Thread: Will this make me poor again?

    Welcome Kev!! Not married, but I always push the investment angle with my family. Letting them know that, not only will they not lose their value like other knives, but if you get the right one, it can actually go up in price. Helps when you prepare a nice 3 or 4 course meal. Keeps them from saying anything while they're stuffing food in their mouths.

    They usually don't disagree, but then again, I don't tell them exactly what I paid either.

    Great thinking, and you can use this logic, not just on others, but also on yourself if you ever feel guilty about buying.

    However, trying to chose knives whose value might increase will now only add to the complexities of deciding what to purchase. Thanks man....

    Incidentally, what would be an example of a knife whose value might increase after purchase? Maybe one by a renown individual maker who's getting on a bit - before their retirement?

    I'm not sure if signed Kejiro Doi blades are (or will be) going up in value that much, but I still want one.
