    I don't mean to perpetuate this thread, but I agree with this statement 100%. Which means I'm part of the problem (aside from having too much money ). I'm not a collector but wanted to see what the hype was all about. I overpaid for my Kato standard and WH because I knew I had little to no chance in finding others for sale. That's the problem - collector's aside, people like me that want to get our hands on these knives and USE THEM need to pay to play otherwise we'll be waiting (maybe) forever to find them at reasonable prices. Is it possible to find them - sure - but you gotta be extremely lucky with timing. It's a cycle that will never end as long as there are people willing to pay up for whatever reason. It will only end when demand has fallen to a level where nobody cares about them because there are other "IT" knives that have higher demand. *SHRUG*

    I'm sure pretty much anything on this subject has already been said 10 times...

    Those like me have to pay the inflated prices or we will never be able to experience some of these rare knives. When something is rare and in demand you pay a premium for it. It's that way for any material item and knives are no exception. That's just how the world works.
