What Did You Pay ?
« on: June 11, 2014, 07:05:48 PM »
I just opened a file with invoices for knife purchases dating back to 1983.LOL

What a blast to find what I paid for some Vics and others more than 30 years ago.

The first invoice is dated 8-28-'83,Wileys Supply:

Gerber Paul Knife SS.........$42.25

Gerber Magnum Field Hunter .........$38.40

Victorinox Champion........$31.30

Buck Frontiersman #124........$55.30

Buck Hunters Axe #106........$45.40

Buck trophy set #117........$39.90

Benchmark Rolox Viper.......$33.00


Just one more,dated Dec.4,'89 Cutlery Shoppe Boise,Idaho 83706:

Puma Hunters Pal.......$86.40

Ochs Hunter........$189.00

Victorinox deluxe Tinker.......$29.95

Victorinox SOS W/black Champ....... $89.95

Well enough for now.This so far should be good for a laugh.Enjoy.

I don't even have receipts from last week!   :facepalm:

but I am surprised at how much these items were back then!  I expected them to be less

If I can help, let me know

They all seemed expensive at the time.Some have dramatically increased in price,some have remained static.

For example:

The Paul Knife sold for $200.00.
I purchased another about five years ago and paid $160.00 for it

Gerber magnum Field Hunter is valued at $100.00

A new Ochs Hunter is worth $500.00

The Vics have remained a good value,even today.

I still have all the boxes for these knives as well.LOL.
