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.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.
