This will not last forever. In a year or 2 or 3 at the most, the 'fad' will move on to other GEC patterns and prices of the 81 will drop to a more 'sensible' range, still in demand but not as intensely so. If there is a GEC pattern you like and right now prices on ebay are close to original, then now is the time to buy because it could become the 'fad' pattern of tomorrow. And if the pattern you really like is very high right now, wait for a year or so and you likely will get the same knife for less.
The 81 abilene stockmans were made in 2013, so far the only run. I think they will always be pricey, there's just not that many and it's such a good stockman. Sometimes you can get lucky but it's not the norm when they turn up.
