Default Re: Lodge acquiring Finex

Interesting news.

It makes a lot of sense to me if Lodge wants to enter the high end (expensive premium CI) cast iron market. I doubt anyone would pay $100 for a Lodge skillet due to the fact they are in every Walmart and similar discount place in addition to most camping and sporting goods retailers.

Finex and similar brands are a bit like the Swedish axe manufacturers. Do I want a ~$30 hardware store axe with rough finishing and a cheap painted / varnished handle or, a hand-forged work of art with a premium Hickory handle finishing properly (i.e. not painted or varnished)?
