Butterpat: $295.00

Finex: $175.00

Smithey #8 Chef Skillet: $100

I didn't see a plain # 8 skillet for Smithey but still this should give a decent idea on pricing. Lodge is less than any of them but at the expense of a milled cooking surface.

While I know a rough surface will cook just the same as a smooth one, I prefer milled surfaces and would be willing to pay more for one. I think Either Stargazer or Field Co give the most value per dollar spent followed by Lodge then Smithey.
Smithey's #8 is an 8 inch skillet (#5). Their #10 is a 10 inch skillet (#8) at $160. Smithey is deceiving with their sizes.
Also Borough Furnace has a 10.5" at $300 and a 9" at $280.
