Sad thing is....when the TSA agents first started their searching tactics, they were confiscating pocket knives on a magnitude you can't even imagine. Somebody had the bright idea to list them in lots on ebay...and lots of a hundred or more were common. I got into the game too late, as the prices were not that exceptional. In the beginning however, they were going for pennies on the dollar. You could afford to buy a whole lot just to get at one knife or so. A lot of people carry junk pocket knives for sure, but some people pride themselves in carrying the best like Puma, Boker, Sog etc(or were given great pocket knives as gifts)....when they were still decent knives back in the day.

I don't know if we talked about it on this forum, but a few yrs ago someone came up with a virtually new 2101 sitting in a closet, that never had any oil or gas run through it. This auction ran on ebay and I tuned out after $2,000....made my stomach hurt.

Wow, woulda been sweet to have. I saw a brand new never unboxed 2101 on c-list for 900 or 1k. I woulda grabbed it if I had cash.

I took some time the other day to take care of some unfinished 2100 business.

The left one is a Dan Henry ported saw. Next to that, I replaced the SEM ignition with my only spare. The 3rd is my super clean, unmolested example. The 2101 on the right had an airleak that had me scratching my head. Figured out it was the wrong carb gasket. Can't use the Tilly gasket from the kit to mount the carb.

Wow...I too would have been in there for around a grand for a new one....depending on what time of yr it was listed!

Anytime I see more than two running 2100/2101's in a collection, I get excited...lol

You're sitting on a goldmine if you can get the little buggers to reproduce! That's one of the few items on the 2100/2101 that I'm not going to get sucked into a 'hype' buying frenzy over. Plenty of solid ones about, albeit faded ....lol I learned the hard way that you just crank down those cover bolts firm....nothing more or you'll split the cover at the bolts. The air filter cover though needs to be on tighter, or it will work loose. It's reinforced pretty well at that screw joint as you can see in the nice pics.

But man yes, that's definitely 2100/2101 porno!

My small army of chubby huskies.
Hands down one of the best saws husky ever made imo and i scoff them ip anytime i see them priced accordingly.
All run perfect, i rotate them weekly and use one at work for dropping. Hard to beat the torque one of these critters produce.
Also have several in various states of disassembly awaiting parts.
