That`s pretty cool!
From the Boston globe
Auction history was made last month. The james D. julia auction house of Fairfield Maine set a world record in their fire arms auction grossing nearly 18 million.
One of the top sellers was a Bil Scagel Bowie style knife (only 2 known to have been made) it brought $45,425 and Scagel personal knife brought $41,300. All from the collection of Dr. James Lucie, Scgel personal physician and friend. All the 75 knives in the colection sold.
I still plan to use my knives but wil give them tender loving care...
yeah that is some serious coin.
Wow. I paid about that for my first new Corvette. Hard to imagine a knife being worth that, but I am sure there is a reason for the draw.

I think that is one of the most famous knife collections around. Very distinctive knives, beautiful lines and flow. Scagel was a true artist, I would love a chance to see one in person some day!
Scagel was the inspiration for Bo Randall to start making knives. You can see a resemblance in the early Randal knives.
Here is a link to the Lucie collection. Write Scagel on Search.
He made knives using materials he had around, stacked leather and whatever he could turn into a knife.
thats a lot of money for a knife!
