    How much does a tip rework devalue a knife? Specifically knives in the $350-450 MSRP and $450-600 secondary market range.

    Also, while I'm primarily asking with balisongs in mind, I'm wondering about the price impacts on your more typical folders and fixed blades as well.

    Thanks in advance :deadevil:

    We'll get @crogers or @BennytheBlade to bump this down a couple notches into the JDBA and maybe get you alittle more info

    But I'd say depending on the situation of course, a "reprofile" could potentially add value in certain circumstances. Tip rework maybe no so mas lol.

    Ha yeah exactly, which is why I'm trying to do some math. I've heard some say that if the rework is perfect, value drop is little to none. But for a knife in that price range I have hard time believing that. Idk

    That's why if we're talking a known bali like a Rep or 51 or something you get a badass modder to "reprofile" the blade into something sick and extremely pokey. Then, put it away with the others and go buy another knife. If we're talking a production folder or whatever, get it reworked, set it in your knife drawer next to the others and......GO BUY MORE KNIVES!!!!
