Some of the earlier models were made in Japan and sold in Mexico; later ones are from China. I have a couple of them.

There are a bunch of stuff similar on the Sharperdeal auction site, seems like prices are $50. Don't know weather they're selling or not.

It's from late 80's early 90's I think. I got it in the early 90's. Looks black in pics but it's dark blue.

I seen this one similar online. I didn't know if mine had that kind of value or this one is rare or something.

30 years ago those NATO autos could be bought for $10 at gun shows.

Welcome aboard MotoDave!

Your knife, and the knife from that ad are very different knives.
I think someone may pay 2-300.00 for a 1980's auto from Korea but that target audience is rather small.

I knew I had seen your knife somewhere.
From #2:30 in this vid. Your Knife... No helpful info tho...

Thanks, thats pretty much it. I was thinking of selling to fund a gun purchase, but I'm not sure actual value is worth more than sentimental value, lol.

You never know... I once re-finished a 15.00 flea market classical guitar in white lacquer. A few months later I traded it for a 240 gallon aquarium.

You might spark some interest in a trade involving the knife towards a gun... I think there is value in that sense. ::nod::
