Local store has a sale on Les Stroud's Camillus knives. I'm giving serious consideration to spending a whopping $25 on the folder just to see first hand what I think of this knife regarding steel and overall quality. The folder is the only one that I might really use often enough to justify buying.
It is within the price range of the knives I usually buy but I wonder if I am too jaded or even a knife snob because it is 440 and considered by many to be a "gimmick" knife.
I don't buy anything remotely expensive but own some pretty satisfying knives under the $30 price point. Just received a Mora 2000 and CRKT minimalist bowie and wonder if the Camillus would be "backsliding"...LOL. Will let you know what I think of it if I do buy one tomorrow.
