At the double reed instrument store I buy my products you can pay $14.95 for a folding knife with replaceable steel blades and go up to $199 for a Japanese Ando knife plus the recommended Japanese Water stone and strop to sharpen and hone. Oh and you either order a right handed or left handed knife.
Character is what you are when no one is looking.
