    Pretty pricey for a knife like that though!

    It’s very new. You weren’t behind the curve or asleep at the switch.

    For that kind of $$ it better be able to cut up my food and mix a Martini! IMHO, its a very basic knife made with decent materials, but in no way justifies the cost.

    Looks like USGI mess kit knife in D2 yeah. I like the company and their products, especially spork but in this case no thanks. Not for me.

    Especially since I've seen real usgi mess kit knives in catalogs recently for a fraction of that price!

    The concept is super frigging cool though. You have to hand it to a canteen company to first re-design a piece of pretty good canteen kit and take it to the next level. Then they were like "hey guys, whats next" and they look at the GI mess kit and grab the knife. "This". I can appreciate they innovation and also their ability to keep to the same theme. Its like a Kephart Izula!

    I always thought the mess kit knife was overpriced anyhow. Unless you just have to have it, swap in a Mora Companion or 510 and roll on with a great, cheap knife.

    I like the design, I think it has merit there. Not much of a D2 fan but it does have a good reputation and history. The link was not working so no comment on pricing. ;)

    They have a smaller version also. I'm not sure how much that costs.

    I thought it might be steep for my taste. I don't own a canteen or cup from them either but...things like this have intrinsic value IMHO. If "you" like it, use it, or just enjoy owning it then it's cost is immaterial. Right?

    RIGHT ON.
    Not that I'm interested in this knife, but that's exactly how I feel about pricing. My childish enjoyment is worth more than dollars can quantify.
