Default Who knows?

Why is the gerber profile folder 25$ while the gerber "myth" folder is almost 50$??
I see no real difference, im just curious, why the extreme price difference?

Do not know- but were they both made in the same place? From the same materials?

It says the myth has high carbon steel while the profile is titantium coated, it does not say whether or not the profile is made from "high" carbon steel. The blades look very similar.
I have the profile, its a great knife for 20$.

I looked on the Gerber site. It does not list the steel used in either blade; on the myth it does say "high carbon stainless steel", which means nothing and is even kinda contradictory.

My thoughts are to avoid modern Gerbers at all cost. The one's from the 80's are good knives, but their modern stuff not high quality.
