I recently became interested in collecting pocket knives. I was raised in Howard City, Michigan and came to understand that the Olsen knife company was producing knives there. Obviously because of sentiment I was thinking of collecting a few Olsen knives. I have not been able to find a price guide that has Olsen knives and I see on Ebay that some Olsen knives go for a pretty good amount and some do not. Which do I pick? Is there a Olsen knife expert out there that can give some info?

I have a couple of OLSEN knives which were made by my Aunt who worked for the company years ago, these have been very collectable knives for us in Michigan and for those who know the quality of these knives.
I would like to find a few more too!
Collect what you like and enjoy doing it.

Anyone have a picture? Can't say as I've ever seen an Olsen before (although I do have some tang stamps 8) ).
