Very expensive knives for sale.

If you saw the picture of my "knife drawer" you also saw (on the far right side) a folder with a very wide blade.

These are North Eastern Tidioute knives, one big blade and a smaller one. I have the complete set, and they must stay that way. Breaking up the set diminishes the value--to both you and me.

There is one jig bone, one acrylic (black with bright red veins) one ebony, and one cocobolo.

These folders have not been made since 2011 or there about.

All are new, pristine, never used and never scratched. If you are a collector, you'll know this is a fair price.

$1,500 total. I advise you come here and see the knives. I have acres of green felt (and some made into pouches).

If we ship, I suggest we take out full insurance to cover them all.

Knives

I hope this picture shows the detail.

I'd like to add a bit of trivia. I have made a life-long pursuit of knives since I was about 14 years old. To the best of my knowledge, there are only four varieties of Tidioute folders. Then again, I've heard that several people have seen Big-Foot, but no one has pictures.

Such is the much bandied "Ivory Tidioute." Fact and fiction says that a small number (sometimes defined as 25, sometimes 50) of these elephant ivory knives exist. The fantasy harps that no one dares bring his Ivory Tidioute to a knife show lest the Federales confiscate the item.

I can assure you, if this "fifth Tidioute" ever existed, I would have purchased it--or stolen it. To the best of my research, the whole collection is but four knives. Then again, buy mine and find 'the fifth.'
