Keep or sell

Post by Camillus » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:56 am

I have two Bulldog prototype knives made with Apple Coral scales that are becoming very rare in collecting this brand,
I’m not sure if I should sell them as a pair or individuals?
Or sell my collection of Bulldog Knives including these two rare knives.

If I were able to buy, I would buy the Congress as I already have the Scout which I am very fond of. Have you posted any photos of your collection on the Bulldog thread or elsewhere?

Knives seem to do better sold individually for some reason. I like getting sets and have several Case mint sets, but trying to sell them as a set doesn’t bring enough. But then you look on ebay and see someone selling one knife from the set and it’s bringing almost as much as both cost originally. I can’t figure that out for anything.
If I were buying a collection, I would pay more per piece if it has nice knives still in the collection and not picked over and only getting the left overs.
But if you have a store or an ebay account and you want to do all the work, you will always get more selling it off individually.
Good luck and if you need help, just ask.

Technically they are not a set, they are individual protos. I would recommend if selling, to sell by the piece. As far as selling your collection you would get more by the piece. I have sold both ways, the only reason I ever sold a set as a set, was more personal, I just did not want to break them up even though I knew I would get more money. I also knew that I would never sell them off individually, just me. Best of luck.
