    I believe that Camillus called their yellow handled knives YellowJackets. They have never appealed to me but I know that there are a lot of collectors that are buying them up to complete their sets. How many collectors of the yellow handled knives do we have visiting the forum?

    I finished the set sometime late last year. Some of them were rather hard to find, but the hunt is part of the fun.

    I've had a few, but sold them. They are very nice. The correct spelling is Yello-Jaket (not sure where that came from) so they can be found spelled a lot of different ways, if you are hunting for them. I was hunting for your collection, but couldn't find the post. Thanks Mountainwind.

    That is a beautiful set. How long did it take you to get it together?

    It took about a year (I think). I need to post all of my completed sets, but my camera ability, leaves a little to be desired.

    I still need the 709Y to complete my set. I had one ready to bid on but my puter locked up and I was unable to bid on it. It went for $31. After I stopped crying, I started looking again.

    I'm looking at a couple of them right now, but there seems to be a lot of activity on everyones favorite auction site. It looks like they'll go pretty high. Personally, I look at the knives that draw less attention and try not to overbid. The Yello-Jaket is in demand. It will take me a lot longer than a year to get the whole collection together.

    I don't see any 709Y's. If you see one please email me with the number.

    A 718 Stockman nib just went for 51.00 + 5.00 shipping. The few I have will not have much company soon at those prices. I did get the canoe at the starting price, though.

    I guess the price depends on if the moon is full or not. The same knife can have a huge price difference at times. I've saw other knives go for a third to half more, than what a buy it now auction was going for.
    I will keep watch for any good buys for you guys.

    Thanks MW. The other day a double lockback went for over $100. That left me out even with the windfall rebate the gov is sending us. You know I'll keep looking.

    My mistake, the double lockback still has 1 day left on the "block."

    Since this thread started, the prices on ebay seem to have escalated. It also appears as if more are being offered at auction. They definitely have a bigger fan base than originally thought. Maybe the pictures showed how nice a bunch of them look together.

    I have notice that if prices go up for certain models more of them seem to come out of the woodwork.
