Not only is it as rare as a hen's tooth it is also virtually non-existent in the overall knife market. It's one of the few I can think of that money might not get you one. Because they are that rare. As far as I know it's the only Spyderco folder that has an indented trapezoidal opening slot. The serrated version has a serration pattern completely unique to that model.
It's one of the very few old school Spyders I've never owned. It wasn't even on the open market very long at all. I've only ever seen 3 of them in existence and all of them at the Atlanta GA "BLADE Shows".
If you were to find one in mint condition and you can buy it for around $500 to $700 I would get it>> Just make 100% for sure it's authentic because I'm sure it's one that counterfeiters like to fake. Because you could probably double your money in a very short time. It would sort of be comparable to owning a Van Gogh painting. It would be an investment you probably couldn't lose on.

Your location may also have some effect. I have no idea where you live but, for example, some knives fetch more in EU than in the USA while others fetch less.
Like I said the serration pattern on the serrated C-27 Horn models were unique. I don't ever remember a serration pattern on any Spyderco folder that is similar to that on the C-27. If a guy could get a pair of them you would really be in the driver's seat. I've got a pal who has a pair of the original Spyderco R models ( PE & SE) and he's turned down some pretty lofty offers in the past year>> because he's trying to sell the pair and most people only want the PE. So I hope that gives you something to think about with this type of investment.
