Not just no, HELL NO!!!!!! Not if I was the richest man in the world.
I own several knives. With that kind of money I can by weapons that reach out and touch someone, cut trees down and make apple sauce. But, to each his own.

$10k? That's all?

Those custom Bob Kramer kitchen knives are like $20k, IIRC

Well, it does have the words "tactical" and "combat" in the title. That alone makes it worth at least $9K.

Perhaps a knife inlaid with gold and encrusted with jewels might be worth $10K but otherwise...? I don't think so.

+1

I have better and more practical things to spend $10K with.

To each their own.

Even if I had the disposable $, I wouldn't be interested.

Lol...The knife didnt cost $10k...It isnt cheap though. More like $2k-$4k...Who knows, maybe even cheaper considering its for a Navy SEAL.
Did any of you even read what its made of or what is in the sheath? I know its not worth $4k, but a good knife that your going to use in battle, shouldnt be cheap, unless your using a machete in Africa or something;)

You guys think this knife is expensive? Coming from the same people that pay over $3k for plastic rifles???;):p


Size: Length Overall: 13.75" (34.9 cm), Blade Length: 8.2" (20.8 cm),

Thickness: .244" (6.2 cm)

Weight: Knife: 1 lb., 5.0 oz., Sheath (with all accessories): 1 lb., 13 oz.

Blade: Bead blasted ATS-34 high molybdenum martensitic stainless tool steel, hardened and tempered to HRC58

Bolsters/Fittings: Bead-blasted 304 austenitic high nickel, high chromium stainless steel

Handle: Black canvas reinforced Micarta phenolic

Sheath: Kydex, Aluminum, Nickel Plated Steel, all Stainless Steel Locking Components

Accessories: Polypropylene and Nylon belt loop extender with Firesteel/Magnesium fire starter, Fine DMT diamond abrasive pad sharpener, Maglite XL200 flashlight in HULA assembly, all stainless steel fittings and corrosion resistant high strength aluminum alloy.

Commemorative: Machine-engraved black lacquered brass flashplate, and machine-engraved stainless steel bolsters.

Knife: Custom made for a Navy SEAL Team member, this is as serious as a knife gets. The knife pattern is my Horus design, named for a very ancient mythological god of war and hunting, which is exactly what our Navy SEAL Team members do. The blade is deeply and beautifully ground ATS-34 high molybdenum stainless tool steel, a high "chrome-moly" tool steel with a proven record of high wear resistance coupled with high toughness (resistance to deformation and breakage), as well as high heat resistance. ATS-34 for the steel choice allows a very thin blade grind profile, producing an extremely tough and sharp cutting edge with high wear resistance. This steel will not change temper unless exposed to over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, so this is a very heat-resistant blade indeed. The point also benefits from this steel choice, as it can be maintained very thin and sharp, allowing very low angles for piercing and point penetration, without sacrificing toughness. The aggressive point has a two-thirds blade length top swage for the correct geometry to apply extreme peircing pressure at the point without sacrificing blade strength. I hollow ground the blade deeply and with perfect symmetry, and the large belly of the blade provides plenty of sweeping, razor-keen double-bevel cutting edge. The knife has 2.5" of my tough "hammerhead" rip tooth serrations in the recurve area for smooth and reliable cutting of a variety of materials without snagging. I've left enough spine in the blade to fully support the powerful blade, and no filework leaves the spine clean and smooth without the possibility to trap and hold debris. The curvature of the knife is a piece of sculptural art, but art is not all that lives in the graceful lines. The curves all have purpose too, from the thumb rise to aid in knife grip and engage the sheath locking mechanism to the large handle quillons that positively lock the handle into the hand comfortably with a good belly and nice heel drop for the hand. The knife is bolstered with zero-care high nickel, high chromium 304 stainless steel alloy bolsters, permanently attached with zero clearance peened pins. This is the same steel used to make stainless steel nuts, bolts and fasteners and is extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant. They are bead-blasted and the front bolsters hold custom high resolution, deep machine-engravings of the frog skeleton that is a special accent characteristic of the Navy's finest warriors. The rear bolster has a substantial 5/16" chamfered lanyard hole, and the dovetailed bolsters bed a pair of tough, waterproof, and durable canvas reinforced Micarta phenolic handle scales secured with ten 304 stainless steel through-tang pins. The knife feels comfortable and highly effective in both forward and reverse grip, with the balance point at the point of the front bolster, and the center of percussion at the belly of the blade.

