What I've found that works without all that messin' around is to do a quote post, copy and paste the unposted contents of that into the new location and remove the
so it shows up like a regular post. Now back out of where you were quoting the post so that disappears. Hope that makes sense

Now you tell me! :lol:

I have a Buck Creek congressman bobcat knife on the badge it has the deer antlers and says solingen. Does any one have any idea what it might be worth or what year it was made?

Welcome to AAPK. Glad to have you aboard.

I suggest you start a new thread here ---► viewforum.php?f=4 and ask your question there so it gets more exposure. AAPK is not an online appraisal service but occasionally there are folks who may be willing to opine on the value of a particular knife. Searching eBay's closed and sold auctions is the commonly suggested method of ascertaining the current value of individual knives. Good luck.

Edit: The Tips & Tricks forum located here ---► viewforum.php?f=98 is a good place to learn how to navigate AAPK and get things done on the forum.

I am new here to your AAPK Forum. I am hardly new to pocket knives though, because of the addiction to pocket knives for maybe 57 of my 66 years.

However, I am new to learning the terms and nomenclature of pocket knives. I am keen to study the histories and origins and all about the people who made them.

I can remember the glass side tables in what you blokes call the dime stores. I vividly recall the absolute cornucopia of pocket knives displayed there and trying to get my mum to stop at a table so I could look at the treasures displayed. Now, I have about a 100 or so different pocket knives of one sort or another, purchased new and second hand or received as gifts.

Reading various posts, so far, I reckon I have found "home" as far as pocket knives go. Your Forum appears to me as a very natural friendly and non-pretentious environment.No inane comments about what EDC I am carrying or descriptions of "tactical" anything.

I just love it, It is all fair dinkum stuff. Thumbs up boys I am glad I joined. You are very friendly and helpful people.

I just had a prostate surgery a week ago, so I and am looking at a therapy of pocket knife repair as a hobby to keep me out of strife.I have got all the relatives looking for damaged or non functional traditional pocket knives for cheap in the flea markets.

I am glad to find you blokes.

Oz, welcome to AAPK. Glad to have you aboard. "glass side tables" Is that an Aussie name for a display case?

Hi Jerry
Not an Aussie description-just mine, my way of describing the tables.

The entire top of the display table /s was divided up into shoebox-sized areas with the glass sides( think of glass louvre panels and attached by metal clips. Easy to stand next to and reach into for an adult not so much, for a small boy.

Each division was filled with the multiple samples of the many types of pocket knives that were on display.

They probably were, what was the cheap and nasty version -the mass produced - some junk if you will - of the day.

There were acetate sided knives, right through to metal sided scales, chromed or nickel sided ones and something like mother of pearl. All sizes too, right through from tiny ones to the larger models.
regards
Oz

Hello Everyone!

I'm new here. I have just came into a very large collection of Case XX Knifes "All of them were display models" left over from my family's hardware store business that existed from the 1960's to early 2000s

I've have been given the task of selling the knifes now that my grandfather passed away and the estate is being divided among the siblings.

I need information on the knifes I have so that I can list them to be sold and I'm not sure where the best place on this forum is to list pictures of the knifes that experts can tell me more information about them so that I can properly list them to be sold to collectors who will appreciate them.

I just don't want to give any potential buyers bad information.

My grandfather always told me that these Case XX knifes were special and that they were some of his favorite wares among everything that they sold at the store.

Anyhow, thanks for any information and input in advance.

I just want to be sure where I'm posting the information and pictures is the correct place on the forum seeing that I'm new here and all.
Thanks again!

Put them on Ebay one Sunday night with a start bid of 99 cent in a 7day auction. Ebay is the best guage of current market value out there . Make sure you take excellent in focus pictures of the knife up for auction. Show a close up of the tang stamp and views of the knife with blades open, front and back. Show an overhead shot of the blade well with blades open and closed. If you do all these things well, the market will tell you what the value of the knife is.
