Expensive VS budget knives
Expensive VS budget knives is the question many knife buyers ask themselves. There are plenty of factors to consider when weighing the options of Expensive VS budget knives. Many of these factors are driven purely by your opinion. So here’s a small list of some of the situations and factors to consider in the Expensive VS budget knives debate.
first let’s get the obvious reason out of the way. You want to buy a cheap knife to save money because you’re hurting for cash right now. This is probably the strongest argument on the budget side of this debate. If you’re hurting for cash then budget knives are just about the only way to go. Unless you think it’s justifiable to go into debt for a knife.
Buy it and forget it:
With expensive knives you don’t have to worry about replacing it for a very long time. Just buy it carry it with you and use it when it’s needed. I’ll last you for a very long time with or without regular maintenance. Whereas budget knives are more prone to early failure and wear down much faster. So you need to keep an eye out for that and buy a replacement when the wear gets critical.
I’m going to sound like i’m preaching here, but with the word the way it is in this day and age quality isn’t the main concern for most people. So finding a high quality knife isn’t just expensive, it’s difficult. If you’re in a hurry and don’t have access to the internet finding a high quality folding knife will be quite the challenge. Even if you’re the type of person that likes to buy things up front in a brick and mortar store you might also encounter troubles finding a store that stocks such high quality blades.
If you buy budget knives but you can afford expensive knives then you have the opportunity to stash multiple budget knives around. One in your vehicle’s glove box another in your bag and the last stashed in the house or apartment somewhere for when your current knife wears
if you’re carrying around a folding knife in places where that sort of thing is frowned upon and you get caught. Best case scenario you need to go put it in your vehicle and get a stern talking to by a security guard or police officer. worst case scenario it gets confiscated you get a fine and are asked to leave. some places have it worse than this in reality. So if you’re planning or not planning to be in places where carrying a folding knife isn’t exactly kosher you just happen to check the rules before entering. click here for more info on this subject.
Then a budget knife is for you. Because if it gets confiscated or you lose it you’re out 30$ to 50$ not bad when you consider the expensive knife side of this argument starts at 80$ and ends at around 200$ any higher than that and it’s just too expensive for my taste.
There are plenty more reasons and scenarios that apply to this subject however. These few examples give a good idea on what to consider. don’t be ashamed to buy cheap. In the end they’re knives they all do the same job only difference is some knives do the job better for the given application and can do the job longer without needing to be maintained. So think about this carefully before making a decision. if you have any questions about this subject or any other knife related inquiries.
