Thanks for the link; I've looked on google. The web seems to be out of them .LOL
I had another question is your Buck/Strider an ATS34 or S30V ? Also how is the Buck model diferent from the Strider; besides the price of course?

It is ats34. It is much cheaper alternative to full make Striders and much less crying/anger if you loose one. My Strider GB is build little better and has a little more solid feel to it than the Buck version. But than again I've been using both knives for a while now and have no complaints. But anyway if I didnt have the strider I still would be happy with the Buck and I do believe that there is certain amount of hype around Strider blades which keeps the price at higher level.

Yes, I'm sure Strider is a great knife but, I have to wonder if were not just paying for their new CNC machines. I'll pay the 1400.00 for a Doxa but not 400. or 500. for the Strider. Come to think of it thats a lot for a watch too.....LOL

Paying premium for premium gear has always been a great controversy all over forums. War between fans of Strider vs Spyderco vs Buck vs SAK vs whatever knife brand you like has been going on forever. Same went for flashlights as why pay $120 for Surefire or Gladius or HDS when $10 Maglight would do. And of course why not get a casio g-shock or seiko instead of omega or rolex which will do exactly the same job.

In the end I was lucky enough to have some expandable income that I was able to put into some premium gear and when some of it proved to be worth it others were just a waste of money. But in the end it is your personal choice of what to get and don't fall into the trap that more expensive is better since I learned that lesson with Kifaru packs the hard way. I just wish I had most of my cash back that I blew searching for a perfect light, knife, pack etc etc... <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> but at least it was fun.

But the thing that makes me really angry are people who won't even talk to you unless you have certain kind of gear. In order to join the special exclusive society you have to own exclusive gear otherwise you are not worth somebodys time. I guess idea that somebody maybe can't afford such gear or doesnt need it is unacceptable. And sometimes your skills are perceived as diminished becasue of the gear you own since as an expert you should have known better.
