Case knife info

Post by Terajo33 » Wed Jun 03, 2020 5:08 am

Hello i have 35 of these case knives. They all say nocallula collectors. And i can find info on the knives without the nocallula will this make them anu less vauable with that being on each knife?


Im sorry I shouldnt have uses this one as an example...i forgot it was parker edwards. The rest of the knives i have are case XX. But they all have the nocallula stamp on them. And i was just curious but I appreciate everyone that took time to answer. Have a good day!

Are you sure this is a Case knife?

And that doesn't look like a Case ID number.

It is a Parker Edwards knife, made in Jacksonville Alabama.
There is a city park and campground about 20 miles away in Gadsden AL called "Nocallula Falls".
These knives were probably either made for their Gift Shop, or a local knife collector's club.

My wife is from Gadsden, so I would be interested in buying one if they are for sale. PM me, if so.

The answer to your question is that, the same as with guns, club marked and commemorative knives are worth less than not decorated but other wise identical standard production items. The exception is when the decorated item has significantly different features that can not be found on standard production guns or knives. That is not the case here. However, James Bond might bid it to the sky because he has to have serial #007.

Welcome to AAPK. As others said, it’s not a Case knife.

Are you using the term "Case knife" to describe any pocket knife? Much like some people use the term "Crescent wrench" to describe any adjustable wrench.

::welcome::
Welcome to AAPK, Terajo33!
I apologize for not telling you that before. We are a pretty cool group of guys and girls here who all love knives, and we mostly get along really well. If you love knives and lots of family-friendly discussions about them, then you are at the right place!

Here is a link to the "Tips & Tricks" section. If you get stuck when posting pictures, or just have a "how-to" question, it is a good place to start. But, as you see, we respond to questions, too.
Again, Welcome, and I hope you enjoy your stay!

Here’s the link that Reverend meant to post: viewforum.php?f=98. (We got yer back Rev!) ::tu::

Regarding the question about how the etch affects the value, it depends. If you find a buyer having some affiliation with the place or organization represented by the etch, they might pay more. To anyone else it’s just another knife, so they are not likely to pay any more than they would for a plain un-etched equivalent knife - might not even pay as much, depending on their intended use for it.

The best way to find the current value (approximately what it might sell for) is to do an enhanced search of eBay for sold listings of the same or similar knife. Condition is everything so look for knives in relatively the same condition as your knife, or adjust accordingly. Rule of thumb is a lightly used near-mint knife is worth about half that of a mint example.
