I am a high school teacher by trade but I have collected pocket knives since I was a teenager (About Me). I enjoy buying, selling and collecting knives and have been active on eBay since 2001 (Oldstuff79).

Collecting Case knives and early New England makers (Holley, Southington, etc.) is a passion of mine.

I Buy Knives & Entire Collections

If you are interested in selling your old knives, let me know in the form below.  Many people inherit knife collections from a relative and do not know what to do with them.

Most people don’t want the trouble of breaking up the collection and selling the knives individually.  I buy entire collections and individual knives!

I am especially interested in old Case XX, Marbles, Remington, Randall knives and many more.

Contact me via email:  oldpocketknives@gmail.com

You can also use the form below to briefly describe your knives below and I will get back to you.



Jesse recently purchased a knife collection from me.  He’s a great guy to do business with.  We exchanged emails and pictures and he made me a fair offer and sent a check immediately.  Transaction was fast, simple and easy… he’s highly recommended.

I recently contacted Jesse to ask if he was interested in my late husbands knives. Jesse was very informative and made me a good offer and even paid for the shipping.  It was very nice to do business with such a great gentleman.

It was my great pleasure working with Jesse from Oldpocketknives.com. I inherited a large collection of knives. I was quite overwhelmed with the process of getting values and listing them on line. Luckily while doing an internet search, I found Jesse. He responded to my email quickly and gave me a fair price. He was very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend him if you have knives to sell.

Sending knives in the mail:  USPS supplies free boxes for Priority Mail.  Each knife should be wrapped in bubble wrap, paper towel or something similar.  Natural handle material (bone, pearl, etc) are sometimes delicate and can chip during shipment.  In addition, knives should not rattle around in the box. Stuffing the box tightly with crumpled newspaper or butcher paper before sealing the box works well.  Knives are always sent insured for the amount I have paid.
