This is a fact!
For me it's more about folding pocket knives like case, hen & rooster, kissing crane, and the daddy of them all Case. There's others but those are the biggies.
Start getting into older knives that have never been sharpened since new and you can spend a lot of money really fast!
I'm a little particular about what knives I like and look for most.I'm partial to the doctors knives and trapper patterns. I love stilettos but don't know enough to make a real educated guess on value....yet. I do have a couple older Kissing Crane stilettos one with stag scales that I lucked into though.
What ever style you get into look for the better made ones. For Case knives thee are collector books that can get you in the ballpark with prices. I'm not sure about other types of knife though. I do know that knives that have a stronger collector base the prices can drive up fast.
