    Wonder how much the Warenski King Tutankhamen dagger would bring?

    And even more what's the value on the original?

    No one has any idea whatsoever.....to either question....thing about the Tut's though, is they are "just" gold and enamel.

    Sorry, I don't mean to yell at you, but that particular piece caused a lot of uproar back in the day....and mention of it is like pulling a scab that is almost healed off.

    These days, knives that bring between $50,000-$100,000, while not exactly common, are not rare. An antique from the Littman collection just brought $80,000, Scagel knives frequently sell in the over $50,000 category, certain Loveless knives, the same, H.H. Frank knives have been known to sell in the $50,000 category, certainly a number of Buster Warenski knives, the afformentioned Walker knives....and we are not even talking the primo San Francisco knives, or Japanese katana, that readily fetch $200,000 and up.
