My buddy makes custom knives, they're no where near $4300 !!!! CultroTech Knives: https://www.knifecenter.com/brand/938/CultroTech-Knives Personally I would never spend more than $1000 on a custom knife (and my highest so far is under $400). I do have a $600 custom but that was a gift from the maker. I don't foresee that I get any more custom knives unless I hit the lottery.
