I know how you feel. I think Spyderco is pricing their knives as fairly as possible. I said "think" because of course I have no idea. My experience with the Spyderco team is just this forum and the knives I've bought and a couple of times with customer service. So far I am very happy Spyderco. They seem to be motivated to provide as many knife selections for cutting needs as well as price needs of the customers. So, when I see a knife I really want but it is more than I can or am willing to pay for it I just pretend it doesn't exist. I decided to buy better quality knives a few years ago. I got on the computer and was shocked by the prices. I really had no idea. I would rather Spyderco make every knife they can no matter how much they need to charge for it. If I can't afford it I know someone else can. Who knows, I may be able to get one someday. Once in a while I think most of us luck into some money for one reason or another. Some people put it in savings like it never happened. Not me. Well some, but I spoil myself some also and so does my wife.
