Default Are you ready for this price

Check out the Abel Nippers, but before you get your heart pumping about ordering a set you better be ready for the paddles, (AED Defibrillator) so you can restart your heart.

The whole concept just made me laugh out loud. Not quite rolling on the floor, but definately laughing out loud. And Abel will probably laugh all the way to the bank because some people have more money than....uh, well, they have more money than I do. There, that was polite.
Still chuckling,

LOL, I don't think even if your name is Lefty or Steve or whoever they'll be many of these floating around free. Probably as many as those almost-200 dollar pliers. what a hoot.
The grinch,

Hmmmm....I bought a pair of Orvis ceramic nippers around 2004-2005. They worked well for a couple years, but then the ceramic began to crumble. I mailed them back to Orvis, and they refunded my money. I then invested in a $.99 pair of nippers at the local Orvis dealer, and they've been going steady for almost as long as the ceramic nippers lasted. I did buy a $14 Orvis zinger to hang them on, but I kept the receipt.

YIKES!!!! They sure are proud of their stuff. I could see the price for the vise but these prices on the pliers, nippers and even pocket knife are plain rediculous. The money clip is the worst I think $185 for a painted money clip.
