    One will go to the grave as I asked to have one on my belt. I told them it doesn't have to be a good one, keep those for yourselves.

    Knives? What's going to happen to my massive porn collection if I die? (or what will people think?) Just kidding...

    My Dad knows the value of my knives, fishing equipment, guns, and wine/beer cellar so I know my stuff would fall in to capable hands.

    I've actually thought about this too...

    I asked my wife to:
    Bury NMFBM LE #114 with me.
    Keep any knives she fancies.
    Go to Bladeforums, buy Gold membership, and visit the Busse Sub-Forum.
    Post you're my widow, use my knife list and pix to ask for help figuring out what the INFI/SR-101 hoard is worth and sell the rest.

    To paraphrase a tagline from another site: I pray my wife doesn't sell my knives for what I told her I paid for them.

    They will be melted down and used to build my robot body.

    Deal! ;):thumbup:

    I like David Brown's idea. little paper price tags with string are pretty cheap in bulk, and won't harm the knife. Name one one side, Orig. price & FMV on the other, and hanging on the knife or sheath. Also, probably good to have...group shot images printed out on paper with combo description and other known details on the back, filed away. Low tech, I dig it. Maybe high tech it for backup on Google Drive or something similar, then available to you wherever you are. I had records...til I lost my HDD (complete physical failure) on an older computer. :( Now it's all in the head as to what it's worth or where I can find out. That won't do for someone else if need be to sell them/gift them, whatever.

    Good to think about... :thumbup: Planning never hurts. :)

    I have a few friends in place to handle things if needed. Also have a spread sheet for my wife or kids to go off of if they want to do it themselves. Either way it should be covered and someone should have a nice collection of toys or a chunk of change if they choose to sell.

    Spider Monkey,
    Great topic for discussion and people to think about.

    Great advice about the tags and spreadsheet.

    LOL, I was thinking pretty much the same thing - $20 each at a garage sale, and then some jerk will come along and offer $5 or $10.

    OT...Have you guys noticed how much a creaking oak tree at 3 AM on a windy night sounds like the hammer cocking on S&W .38 ?
