    I guess I would just buy a large pj insingo inkosi.
    No way I would pay full retail for one without winning the lottery, and any CRK is way overpriced even on the secondary market on this side of the pond.
    Other than that? Maybe some annual Damascus victorinox, but I would probably just build a house and save the rest.

    I would finally buy myself a Tops Tom Brown Tracker.

    I acknowledge that this is a knife that I have no practical use for, and is not prohibitively expensive.

    It does strike that perfect balance of price and uselessness to put it in to the category of something I would only buy if I had stupid amounts of disposable income, even though my inner 13 year old still thinks this is probably the most badass blade ever created.

    Funny as I keep looking at those damned knives too! :D Stupid and useless? Maybe. Totally badass looking? Absolutely!

    Strange how the serious bushcrafter guys love these knives though.

    I bought my first Medford Praetorian this week, so maybe I’m nutty anyways. :eek:

    I would probably get:
    - Sebenza with Micarta inlays
    - Microtech Troodon
    - ZT 0456
    - Medford Praetorian (just for fun)
    - Every Exclusive/Sprint Run Spyderco I can get my hands on

    I remember reading an article about Ron Lake nearly 40 years ago in a knife magazine. Precision. Always wished I'd stopped by Bill Moran's shop in Maryland back then. There were several other notable talents back then.

    Just had a thought of something I would have wanted to do and that winning the lottery would allow is buy the Colonel Coon name and bring manufacturing back to TN. I think SMKW has the name and I know at one point Queen made the knives no clue who makes them now but regardless it would seem they weren't being made in TN.

    If it was an actual knife, I would want a legit Katana, made by a master swordsmith from the fuedal time in Japan

    Exactly what I was thinking—a sword worth at least $10,000 or else why even think about buying a blade with that kind of $$?!
