    I went to the local flea market saturday am and found this!!!!!

    http://www.bladeops.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GER7158

    for $10.00!!!!!!! Guy had no idea what he had!!! It was in really nice shape. I will refinish it. It has the plain edge, not serrated like in the pic!! Handle is aluminum !!!! The cross lock safety was on. He said it didn't work. I asked how much do you want? He said $10.00. I paid him, walked away and opened it!!!

    I suppose I will keep going back there every weekend now!!!

    Are you sure it's authentic? I see "Tommy Hilfiger" and "Gucci" at flea markets all the time...

    Now you don't feel bad for taking advantage of this poor sap? Just a few weeks ago there was a thread about the gun show parking lot and 2 .30 carbines... The bloke got praised for "doing the right thing" and paying twice the asking price...

    I don't feel bad. I buy alot of knives from this guy. I also got a Benchmade Griptillian, plain blade, blk handles for $10.00 (Like New) that is now my carry knife. He is an older guy who gets the knives from somewhere. Pawn shops maybe?? Yard sales?? I don't know. He asked what he wanted. I paid him. I had no way to know if the knife worked when I bought it.

    Giggling like a giddy school girl with a pokerface, I believe!!!!! LOL :rofl::rofl:
