    Weber set the gold standard of quality+value in the 80s and 90s. It's the reason there are so many enthusiasts of the brand.

    People who buy based on brand reputation may not notice any slight decrease in quality. So they can still get their high volume sales margins. They probably in future will still push to see how low they can go without hurting sales.

    That doesn't sit well with many people on this board. Why not offer something catering to both markets?

    That's me too. I always have a knife in my pocket. If I'm on a bike ride I'll leave my money, wallet, and keys at home, but I always take my knife. My first more expensive knife was a Benchmade and I've largely stuck with that brand. I love the assisted opening knives. I do have one Spyderco that's on my key ring. It's about a half inch long. It's handy for opening packages.
