it every day. But I got a lot of looks when I would take it out at work or a legitimate reason. (work in a business environment.) So I swapped over to a good old Swiss army knife. I don't get the strange looks any more. I get people saying me "I should get one of those". Both of those knives are in the $70 ish range.

Too bad your too cheap to buy one....

I DAILY carry and use a Chris Reeve Umnumzaan, kinda actually beat the hell outta it TBH.

most expensive knives right now would have to be my Chris Reeve sebies large and small with custom graphics, followed closely by the Bark River knives, then Zero Tolerance...

Also used to make knives, too bad all my equipment to do so is in storage now.
