Just saw a 2016 TC Peach Seed Jig TC Barlow sell for $430.00 on the Bay :shock:
Keep in mind that there were almost 500 of those made. That's crazy since a 2015 Copperhead Pick Bone TC New Day sold for over $100 less and only 67 of it were made. ::shrug::

The peach seed clip is one of the finest TC Barlow's but I don't understand that one selling at that price as it's used. I enjoy this sellers writeups as he "mods" his knives and gets more than the pristine ones. This one was "hand rubbed" to remove the etch and sharpened. Good for him making monry, but leaves me scratching my head when the last 3 of that model sold for 380, 230 and 230.

You'll be seeing that one relisted (probably with an obscene BIN that is still not as high as the "selling price" of the completed auction) within the month.

I would like to know the seller so that i can follow his listings. I want to learn from him so that can sell my GEC knives and become a millionaire.
Has anyone looked at the bidding to see if it looks shill ?
I had a very nice Stag Grinling Whittler that i sold for $140. I'm not much of a businessman.

Why is that? Winning bidder has over a thousand feedback.

Am I missing something? Was this #14 SFO more rare than others?

$330 is crazy for this knife. I believe I read that the distributor expects to get more of these from GEC so there would be an opportunity to buy this knife at the normal retail price.

I received a mail out yesterday (Nov. 24) from a GEC dealer offering this same green bone #14 with the boot shield for $125. This is the same day that posts above show selling prices over $300. I clicked on the link in the dealer email and there were still 8 knives available. I should have bought one but i thought $125 was a bit high.
