Yeah, hang onto to them, Patrik. They're like money in the bank and they will only go up in value with the passing of time. As I'm sure you know, the knife market is going crazy right now -- especially on eBay. Everyday I see knives that I bought just a year or two ago selling in auctions for two and three times what I paid for them. Spyderco sprint runs are really ridiculous! *sigh*

Cheers, my friend!

Thanks Ron and you are right they will be more valuable in lets say 10 years. So for now I'm not in hurry to sell them so they will be a proud part of my collection and who know maybe one day when the time and price is right I will sell them to get something else.

Spyderco Pride ~ C72 originally had an MSRP of $49.95

In several countries throughout the world, folding knives which lock open have come under scrutiny and are being legally restricted. We've developed our C72 Pride to accommodate these restrictions.

Politically and socially friendly it has a 2 1/4" slip-joint blade of AUS-6 steel and a handle of brushed aluminum. Inlayed Into the handle Is an enamel cloisonn+? enamel flag of your choice: USA, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Japan, France, Mexico, Israel, Sweden, South Africa, Diver or the Spyderco bug. Special order flags can also be produced for any country, state, city, corporate or group logo (minimum order 350). The Pride's lightweight cutout clip carries tip-down.

Discontinued Product - No Longer Available

(Information in italics above is from Spyderco's website)

As you know Patrik, a knife or anything of value, is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I see sellers with "buy it now" prices on these for, as you mention, between 150 and 275. That doesn't mean they're actually being bought at those prices, though. You can ask whatever you want for something. That doesn't mean you'll get it. One way to determine their worth is to list them in a "no reserve" auction starting at 0.99 cents and let those people who are interested bid them up to whatever their desire to own one dictates. Personally, I would place a value of somewhere between 50 and 125 tops. But that's just me. I'd like to get one for much less, of course. *grin* But, then again, if I owned them I'd probably just hang onto to them. They're 10 years old, now. Keep 'em for another 10 and their value will probably double or triple? 

That's about all I can add. Which still leaves you right where you started. Sorry.

Hello Spyderco collector's.

Got recently 3 spyderco pride and I need to know what could be the collector's value. They are new in box and are discontinued since 2004  I saw some on ebay go from 150-270. Ebay can be pretty ridiculous on rare items. I really would like to know the price of them today.

Ever wonder where that Spyderco name came from? Here is a bit of history: http://www.knife-depot.com/knife-information-267.html

Patrik,

I truly appreciate your letting us and sharing that the box and paperwork are no longer indicators for this line.  Be careful out there folks, until Spyderco gets a handle on this buy from reputable dealers or someone you know to be reputable

Comment by Patrik Ilijev on December 27, 2013 at 17:32

Yes I do agree with you Clint it is all in my post below. We have to be extra careful where we buy our beloved spyderco knives.  

Comment by Clint Thompson on December 27, 2013 at 16:29

Patrik...

The counterfeiting or cloning of knives has been a real problem and will continue.  The bottom line is this.  When you get in bed with dogs you get fleas.  If you have some or all of your product made in China then they will counterfeit your product.  Gerber, CRKT, Buck, Puma, and others have experience this.  Now it is Spyderco's time.  To avoid this you have to buy from reputable dealers or if you go on line you should go to online dealers like Blade HQ.

It is frustrating for sure but you just have to tighten up your game on buying the quality knives.  eBay is not a good place to find quality knives.  If it is cheap on ebay then it is a fake.
