    Hello BladeForums:)! I'm selling a few knives. I accept payment by paypal goods, I cover fees and shipping. USPS money orders also accepted. The best way to contact me is by email- robcelani at hotmail dot com. Private Messages through BladeForums are cool as well. No international sales on these.

    I have a good reputation and excellent feedback here on BladeForums as well as many other knife related forums. I do this for fun but I conduct myself in a professional manner in all my transactions. I do my best to describe and picture items as accurately as possible to allow you to make an informed decision.

    If you want to purchase a knife, please post "I'll take it" in the thread and then contact me. An unconditional "I'll take it" by email or PM is also acceptable. Offers, questions, request for additional information or pictures, etc. are best done by email or PM.

    For sale however I might consider partial trades.
    In considering trades, I don't want any offers of current production knives that I can buy from a dealer. I don't collect that stuff and if I did I would just buy it from a dealer. I like quality automatics, folders and traditional knives. I prefer unused, uncarried, unsharpened however I will consider a quality knife with light use. Some automatic knife makers and knife types I collect include Microtech, Dalton, Masters of Defense, James Brothers, older Asian imports from Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong including miniature switchblades. Some folder knife makers I collect include Kershaw and Zero Tolerance. I am especially interested in sprint runs and dealer exclusives. I am also interested in traditional folders by Great Eastern Cutlery and Special Factory Order brands they made such as Northwoods and Bulldog.

    - Hard to find original MOD with plain edge blade and liner lock

    - Never carried, used or sharpened, always kept as a collector piece
    - Condition notes - There is some peppering on the blade. I showed a picture of some, there is more but it’s hard to photograph. The clip is scuffed which is shown in the pictures. There’s a ding in the handle which is pictured. See all the pictures as they represent the condition well.

    I wanted to add some information about the Masters of Defense knives. First here's a link to an article that talks about the history of the brand and some of the models including the Trident and Hornet - HERE.

    When these knives were produced MOD was considered to be of comparable quality and innovation to brands such as Microtech. Not many production companies were adding liner locks to their knives when a button lock was much easier and cheaper. Not everyone was asking Seals and martial arts experts what knife they wanted to see and then making it. The company that was doing those things was Masters of Defense.

    If you're looking for a nice collector piece both of these qualify. The are hard to find and great examples of what an American Switchblade maker can produce. If you want an amazing carry knife, again both qualify.
