    Ebay auction #180232954153. Is this guy out to lunch, or is this knife really as special as he claims? It really is a pretty knife, but I've seen other blue handled knives much cheaper, although not with the Schrade shield. Auction 280215873816 didn't even sell at $69.95, and auction has no bids on it yet. Not to mention he is asking $17.00 for shipping and handling (it actually says $10 in the item description).

    Definitely out to lunch, I've seen a number of those out there, although not with the magic price increasing zeroes:D. Be careful with mentioning active auctions on the forums Dave, the mods get a might peeved.

    Just for informational purposes, the regular jigged blue bone knives were apparently for an as yet unknown SFO (there has been speculation that it was for Lowes, but there is no proof as far as I know). The rope jigged blue bone knives were for a 100th anniversary cigar box run that never got off the ground. The only actual cigar box I've seen for this run was in the add.

    grey menace,

    Just out of curiosity, were any of your knives serialized on the bolster??

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the tip on the active auctions. I will keep that in mind. Mods, sorry if I erred!

    As Eric said, the blue rope cut bone knives were destined to be anniversary issues. I have the large stockman. Like most I've seen, it never got the "Empire" shield and blade etch (Called "Cattleman's shield" in the flyer). The regular blue jigged bone knives are still a source of speculation. Possibly intended for European sales. I've never seen a reliable reference to their being prepared for Lowes.

    Did Lowe's sell knives? I never thought to look for them there.

    Both Lowes and Home Depot. The orange firebird Lightweights were for Home Depot.

    Grey Menace, that's quite a collection you have there! I think I spotted about fifty that you outbid me on:grumpy::D:D. What I meant in the above post was that I hadn't seen any of the actual boxes, but I do have a few of the knives. Only one, the stockman, is completed with etch, although it's hard to see in scans (my wife has the camera at work:rolleyes:). None are serialized, darned lucky of you to find those!:thumbup: I haven't seen the hunter either, although I have a feeling there are at least a few lurking around out there,for sure one photo sample. Here's a scan of the knives, as well as a couple of the other blue bone mystery knives:

    Nice one, Rusty. I'm no expert, but I think you got one of the real deals there. And for a great price, too.
