    It would probably be a custom leuku and puukko from a Finnish maker. But as you said, I can't justify it.

    Oh no.... I started off as $100 max on a knife which transferred into $300 max. Next phase was $500 to $700 max and now its just well guess anything goes hahahaha. Welcome to world of knife addiction, no cure nor do we want one

    Probably the most "wish knife" of my wish knives is a replica F-S fighting knife, or a Fairbairn Cobra, from Macdonald arms.

    £250-300+ is a lot of money to drop on a knife for me.
    I might be able to justify it on a knife I was using regularly.
    I might even be able to justify it on something I only used occasionally, but really needed performance when I did use it.
    But I absolutely can't justify that kind of money for something that would purely be a curio.

    I honestly don't have a wish knife at the moment. I have 60-80 knives I have accumulated over the years . I actually use a SAK walker
    Opinel #6
    Mora Kansbol and Eldris
    Becker BK-10 BK-11 BK-16
    A.G. Russell Woods walker
    I really can't think of any other knife I want right now

    Mine would be a knife that transformed to whatever my current desire was. That would save A LOT of time and money.

    Medford Praetorian Ti all black. Customized is around $1,300.00 too much for my blood at the moment.

    For many years I have finally realized a wish knife of mine as a modification. A Popular-X
