I don't think so. It's sort of interesting what's going on with pricing at the moment. Dan decided that he's selling the 711 too cheaply, so he's going to raise the price to $139.00 on Sunday. That's how much a RatManDu costs. And they're both made out of SR101. So you can have a 1/4" thick camp knife with a Res-C handle or a 3/16" thick utility knife with a Micarta handle for the same price. Either way, you can't lose. You just need to figure out which one you need more.
