Since it's not competing in the ounce-shaving department all that does is raise the cost--Ti tubing is made crazy expensive. It's also about 5 years late.

    Just my opinion, though. I fully commend anyone who likes it. It's just really not for me at all.
    When you break it down, I tend to agree with the above statement. Except the part about it being 5 years late. It's never too late to add a knife to the collection.
    As a matter of fact, later is better! Late at night when my wife is sleeping is actually the best time for me to add to my collection.

    If you are still itching to get one, Knife Center is quoting $140.00 according to the e-mail they sent me.

    wowzers! I purchased a Turley for less than that! sweet knife, but I think your cash is better spent on something else. If you're not into waiting for a custom piece, maybe an F1? or a bark river... mmm bark river...

    If its $120 you aren't getting a brkt or anything thing in that range the turkeys start and $450 if you could order one and sell used not in the $575-465 range.

    Bit costly for me. I dont think I would ever get past the cradle phase of a knife that expensive.

    I like Benchamde (which was the first expensive knife I ever bought) but they have a tendancy to aggervate me. I fall in love with one of there models and eventually lose it or it just seems to walk off, and I can't buy a new one because the model is discontinued.

    By 5 years too late I mean it from a marketing/business standpoint. They've missed the peak of the recent bubble of "bushcraft knives" being trendy in the larger market where this design would have netted them stronger sales. Our little community here may appreciate it but I wouldn't expect that model to be around more than a couple of years. I could be wrong and it'll be a strong item for them but I think that in terms of maximizing the lifecycle of the product, they're essentially releasing a knife that's already in the late maturity phase of its market.
