Hmmm ... If I'm "lucky" I might be able to spend $100 to $150 a year on knives.Just putting different scales on a current production knife is boring. (I agree)
And this brings up the question of price.
understand that price point may be difficult for some individuals. But I will also point out that the number of people who contribute regularly to this forum who do not spend that much annually on the hobby is so low as to be statistically nonexistent.
$25 to me is a lot of money to spend on anything based on my quote/unquote "income". After I pay my rent/R&B at the assisted living facility, I have roughly $40 a month left over. (Edit: I haven't owned a vehicle since 1995 or 1996. I decided then that gas and insurancs cost way too much.)
If I were to leave and get a senior apartment, I'd have even less after rent, utilities, and the grocer. In fact, I'd probably be in the hole.
I guess I should stop coming here, because I can't afford better than the basic Rough Ryder, have to save up for a BTI Old Timer, and I'm guessing the vast majority of my posts over the years have been non-contributing to whatever the conversation was?
