I would say they aren't worth that but most of the time they go in the $200 plus range About Doug's though
Looked at them for years but never will have one unless I can get one cheap

Hay CAP' Good to see ya' round been a while.
I have a spending cap. It is usually under $100. And I only pay that for really awesome tools(my average spent on brand name rare and discontinued tools is $50) The Vista shears don't speak to me and look like they should only cost $65 or so. IMO of course.
I see this more and more, with sellers "trying it on" with sky high prices. Ultimately the market will decide if it is reasonable or not: if it sells then the asking price was appropriate, if it doesn't sell then it was too expensive. Sometimes I see some bidders get in a bidding war for something that doesn't come up for sale very often, and after that the next lot of sellers think that high water mark is the "new" price (and sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't).
Nick the Greek: Dunno Tom. Seems expensive.Tom: Seems? Well, this seems to be a waste of my time. That is 900 nicker in any shop you're lucky enough to find one in. And you're complaining about 200? What school of finance did you study? "It's a deal, it's a steal, it's the sale of the smurfing century!" In fact, smurf it Nick, I think I'll keep it!Nick the Greek: All right all right, keep your Alans on![Peels off notes from his wad]Nick the Greek: Here's a ton.Tom, Eddie: Jesus Christ!Eddie: You could choke a dozen donkeys on that! And you're haggling over one hundred pound? What d'you do when you're not buying stereos Nick? Finance revolutions?Nick the Greek: 100 pounds is still 100 pounds.Tom: Not when the price is 200 pounds it's not! And certainly not when you've got Liberia's deficit in your skyrocket. Tighter than a duck's butt you are. Now, c'mon. Lemme feel the fibre of your fabric.
MAN greedy sellers get on my nerves sometimes. You just have to be vigilant in searching and maybe find a good seller you like doing repeat business with.Sometimes people don't really know what they have on their hands so they overprice it accidentally.And some people get ripped off themselves so they try to rip you off to get their money back...But I have found Ebay useful and it has definitely helped me grow my knife collection and save money doing so.
