    I’ve developed a decent collection of knives over time but mainly benchmade and spyderco knives for edc. I was gifted these from a relative several year back and have done countless google searches and research on this forum but can figure out their value or age. I’m most likely going to sell them as I have some stuff coming and the pocket books running low. The first is a Tom Mayo TNT with (011) marked on the blade but I can’t find if it is a limited production possibly or what. And the second is a custom Darrel Ralph EDC but I can’t find anything remotely like it online. Thank you for all of your help! Let me know if I posted wrong I’ve been a frequent viewer but not much of a poster.

    Hi, sorry but the forum rules dictate you may not ask questions about value, unless you have a paid membership.

    You must have decided what you wanted for them/their worth, you put them up for sale not long after you posted your question.... good luck with selling them.

    The tom mayo TNT in Talonite is not a production. I believe it is a custom from Tom Mayo.

    He is still making blades in Hawaii, you could contact him directly and ask.
    @tom mayo

    Habe nor seen mim post since last year. Might try contacting him through his website.


    As far as I know, no companies made any production versions of his in talonite.

    Likely no. 11 produced.

    Probably a $2k knife??



    (Edited, to add, I see you have listed it for sale, looks like you picked a value). Good luck wirh sale.

    Which ever family member gifted those to you, send them a nice thank you card!!

    More info for you...

    The knife you have is a run Tom did to commemorate his ORIGINAL TNT’s.
    T stands for Titanium, the N is ‘n/and, and the last T is for Talonite which was the creation of Rob Simonich, God Rest his soul. :(

    THIS is an original TNT and there are a number of differences, namely Tom’s etch, the hole, and the recurved blade.

    I’ve have this and many others of my longtime friend Tom...:cool:
