Utility or Collectible knives

In my opinión what makes a collector grade knife is that beyond its functionality it must be constructed using the utmost exactness in fit and finish. While Premium and exotic materials is valuable, the design, fit and finish are paramount in establishing a knife of collector grade and quality.
The blade must have the same utility, properly tempered and sharpened but exceeding utilitarian levels in fit, finish and appearance.
