    Hi, figured I'd ask here about this:) I have a AG Russel Folding Sting- it's a factory second (has the notch they put on it to denote that). It's not the spear point, but this one (not mine, pulled off google images)

    The knife has always been small for my banana hands and I'm looking to sell it. I can't find any prices to ballpark it. The condition is good, but not mint. I believe these were made in the US by Camilus. Any ideas of where I should start?

    Thanks.

    Seconds on these sold new in the $75 range so a used one will depend upon condition. Pics of the knife will be needed to tell you if it is a $35 or a $70 knife.

    Did you ever sharpen it?

    Yeah, a little. I bought it around 2004 because I thought it looked cool and I always liked the name Sting for a blade- thank Tolkien for that. Anyway, got it carried it for a couple of weeks before I begrudgingly accepted it was too small. Has sat in a plastic bin since then.

    Any "trails" on the Ti or blade?

    Faint trails here and there on the blade. The titanium looks clean. Some nicks on the pivot pin.

    Probably $50-$60 would be reasonable then, but the right guy who fell in love might give you what you paid for it and maybe $10 more.

    ]Too small for what ? It is meant to be a pocket carry ( or clip ) not a trail bowie:). I guess I'm one of the old school, I feel it is a good size for every thing except Sunday school/:)

    Hi Ron, should have said too small for me to comfortably manipulate:)
