    I hope this topic is acceptable. Is there a way to find out what a knife was sold for when they first came out? I've tried Google and had some luck but It took along time to find the information.

    Thank You

    I have wondered this too. And it bothers me when people take out the price after their item is sold in the exchange. I want to see what it sold for so I can make an informed decision! I don't understand the reasoning behind hiding the price after it has sold.

    This horse has long been dead after being beaten, shot, stabbed, burned, and shot out of a cannon twice. The answer to your questions can be found with a little searching on your part. As for finding the original prices on what a knife was solf for when it was released, the best thing to do is ask on the forums or go directly to the manufacturer's website and look at what percentqge off MSRP a current knife goes for.

    But I don't wanna search, I wanna complain! Also wouldn't I have to pay for a gold membership if I wanted to ask about resale prices? I did read some of the rules!

    This is a great idea I hadn't thought of before.

    Many people collect/store/keep (?) old knife catalogues.

    If you don't pester them too frequently, the folks in Bernard Levine's subforum may be willing to assist.

    Why not just ask the seller?!? I am sure most people will be just fine with telling you.
