^^^ the $3.6k that they're asking for the used one is right along the border of where I would just make the damn thing myself.
You could probably spec out every single individual piece to be manufactured to ridiculous tolerances, source every screw, bolt, pin and pivot from the very best manufacturers available, and pay for the most high end laboratory differential heat treatment for that kind of money.

I'm just impressed with the one piece handle. Wow.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
