I am not sure about this. I do know that Ti-Nives have a $1000.00 version of their folder. Only 50 were made. It is the silver, with damascus blade knife that you see in so many of their ads.
At one point Cold Steel made a San Mai damascus knife that was very expensive, but I am sure what the price was.

There a fine line between factory and handmade. The most expensive RETAIL price I've ever seen was the Cold Steel Japanese short sword that retailed for about $800. (Yes, it did cost more than the imperial Tai Pan)

Wait till some of the Microholics get a chance to reply but I would venture to guess it will probably be A Microtech. I'm not sure what they cost but what about the MT Italian or one of the CFO's in Damascus or any number of MT's Damascus style high enders.

I'm pretty sure that I saw a customized Emerson CQC7 with Titanium blade and Mastadon ivory scales listed "on sale" for $3,300. How do you get there from the $135 suggeted retail price for the stock production knife?

The $ 3300 dollar Emerson is a full blown dress custom, not the factory version of the handmade.Almost all of the factory designs started out as customs, Ernie was making customs long before he started his own factory.

The Giant Halo comes to mind. I think they went for about 5 to 6k, but I could be wrong on that.

Mike would know he used to have one (maybe still does).

The most expensive knife is that useless (China, Taiwan, Pakistan, etc.) POS, because you don't get any value for your money.
