I am curious, as someone who sometimes makes knives, what makes that particular knife work for you? What makes it special? What is it's "it" factor? Literally I am just trying to understand what things people look for in a knife.I would have a hard time with the price as well.
Its design is legit, as Rapier was known as a top killer with both firearms and knives, so it's been tested in actual hand-to-hand...so there's the tears and virgin thing...
I don't think there's a THE BEST knife, just like gear...you'll have to find a design that works in harmony with how you operate.
I'm right handed...carry the pistol on the right side and the Amtac blade on the left side in front, like a aiwb holster, but at a strong angle that puts the handle towards the center line. I still carry a folder as well, but that's for the everyday use thing...opening mail, boxes etc.
I typically carry automatic folders that lean more towards scalpel sharp than longevity of cutting edge. (The sharpening angle I tend to use is rather steep, and self aware that it definitely impedes how long a blade will stay sharp.) Post moving, I may switch to a belt knife. Largely because I could carry something I made. But I am curious what gives people the it factor for a particular knife.
