Knife Show

Got up early for me this morning went to breakfast then the Gun & Knife/ flea market, jewelry and pocketbook show.
I was about four tables into boredom and this fellow had an assortment of old knives, priced cheap cause they were cheap. I mean couple bucks to maybe $30. This lone white handled little Italian 'blade was the only knife without a price so I expected it to be high if it was an actual switchblade.
I asked was it real, he responded Yes and handed it to me. I opened and closed it about 10 times, pretty strong spring, firm release button, looked OK, not perfect but ok.
How much, I said: he finally said 20 bucks...I'll take it! Didn't have one with a white handle so it had to go into my pocket.

Sweet! A good get. I've found that gun shows are a great place to find cool knives at good prices. I picked up a sweet little Gerber, NIB, for $5.00 just a couple of weeks ago.

Not bad knife prices today, but people are still circling the moon with used, new gun crazy prices and they must still think there is a ammo shortage. These guys crack me up, they must have carried these boxes of ammo to 100 gun shows, most boxes are so bad they are falling apart on the table, some you can barely read what the box has printed on it.

I know what you mean. Our local show has a guy who shows up with tables full of all kinds of ammo in old looking, shop worn boxes at new store prices. But I picked out 4 or 5 boxes and made him a fair offer on the group and he took it ... not a bad deal.

Gun prices are crazy now ... some guys think Obama is still in office and people will pay whatever they ask. You have to find the right gun on the right table at the right time ...with cash...and you can find some nice deals here and there. Last show I picked up a really cool H&K MP5, 22lr from an estate sale. It was NIB, unfired, with the original receipt in the box from Gander Mtn., 2011, $559.99 ... got it for $390.00. Taking it to the range for the first time in the morning.

No Sir, did not buy the razor. That razor is "Special." It was my Dad's razor, been using it for a good while now. Cleaning out the bathroom at mom's I found a butt load of blades for it so I will use it until they are gone then put it up and save it.

It was mostly for size reference in pic.
