Gerber Combat Folder/Benchmade 9051 SBK
I have a couple of knives to sell. Both are "like new". Might have opened a letter with them but that's about it.
Gerber Applegate Combat Folder... $60.00 shipped CONUS.
Benchmade 9051 SBK, Combo Edge/BK1 Coated Blade... $125.00 shipped CONUS. http://www.benchmade.com/products/9051.
The Benchmade is a Restricted knife as it is spring assisted. Any company or individual selling knives in this category is required to have the buyer certify that they meet the following criteria as required by Federal Law:
18 USC 1716 (G) (2) (1-4) provides this summary: Switchblade knives can be shipped to civilian and armed forces supply or procurement officers and employees of the Federal government ordering or procuring or purchasing such knives in connection with activities in the Federal government; to supply or procurement officers in the National Guard, the Air National Guard or militia of the state or territory of the District of Columbia ordering, procuring or purchasing such knives in connection with the activities of such organizations; to supply or procurement officers or employees of the municipal government of the District of Columbia or the government of any state or territory of any county, city, or other political subdivision of a state or territory ordering, procuring or purchasing such knives in connection with the activities of such government.
15 USC 1244 provides in summary: Knives can be shipped by common carrier, that sale, transportation or distribution, possession or introduction into interstate commerce of switchblade knives is authorized if it is pursuant to a contract with the armed forces or any member or employee thereof acting in the performance of his or her duty may possess switchblade knives any may have them shipped to him and sold to him or her. The possession and transportation upon his or her person of a switchblade knife or a blade 3 inches or less is authorized to any handicapped individual who has the use of only one arm.
If you would like to buy the Benchmade then I will need you to certify that you are eligible for the purchase...and I will need you to sign the same type of form that you would be required to sign if you were to purchase this knife directly from Benchmade. I have the form and will provide it to the buyer for signature at the appropriate time.
If any moderator (or experienced knife buyer/seller) see's any issue with my selling the Benchmade in this manner (or has tips) then please comment.

Ok Guys, I linked-up with a good friend that knows a thing or two about knives. He led me to places like www.Gunbroker.com to research fair prices.
The result of his tutelage is a couple of price drops.
Gerber $60.00 shipped CONUS. These are going for $90+.
Benchmade $125.00 shipped CONUS. Retails for $255.00.
I will also consider trades and can take close-up pics from different angles, etc. Again, these knives are not NIB but they are like new. And...I'm not a knife snob...I just don't want to give these away. They don't take up much room in the drawer and I can always hide them around the house to fight Zombies I suppose (LOL).
I bought a ZPack recently...help me get out of the doghouse here!!
Alrighty then...guess I'll keep these puppies to prep for the Zombie Apocalypse .
Moderators, please close.
