We’ve just released the much anticipated Part II to our Investment Grade Blades Blog Article!
Part I of our “Investment Grade Blades” article introduced the concept of investing in collectible knives and discussed commissions and purchases from an established master knife maker. Jay Fisher provided our case example for this scenario.When you buy a knife from an artist like Jay – you often gain in value between your initial commission and delivery of the finished piece. This is a fantastic premise if you can afford to purchase and hold knives that are worth several thousand dollars.
Part II will continue to discuss the investment potential of knives made by up and coming or new knife makers using Stacy J. Nabinger as a case example. The whole theory here is exactly the same as speculative investing in a startup company, or dare I say “penny stocks.”
