Basser,

Looks like you have a nice start to your collection.

Jacquelynn,
I will be more than happy to lend a hand. I have been keeping selling prices from ebay since 2005. I can tell you what they have sold for in the past. Depending on how you look at it, This year has been great for Cripple Creeks. They are selling very reasonable.

soulmanticore,
Any idea what the 5-blade Stockman's might go for, today (see post #4)? I believe that these were one of the very first knives that Bob made under the Cripple Creek name.
Thanks,

I bought one last year for $296 and was happy to give it. It had the Cripple creek shield. These knives have not come up for sale alot. Back in 08 one sold for $710. That had to be a bidding war. Or a couple of people using their snipping programs and not paying attention.

Catch ya later shane

Here are my 2 Cripple Creeks, both are pre 1990. The first one is a 1986 Stag Stockman and the other is a 1989 stag mini Trapper.

pearl handled 5th ann knives? Thanks
