Nic Cage

Drops $2k on Mammoth Ivory

Custom STEAK KNIFE!!!

1109_NIC_CAGE_KNIFE_EX_EM
Seems Nicolas Cage is finally over that whole "financial ruin" thing -- 'cause dude just dropped TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS on a steak knife in Alaska ... TMZ has learned.

Nic was chillin' in Anchorage Wednesday -- when he rolled into a bad ass custom blade shop called Northern Knives.

We're told Cage fell in love with a Don Dezarn original -- which featured MAMMOTH IVORY in the handle and a patriotic bald eagle engraved onto the 4-inch blade.

The knife is primarily used as a decorative piece, and one knife expert tells us it's common for people to wear similar blades as a holstered accessory with a "nice suit."

Knife experts tell us ... $2,000 is pretty reasonable for a knife of that caliber. But the crazy part ... Nic told people inside he plans to use his fancy shank to cut his steak!!!

Chew on that.

What are you people crapping on him for?? Celeb's drop thousands for a bottle of wine all the time, just to urinate it out an hour later. Nic's buying a cool, handcrafted knife and he's an a55 for it? Sweet jeez people.

Knife collecting is huge and there is a lot of money in it. You can buy one for 50 bucks all the way up to 50k. For the most part its a good hobbie to get into and if you dont detroy the knife it should keep its value or go up..

Hell I just bought a custom made knife for 150.00 a few months ago and already worth more than 200.00. I expect it to top out about 500 or so in two years..

I'm glad to see he is cash-flowing again.

It's his money, he can spend it on whatever he wants.

BTW, I ate two bison burgers the other day. I suppose I am now somehow responsible for the demise of the Plains Buffalo in the 1800's.

I know the guy who used to own that shop. Years ago he had a picture of OJ Simpson hanging on the wall holding a knife he purchased there back in the early 90's...it was removed on June 12th 1994. I think he still has it.

Him buying a knife for 2k is like us buying it for $30. No big deal for him. Besides, it's probably a work of art.

Of course this classless greasy ginzo would buy a piece of trash like this and think it was the ultimate of COOL.

He's a mook.

Nic did nothing wrong. It is HIS money and he is at this time working for it. He bought a Mammoth Ivory knife. So what. He did nothing illegal. It would not be in that store if it was illegal. Mammoth's have been extinct for many thousands of years. Elephant ivory is illegal because they are still around. I think what he bought was cool. I would love one myself.

After nearly being in financial ruin he goes out and spends two grand on something no one needs. You would think he learned his lesson about spending money frivolously. I guess you just can't fix "stupid"!

That is an expensive knife. I wonder where they got the ivory. It has been illegal to get ivory from elephants for at least 20 years.
