My bargain shopping is saved for the other expenses in my life. Figure I make it up there, and it all works out in the end.
Shame?...perhaps a bit harsh
I have to laugh at those that criticize those who have the means to pay premium prices for things they want. Having large sums of disposable income would change most people's spending practices.
And for those that criticize be aware that 99.9% of the general public view spending $260 on a pocket knife is just unfathomable if not sick. That's not even considering how many knives the buyer already has...kind of affirms the old "those that live in glass houses..." saying.
What is wonderfully relevant at the moment with this thread, is that folks are receiving their 0560/61 knives and that is what the chatter should be about. Not life styles of a few people.
Stay tuned. More chatter coming soon.
Why is it assumed that everyone who purchased a 0560 paid a premium? A lot of us paid $260. What are you intending to pay?
Question: I sent a pre-order email to Kershawguy a couple months ago for a 0561, but I didn't get any reply. Is that normal? I didn't want to send a follow-up email because I thought it might screw up his system of one email per pre-order.
Your second point is great. The public at large would think we all are a bunch of idiots for spending more than 30 on a knife. I remember when I paid 60 for a leatherman, and thought I was in the uber premium knife market.
I don't have large amounts of disposable income but I can pay for my folders.
Can I have mine now? I'll pay for expedited shipping! How's that for being a high roller??
One guy told me I was an idiot for spending more than $3 on a knife. He use to buy those cheap china crap at gas stations. He kept telling me that till his lock failed and it closed on his hand and cut him so bad he almost lost a couple fingers. After that he bought a cold steel voyager at my recommendation. Now he is EDCing a ZT0200.

Oddest dream last night...I was in a grassy meadow, there were these track hurdles (weird right?), I can't recall much else as it was all kinda a blur...
It seemed so real, yet I know it's was just my imagination...
