    Help! What are my Gerber MKII worth?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I have 2 Gerber MKII knives that were bought in the early 70's and never used. The blades were blued. They have leather sheaths. The serial numbers are 034092 and 031189. I have lived in Sweden for the last 30 years and have seen that they sell for quite different prices on ebay. I have not been able to determine what critera are important. Some sell for $200, 500 and even 1000. I am planning on taking them to the States this summer to sell.

    Is ebay the best alternative?

    Are there regulations I need to be aware of while moving in Illinois and Wisconsin while having these knives in my suitcase?

    I would appreciate any help or suggestions.

    Craig

    here is a place to look;

    these are knives sold on http://cuttingedge.com in a dutch auction style sale, ie, the price starts high and moves lower until sold.

    this should take you to page 18 of the A-Z listing.

    I can't help you with the value of these knives, but I can tell you a bit about them. They were made in 1973 and 1974, and are made from stock removed L-6. My guess would be that for one of these knives to be selling for $1000.00 it would have to have been made in 1966, the first year of production. That year there were only 8 made.

    Each State has its own laws with regards to the legality of knives. In some States it is illegal to own/carry a knife with a double edge. Make sure of the laws in the States you will be visiting.

    The original poster hasn't visited Bladeforums for eight months. I doubt you will get an answer.

    hak,

    You might post in the exchange your desire to buy. You might have some luck there.
