The knives are real but I believe the display cards are reproductions.

That MIGHT be $1000 worth of knives.

They should put them on eBay, might bring the asking price there. The way things are there lately.

Those would all have to be mint on the original card to get that price. Actually, they still wouldn't bring that price if they were mint.

So if you all had the money you wouldnt buy them...which means there is not 10,000 worth of product..

If you hit the power ball and you just felt like you couldn't live without them, they still wouldn't be worth that kind of money.

I count 42 knives...If they were all in mint condition I could see an average of $200 per knife (a couple look to be Schrades which might average more)....If in "mint" condition it might be doable to the right buyer imo...

If they are normal condition knives with typical wear and tear, scale shrinkage, peak etc...I think they are dreaming.

Beautiful collection, but not worth the asking price.

What Sammy said. I think it was WC Fields that said, “there’s a sucker born every day.”

W. C. Fields said, "Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump."

Given what I see on that website, these are words to live by for the owner.
