There are some real talented folks making knives and some stupid money being spent on them.
I bought a George Herron knife a few years ago off a guy that was on hard times and needing cash. Knowing very little about knives the guy told me it was worth a lot of money and that he'd be back for it when he got ahead. Fast forward a few years and I'm still sitting on the knife and I havent seen the original owner in years. I posted it on a knife maker/collector forum and had offers in excess of $2,000 for it within an hour.
I ended up keeping the knife but was also introduced to Herron's protege named Wayne Hendrix and got several knives from him that I use regularly while hunting. A good custom knife blows most of the production knives out of the water. Unbelievably sharp and very durable...
