I think I understand what you're saying. However, I drive a Chevy cruze, carry an M&P Shield and wear a Fossil. I carry a Kershaw Blur made with s30v steel. None of the aforementioned could be classified as "premium," but nor could they be called "cheap."The contractor George thought so. I don't drive a Yugo, I don't carry a Jennings and I don't wear a Timex. I don't carry a knife made of inferior steel either.Nice, but that is more than 3x over the $50 mark. Not saying it isn't worth every penny, I'm sure it is.
My point for this post was simply to have a little fun. I found it funny that my friend doesn't want to spend more than $400 for his carry gun, but would spend almost as much on an EDC knife.
I've never been one to tell others what to do with their hard earned money. God bless you if you have the means and the desire for the finer things in life.
