    Hey guys. Haven't been on here in years. Kid got older, house got bigger and truck got more expensive haha. I can't be buying $300 knives every month anymore. Haven't been in the hobby like I used to be. Anyways, stopped by a gun shop on the way home. They have hundreds(literally) of knives. They have a brand new Szabofly VG-10 for $300? I know these are about 10 years old, but I could not find anything on original pricing. A few sales forums came up, but they were deleted because they were so old. I like it, but is that a decent price? Any info would help. Thanks in advance.

    That's a very good price for a bnib vg10 Szabofly. Careful tho, there are a ton of clone versions. You would have no problem reselling for more if u lost interest in it.

    That's about what a VG10 Szabofly goes for in today's market.

    I agree....You gotta be 100% that it's not a damn clone though. That and the spiderfly are just as copied as the 42.

    I think he will, $300 is top dollar for that knife ,breaking even would be more realistic

    Good to know.. how quickly things change! I had a mint production version (non vg10). Wasnt for sale but was offered considerably more than 3 for it, and ended up letting her go. Could have just been a 'heart wants what the heart wants' situation.

    If it's legit, I would buy it! It's a good price IMO.

    Yep just went back to check it out and handle it. The guy told me that Szabofly and a few others were in the drawers for the past 16 years. They were personal unused stock from the owner of the shop. Absolutely brand new condition with factory edge. I even saw the old school spyderco matching box that comes with it. VG-10 labeled number 065

    That sounds awesome. Don't have to question things like this when purchasing from reputable sources such as these:

    Looks exactly like that. Same box. How much did that go for?

    Everybody is saying the price is in the market range. It might be on the higher end but we're talking about a $20 difference...$280 - $300.

    It's original stock. It's mint. You're on a knife forum asking about a knife (which means you like knives).

    So get the damn knife and don't haggle about the price. Support your local gun/knife shop.

    ***Post the pics afterwards
