It seems like these days a knife is either extremely high end or it's called a budget knife. I've even seen someone call a Delica or a Griptilian a budget knife. Soon S30V will be called a budget steel. It's easy to be so concerned with what is optimal that we fail to enjoy what is good enough. I know it's just a word but that term annoys me, it's very overused and often used in what seems like a derogatory manner. A $20-30 Kershaw or CRKT can be considered budget for sure, but once you hit $50 or so you are getting into decent mid range knives. There are even times when I would consider a cheaper knife mid range, like in the case of the RAT in D2. Where does your definition of midrange begin and end? Is mid range even a thing?
