    Holy awesome man/pocket jewelry batman!!! But that price though!!! I guess I'll just go be poor somewhere else with my $12 cutter.
    Pretty cool though.

    Well I do so go ahead and buy one and when your done playing with it for a couple weeks (keep your finger OUT of the guillotine hole!) You can send it my way and I'll actually use it.
    Deal? I'll PM you my shipping info.

    Is this a single-bladed cutter? Is the blade at least curved?

    I gotta say it... For 1000 that better have perfect grind on that blade. Also I can make this for wayyyy cheaper. Why is it so expensive? Is it really low production numbers?

    I wonder what’s up with the “New patent-pending Axis lock”? It seems to be located pretty far away from the pivot. As a poor non-smoker, that’s the most interesting thing about this release.

    Premium materials, low quantity. Gold line level finishing.

    Hmmm. I guess the blade is spring loaded and the axis lock holds the blade closed? Not familiar with these cutters...

    Yep the blade is spring loaded like an auto and the axis lock keeps the blade closed.

    So that's what's new about the patent-pending lock? It doesn't really have any application for normal knives?

    That's pretty sweet! :cool: But I gotta say, I think you guys are smoking something other than cigars with that price tag... o_O

    Maybe consider getting rid of the "bling", and offering a model for the plebeians for ~$100 or less. Might actually make more $$$ that way. ;)

    Whoa that’s a lot! Who could afford a 1000 for a cigar cutter?

    Product marketed at rich folks entirely. Seems like Les (the owner) is a bit out of touch with reality.

    In regards to the pricing~ I’m sorry but if you’re complaining about the prictag then it’s not for you. This is a collectors item and it’s marketed at a specific type of individual. This isn’t a product that’s intended to bring in mass amounts of revenue. Benchmade is a family owned company still and I don’t see anything wrong with making something nice just for the hell of doing it. You can say that Benchmade is out of their minds but the reality is that every single one of these will sell and they’ll end up selling for even more on the secondary collectors market.
