I'm looking for a 8 or 9 inch Steel Lined Coricama for my size set. Any shape as long as the blade is full.

Thank You Randy T1431rs@yahoo.com

Is that price a misprint? $4500 I really have no idea of the value. If that is what it's worth I will have to start looking. HARD

Doubt it would bring more than $1500. Cool for sure but if you watch auctions for 15 years you get a good feel for what people are truly willing to pay.

Nope not a misprint lol . yes they are worth that much , i was offered 5000 for my 13 steel lined and 3500 for the 9" steel lined , the steel lined are more rare then the brass lined ones and very hard to find , good luck finding one i havent seen any steel lined coricamas in any size for sale in very long time , try to find one in any size and you will see just how rare they really are .

OMG!! Awesome display.

I remember when you got those knives Bernie. The 13” was Ragtime Red and it was a double he had in rough shape and he cleaned it all up. I think he sold it for $1800. The 11” you got from a guy who posted it here. I was talking to him first and you jumped all over it even though he and I were trying to make a deal. I think you paid $600. The 9” was off of Ken W for $1200-$1500 about 10 years ago.

I remember all this stuff. I’ve never seen a 13” sell for $5000. Anyone can “offer” a giant price. Doesn’t mean they sell for that much.

I think a dead mint 13” steel lined Coricama is probably worth about $3500 if you could find a buyer. And probably less for the smaller ones. I have some myself but I won’t sell them. 😜

the guy that wanted to buy my 13 and 9 stated to me what he thought they were worth but then offered me 5000 for my 13 and 3500 for my 9. you think you can find one cheap ask Randy the guy who made this post how long he has been looking. .

Say what you want but I know exactly the prices you paid.

Plus I’m certain Tim took apart the 13” you have and fixed it from being broken and sanded down the blade and refinished it since it was all sharpened up. Same with the 9” you got from Ken. The blade was sharpened on the 9” and it was sanded down and refinished.

Think what you want but I’ve seen more than a dozen 13” Coricamas sell on auction and privately and NEVER have any sold for more than about $3500. If some dumb bell offered you more than that you should have taken it and then bought a mint one for less. HAHA!

WOW you definetly DO NOT know the condition of my knives , first off the 13" was cleaned but never been apart or repaired the blade is full never sharpened and i DID NOT buy it from Tim ,years after i bought it Tim did contact me and told me that used to be his knife and sent me a picture of it with another 13" steel lined coricama he had , i was told by Tim personally everything about that knife and only thing he said was the handles were rough so thay were cleaned nothing else was done to knife , the 9" was not from ken and is dead mint the blade has never been re-finished lol , the 9" came from guy who found bunch old picklocks in a hardware store that had been stored for decades. not sure why you act like you know everything but o well more power to ya lol
also guy that offered me 5g for 13 and 3500 for 9 is definetly no dumb bell it just means he has bigger pockets then you lol
also 600 for the 11" steel lined thats what you offered ? no wonder he sold it to me and not you i gave him 900 for it lol