Sheath: The sheath for this beauty had is one of my positively locking models, and is built of double thickness kydex over a 5052H32 high strength corrosion-resistant aluminum welt frame. The locking components are all stainless steel, including the spring, tang and hardware for longevity and corrosion resistance. The sheath is secured with all bead blasted double slotted stainless steel Chicago screws, and has two sets of reversible corrosion-resistant aluminum 1.75" belt loops. The die-formed high strength, corrosion resistant aluminum loops can be positioned in three different positions along the welt-frame, and on either side of the sheath for the widest variety of wear options. The action of the sheath is smooth and clean, locking solidly.
Horizontal Belt Loop Plate: Since, with the locking sheath, the sheath can be worn in any position, even upside down, I included a horizontal belt loop plate. This accommodates wear horizontally and can be bolted to either side of the sheath for a reversible option. It is made of die-formed and riveted 5052H32 high strength corrosion resistant aluminum alloy, bead blasted for glare reduction.

Belt Loop Extender: I included one of my Ultimate belt loop extenders, which can be used to lower the knife to a more traditional position if the knife is worn on the belt. The polypropylene accessory is waterproof, durable, and extremely stout. The extension is mounted with 304 stainless steel straps and stainless steel machine screws attached to the existing stainless steel Chicago screws, and the assembly is stiffened by multiple zigzag nylon stitching to prevent the extension from folding, bending, or collapsing when the knife is extracted from the sheath. The belt loop accommodates up to a 2.5 inch wide belt, and has a top placement shock cord with stainless steel snap retention to prevent the knife handle from flopping around during active movements. At the lower back of the extension I've included a custom fit pocket for a DMT (Diamond Machining Technology) Mini-Sharp diamond-nickel abrasive hone, to bring up the cutting edge in the field with ease, even on this high-alloy wear-resistant blade. The pocket for this tool is situated at the sheath back and against the body, so the sharpener can not be removed unless the sheath is off the body. I also added a specially modified critical survival component to this accessory: the Firesteel/Magnesium block with custom fittings. These blocks are waterproof and durable, with soft magnesium that can be easily shaved off with the knife blade, and a Firesteel striker to ignite the magnesium shavings when placed into tinder to start a fire. A unique addition to this block is the stainless steel rod guard. This minimizes the possibility of the Firesteel contacting any other metals and causing accidental sparks and ignition when worn or removed, guards the knife tip (or swage) when the blade is dragged over the Firesteel, helps concentrate and guide the spark direction, and offers a variety of mounting options on any gear or pouch, besides on the sheath extender's industrial strength Velcro straps. Being made of all 304 stainless steel hardware, fittings and fasteners, it will not corrode or rust.

