    Hi all, I haven't been on the forum in years. I have some bali's I wanted to sell but it has been so long, I have no idea what any of them are worth anymore. Is there anywhere I could post where more knowledgeable members could give me their opinion. I'm just looking for a rough estimate of what a fair price is.

    Google your balis and check prices if they are current production retail. If out of production check prices, on different knife forums regarding recent or past sales on used balis like yours. As far as I know there is no "Blue Book" on balisongs. Good luck.

    Prices have been all over the place and have ebbed and flowed according to a fickle market. You can try to post what you have here, along with a detailed description of condition, and some of the collectors here can opine what they would pay for one.

    people are asking the MOON for them

    dumb people are paying the MOON for them

    and the gdok should fetch decent too

    people come from ig for the voodoo sales so be sure to hit them up

    condition does play a factor

    Production knives tend to go up in value, customs tend to stay around what you paid for them with the exception to a few customs and makers that are highly sought after.

    I'm in the same boat... Have 2 Tach 2's, original AB's, Black/Multicolor Replicants, BM63 and BM67, BM51's and an Arc Angel I'm looking to unload. No idea what they're worth now.

    Hey sorry it took a couple days but here are some pictures, not sure how much it will effect the price but i had the handles on the tach2 chamfered so it flipped better.
    in order from top to bottom they are
    1. GDOK EX09 ( i have the latch for it, just got it so early with it being production #2 that he sent it to me before the latches were even made, so its not installed yet but I could throw it on.)
    2. McAhron custom ti handled benchmade 51
    3. Tach 2 (chamfered handles)
    4. Eman Le Brun custom
    5. Hom Prodigy trainer
    6. McAhron custom, ti sandwich construction with carbon fibered overlays and Mother of peal inserts

    Cause I like you...if it is the bowie:

    Mint condition = $600 to $800

    I've seen it posted for $1000 but I don't think it sold. If it isn't mint then use common sense and adjust accordingly.

    I have no idea what the other blade style goes for. Collectors only want the bowie.
