SAKs at Tractor Supply

Just a heads up; Tractor Supply is now carrying Recruits for $15. Saw a few of them in the metal bins beside the checkouts today. Almost bought one myself, but I had other purchases to make this month. I wish they'd expand it, get rid of that Taylor Schrade/Smith and Wesson garbage in the knife case, and replace that side of it with SAKs. I feel the basic selection most sporting goods stores have (i.e. Trekker, Classic, Fieldmaster, Recruit, Spartan, Climber, Super Tinker, etc.) would be enough.
Honestly, I'm pretty impressed. First decent new knife they've introduced. Tractor Supply's knife selection has been getting pretty bad. They've clearanced out most of their Cases, Bucks, and the one time they carried a few Bear and Sons models. Now, most of their stuff is Taylor or Acme/Camillus; and imported lines of Gerber, Utica, and SOG. I mean, the US-1 is about $15, so I'm surprised they haven't sold it; or even the LST Magnums; also about that price--or even the Case Mini Blackhorn, a staple of department store carded knives for years.
