    I see this knife sold for $5800 and change.

    It appears the buyer has it currently listed at $10K.
    He previously listed it at 17K
    It also appears the original buyer bought it solely for profit, seeing as how it was made last month.

    They have become a commodity.

    I understand that his blades are world famous but am I the only one who finds the whole bolster technique on his knives to look cheap and cheesy ?

    The brass to me looks ugly, ive checked out the SLT ones and of course they are not the same thing but they are also ugly.

    There are makers on here who make knives that are far more attractive than the Kramers.

    I'm not a fan of his Western handles but loved the Meji.

    And they have made a financial bubble, as well. Kramer actually needs all the press he is getting to support the bubble his customers have created, so that when it pops, he won't be out of a living.

    He won't be out of a living. Not with all those licensed copies being churned out.

    Specialty runs from Heckels can disappear from shelves as fast as they came.

    I gotta agree, the bolster is the one area I think Bob could improve on. Other makers do a better job.

    I saw a new one listed yesterday for Buy It Now $12,000.... I think I'd rather have a Hayabusa motorbike....or a vacation to a tropical island for my whole family.
