Long term cost of ownership on a high quality folding knife
#1
2001, I had to go do an inspection on a satellite unit in San Diego.  I felt naked as I only had a Swiss Army knife in my pocket.  I went to a knife shop in La Jolla afterhours and saw a folding, liner lock, knife, that I bought on an impulse.  It was a Microtech/Lightfoot collaboration.  The LCC.  A custom quality knife at an expensive production price, $240.00.  If, you divide the cost of ownership over 18 years, it comes out to $13.33 a year.[Image: zCqzF0B.jpg]

Good quality is worth paying for.

STICH, that knife could be a duel action. while in the closed position, push the top scale towards the back and see if it opens.

Quality never goes out of style or season.  A quality knife unless lost, stolen or just viciously abused, will last a lifetime.  And a quality knife will often take a lot abuse before it goes down the third time.
