I had the same thought, for the guys that bought them as collectors for ~$1000 they can sell it for one hell of a vacation now. Still a shame these are ending up resold.

Yarborough Knife: Value vs.Worth

The value of almost anything is determined by the demand for it. In neoclassical economics the value of an object or service is often seen as nothing but price it would bring on the open market which is a competitive market. Neoclassical Economic Theory equate the Value of a commodity with its price, whether the market is competitive or not. Therefore, everything is seen as a commodity and if there is no market to set a price then there is no economic value. There are many economic theories that discuss this subject,value vs. worth. The Classical Theory of Economics,The labor value of theory, Karl Marx (Erscheinungsform), value is separate from exchange value, it is meaningless without a market. Value in itr most basic sense can be referred to as "Real Value" or "Actual Value" This is the measure of worth that is based purely on the utility derived from the consumption of a product or service. Utility Derived Value allows products ( Yarborough Knives )tobe measured on outcome instead of supply and demand. No single unit has a fixed value unless it is unique such as Yarborough 1, The knife presented to Lt.General William P. Yarborough. Tom Kelly

Go to their store web page. The eBay pages are always higher.


The owner of the company is a retired SF guy named Scott Kramer.

From the Museum:

I have checked the database. One of them 3611 belongs to someone here living in Raeford, but who is out of the Army. I am trying to contact him, so he can contact you. With the other - 3522, we are encountering a glitch in the main database and this number does not appear. We are trying to work this out.

I didn't ask about the third one as he's a GB that thinks it's funny people give a shit about this stuff.
Lo, there do I see my father. 
Lo, there do I see my mother, and my sister and my brother. 
Lo, there do I see the line of my people
 back to the beginning.
 Lo, they do call to me.
 They bid me take my place among them
 in the halls of Valhalla
 where the brave may live forever.
