    Pretty straight forward. But to make the thread more interesting, let's stick to knives that are worth more than $50. I'm not going to sell a $30 knife because I'm likely to get $15 bucks for it and it's just not worth it.

    I don't have the collection that many of you do. The XM-18 I own is far and away the most expensive knife I own.

    For me it would probably be the Spyderco Gayle Bradley. Especially since this is a discontinued model.

    I don't have an extensive collection either but . . . My Benchmade AFCK and one that is on it's way, a custom Protech Whiskers Magic.

    Granted I haven't ever sold a knife to begin with so I might as well say that I will sell none of them [emoji2]

    This was a Christmas gift from my parents back in the 1970's. It's the only knife in my 250+ knife accumulation that I would never sell.
    The only other one is a CRK Umnumzaan my wife bought me for my 50th b'day 7 years ago.
    All the others mean nothing to me.

    I have a Chris Reeve Umnumzaan that was gifted to me. I don't think I could ever give it up. Plus it's just a really great user.

    The one that has the most value to me on a personal level is my now thoroughly if not vehemently used Basic 9. It has been my companion on many a hunt, was lost a few times and found the way back to me. I loaned it out twice, and the second (and last) time the blade remained removed from my hand for over a year. That old Busse has been my companion on a slew of adventures.

    Honorable mention goes out to my six inch #1 by Bo. That would be another tough knife to part with!

    I don't have one. I've said it way too many times and every one of them is gone. I get bored with things and so I keep knives on a rotation in carry as well as ownership

    I never sell anything. I give or throw away.

    I find getting close to market value takes too much patience.

    Liles, Cox and and Voorhis hollow handles I will never get rid of, as they function as intended. Gerber Gardian II and the Katz Alleycat are keepers too.

    Are you excluding sentimental knives ? Because
    I have my grandmas pink sak classic, and my grandpa's yellow one that was in his pocket when he died. my first year leatherman micra. ( there's a story to it )
    My buck 110 was my graduation present, and I have a schrade 33OT that my dad was sent while in the army. There's also my late 60's western f48a .
    Non sentimental would be my case sodbuster Jr, and my buck 482.

    If you were to ask me what my one non special / sentimental knife was that I'd never sell it would be my buck 482.

    Cattaraugus 225Q ... My grandfather's combat knife in Europe. Looked like crap when I inherited it. I tore it apart and rebuilt the handle. It still gets carried occasionally.


    It very likely has bodies on it.

    This old 635.It wasn't very expensive compared to others I have.I've just had it so long.Out of the couple dozen knives I have,I still reach for this one almost everyday.
    It's strange because usually a tip down only knife is a deal breaker for me.This is only one of two TD knives I have.
