Bryan Welcome to the Great Eastern Cutlery Group, we're glad you joined us.

Hi Brian

Thank you and to answer question, Yes they're all forsale as we raise money for the nonprofit through our pocket knives sales. I love knives and have collected them for 55 years as a lot of them were handed down through the generations. Contact me and I'll give you the scoop on where you can view them with descriptions and plenty of pictures on Ebay. We will sell outside of Ebay also and all you need to do is message me with an offer.
