Having been around the knife and balisong collectors' community for years, I am happy to offer any help or advice I can give. I can help you determine the value of a knife or collection, usually by email. I am also occasionally interested in buying a few select pieces, or in some cases, a collection.
I am also happy to help with estate issues. Sometimes, when family members are left a knife collection, they do not know what to do with it. Selling them as part of a local estate auction is often not the best course of action. Although I am busy, I may be willing to look over the collection, clean up certain pieces, and put them in the hands of appreciative collectors. Not only does the family get more value for the collection that way, but the collection and collector is honored by having their pieces go to folks who will appreciate and care for them. Otherwise I can simply offer some advice by email.
Every once in a blue moon, I am willing to photograph a collection and even build an online gallery for you to enjoy the knives through. I usually don't do this unless there are some pieces of interest I haven't seen in person before, or if I have a chance to buy a piece or two as compensation.
