Do these ever come up for sale?
Sometimes, but they are more expensive than you probably think.
How much, ballpark?
Second mortgage maybe?
They must be pretty rare.....
You'll be staring at a price tag of around $600+.
Now I am not saying that i wouldn't want to own an atwood item but $600 holy
Are people out of their frigging minds???!!!
It's entirely relative. What some people value other people giggle and roll their eyes at.
Not my flavor, but $600 for an Atwood Goblin can seem downright frugal in comparison to a $15,000,000 iPhone.
Figure in 100 years, anyone facing the conundrum is worm bait (barring cremation) anyway.
I lucked out and found one on Fleabay for $50.
And you're sure it legitimate? Could be, but if a deal sounds too good to be true, then chances are it's not...
I got mine earlier this year and have about $450 in it. Still a lot of money. Small even by neck knife standards but a cool blade.
This thing called an Atwood "skeeter" is currently on Arizona Custom Knives for over 600. Looks like the same thing though?
I believe the Skeeter is a bit smaller.
Then why is it more expensive?
I guess the steel is made of an asteroid. Angels melt it down with their fiery sword of vengeance and Thor later forges it into this piece of magic. That's the only way I can imagine to put such a price tag on an all steel neck knife.
But maybe I'm just ignorant to the real beauty and the exquisite craftmanship of these items
It was marked as 154cm. I guess it's a combination of craftsmanship and rarity.
Thanks a lot Adahm, now you got me interested. Turns out there are actually knives legitimately made with meteorite in the alloy. Meteor damascus blades and bolsters.... That's pretty expensive.
Yeah, meteorite iron was very much used in history already, the best blades of the Roman times or for Germanic tribes were made of it as it was often a much better alloy than the steel the people could make.
Modern version, google Steigerwald Meteorklappmesser...
It has little to do with craftsmanship or material. It has turned into a collectible, for better or worse. The same as when someone pays thousands for a stamp or a coin or a pottery or whatever. You may personally not see the point but try to understand there's some people who are into it even if you think it's nuts.
The Atwood market dipped a little earlier this year. Now, it seems to be coming back. Plus, I paid less because it was in rough shape when I got it. Not abused, but definitely some use marks on it and a terrible sharpening job. I had it "restored".
