As a professional collector would you have a rough estimate of replacement value? I'm going to increase my insurance to cover my collection but I'm drawing a blank on this one. Thanks for writing an excellent price and general referance guide btw.

Quick question. Would you clean this or leave it alone?

Rare old knife, in great condition! ::tu::

Any cleaning should be limited to what you can do with a soft cloth, Q-tips, and a mild solvent like mineral spirits. A jewelers cloth is the most aggressive thing I'd use. More aggressive cleaning removes metal, and risks of de-valuing the knife. When you finish, wipe it down thoroughly with something like Tuf-Glide or RenWax to prevent rust. Handle it with white cotton gloves or similar to prevent leaving fingerprints - the acids they leave behind will cause oxidation. JMO ::handshake::

I'm also an advocate of Sackups for storage of knives and firearms. Been using them for years and can testify to their quality and effective protection and corrosion resistance. You can buy them online, there are versions available for storing knives individually or in multiples.

I keep seeing these knives that are 100 plus years old with what looks like a factory finish. People have to be buffing them I would think. I'm talking mirror finish, zero scratches, and so on. I always figured best to leave it alone other than standard care and upkeep.
