NEED HELP QUICK!!

Postby ruxton » Thu Feb 14, 2002 1:00 am

right i'm in an internet cafe and i'm agonising over what to buy from the knifeshop up the road... they have a bob lum tanto with titanium handle for 304.45 euros which equates to £185, is that a good price?? i've never seen one for sale before on the internet or in real life, they also had a CF dragonfly for about 170 euros

i spotted a police which was either aluminium/tufram/titanium for about £87 (dunno what metal the handle was, it had rivets and the blade was serrated G-2, any help identifying would be appreciated) thanks guys, speed is of the essence i'm only here for a day or so, post replys double quick, i need to know how much these three knives are worth. i know ya won't let me down guys (and kahz)...

That seems like a little much for the Lum, but that is based on them being $100-140 here in the US.

but isn't that for a G-10 one, aren't the titanium ones worth more?

I have seen the Ti lums on ebay for about 100.00.It seems like a good price on the cf.I gave 80.00 US for mine and don't regret it for a minite.The Police sounds like an old model SS handle.If I am right the price on it would be about 45-50 US and that would be a steel.A shop has a PE one here for 82 US.They have had it for a few years and have not raised the price I am thinking about getting it myself.

i'm *pretty* sure it isn't stainless steel, i have a SS police and this feels considerably lighter but the same size, lighter colour and less reflective, its sorta grey rather than the brushed chrome of a SS one, not to mention the rivets

I agree with Samo, get the CF Fly.

In the land of knives, Spyderco is king.

If that police is not th SS one than it is just as rare. might as well get it too, and if you dont keep it, than try to make a nice profit!

right, just to update, i am gonna get the police because i agree with samo it really is AWESOME <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
i picked up a beauty yesterday for 104.45 euros (about £62) a *wait for it....* RED endura (serrated G-2 with moulded FRN clip)
i'll give the lum tanto a miss unless i can beat the price down (doubtful)
mum says i can only get one so i'm goin with the police, even tho it has no box. i will try to persuade her to get the CF dragonfly too tho...