HULA and Maglite XL200: Included in this professional assembly is my latest offering for field use, the HULA. The Holder, Universal, Lamp, Articulating (HULA), is my answer to a call for not just a backup lamp that I've provided on previous Ultimate Extender packages, but an actual main or key professional grade lamp and mount assembly. The lamp I included is the Maglite XL200, perhaps the most sophisticated programmable flashlight made today, with five modes of operation and infinite power settings. The lamp is a powerhouse of options and longevity, with ultra bright LED technology that is dependable and tough. The only thing the lamp needed was a reliable, adjustable, dependable and corrosion proof way to carry it on the sheath, so I designed the HULA. This special holder will hold any flashlight that is 1" by 4.75" and also accommodates the Maglite XL100 flashlight that has different options. The holder lamp frame is made of welded 5052H32 high strength corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, for the highest durability and corrosion resistance combined with low weight. The lamp is held in custom made socket with a retaining cap that is maintained in a T-slot lock by the elastic tension of replaceable shock cord straps. The T-slot lock can be negotiated even in the dark due to it's simple and clever design and construction. The lamp can be turned on and off within the holder, and can even have selected modes while still in the control of the holder. One of the best features of this assembly is a ball joint and pinch mechanism. This is a very old mechanism, dating back to 200BC, where a ball sits in a dedicated socket, and is held there by the tension of a screw. The ball joint frame, ball, tangs, screw and mounting hardware are all welded 304 high nickel, high chromium stainless steel which is bead blasted for glare reduction. This is a very tough assembly that will probably outlast the knife owner. What it offers is an articulating adjustment, aiming and positioning of the lamp, while still mounted on the knife sheath, wherever the knife sheath is mounted on the body. In the traditional belt line position (shown in the photos below), the lamp can be aimed at the ground in front of the wearer (great for movement), or aimed at any object or person in front of the wearer, while freeing the hands for a weapon, tool, or carry. I'm certain that this new development will be highly popular with search and rescue and disaster response teams. Since the lamp can be dimmed infinitely, the setting can allow soft light for subdued movement, and various settings on the lamp can aid in emergencies to signal and draw attention, depending on the program selected. The lamp can even be program-locked to prevent unwanted turning on, even if the switch is operated. If the wearer needs the light in his hand, he simply pulls up on the T-slot locking cap, pulls the lamp from the socket, and replaces the cap so it won't bounce around. I've done my research, and created simply the finest flashlight accessory made in the world today, custom made to mount to my locking sheaths, the best locking sheaths made in the world today. One more important point: the bolt pattern and arrangement allows the HULA to be bolted to twelve positions along the welts of the sheath. Talk about flexibility! There are much more to these accessories; learn about these critical accessories on a special page on my site at this link. Mounting, care, and use instructions are posted there.

Additional Engraved Flash plates: I've included an increased density graphic black brass flashplate and red brass box or stand commemorative flashplate to honor our SEAL Team member after his service and the retirement of the knife. That way, he'll have several and can keep one pristine for his mantle.
I am humbly honored that one of our finest will be carrying this knife into the most serious business that there is. God bless our military members and our allies who protect our freedoms and lives of all those we love.

Uhhh that blade design is probably one of the most common designs in the world and has been used for thousands of years...I guess if it had a stag handle and a shiny straight blade with a number "3" on it, it would be better?

Yeah, you can spend less but your not going to get a better knife.

I love to watch people talk online about how expensive some custom made knives are (coming from people who spend tons of cash on guns) but yet none of you could possibly come close to making a knife of this caliber.

And if any of you can make knives this good, Ill be willing to PAY...

So step on up and put your skillz where your mouth is...Otherwise, continue to purchase your blades at Wal-Mart and Auto Zone;)

My job is as serious as any. As such, I am a fan of well made weapons of all shapes, sizes, and types. That is a beautifully made weapon. Kudos to the artist. Having said that, however, I would never spend that much on a knife. It is obviously a display piece for a retirement...that's cool if 20 guys pitch in $500 each for a teammate. $10K in a roomful of guys with $75K reup bonuses is not a big deal.

I saw a Benchmade knife in honor of fallen SEAL Marc Lee (BUD/S 251). His name and a Trident is laser engraved on the blade...$270. Pretty cool I guess.

This is what I carried. Scared the **** out of the locals.

I have never paid more than $50 for a knife. All of them worked, were sharp, and cut everything I used them on. If they got dull or loose I tossed them and got another. This includes years of .mil and LE work. If someone can market a 10K knife and sell it i say God bless them and free market capitalism. But no one can say with a straight face that a common Gerber or Cold Steel blade is insufficient for 99% of applications where a knife is needed.

Topps, Spyderco, Benchmade and Cold Steel all make knives that are so overbuilt for anything we will ever need. Those sort of custom made knives as listed above are nothing more than a status symbol. JUst like a guy who buys a Noveske to shoot paper targets at a local range. A Del Ton will work equally well and be all that he ever would need at way less money.

I just paid $12 for a Smith and Wesson "Extreme Ops" folder from Big 5 that was made just as good as any of the brands you listed. So I guess the same thing that is being said about the OP can be said about those brands as well?

I do agree with you that the blade in the OP is for those same exact type of people who have money to burn. I guess when you have money burning a hole in your pocket you have to spend it on something. You only live once, might as well live happy. But when the choice comes down between food for the kids and a knife, the choices become difficult;)

Jay Fisher makes them. I dont think they are $10k but they are at least a couple thousand. The holes are to cut down on weight and make the knife light in your hand while cutting food all day.
