I used to make fun of my Sister-in-law because when she would make a big purchase she would commonly "take to bed". I always viewed this as "Buyer's remorse".

I just paid an exorbitant amount (at least for me) on a pocket knife and I'm also considering "taking to bed".

I can't wait to get it! It is a Combat Troodon with a drop point blade.

I had a similar reaction when I bought my ultratech; it’s a lot of money for a pocket knife. But now I find myself looking at other microtech sand saying, “they’re really not THAT expensive...”. Knives are an addiction.

I have an original Halo, from when they first came out. It cost me a lot back then. If it's something your into you'll spend the money. At my old job someone said can you believe so and so just spent $500 on a radio controlled car. I looked at them and said, hell, I just dropped $400 on a knife that will probably never cut anything. The look I got was priceless. Like I said if it's something your into you'll spend the money.

Wore my thumb raw in the first day. It's addicting and even though it's cheap the lightning is utilitarian and will definitely lead to an up-buy.

Well, Rolan...
Welcome to another Addiction. My name is Eric and I am a Microholic.
The Combat Troodons are great knives.

Two Ultratechs in my inventory. One is a Hellhound. Someday I will add a Troodon.
Congrats!
