Voyles Knife Auction No. 42 is history

voylesauction42dec08

Auction prices are a real- time reflection of the market- at that time and under those conditions. 

Voyles Auction #42 is now closed and it was a success. Clearly the majority of the lots sold for well in excess of their minimums.

The auction inventory consisted of all types of knives- customs, vintage and current productions. The caliber of the knives were from just under $5000 to under $50.

135 lots were offered (a lot in many cases included more than a single knife). It appears 131 lots sold, however a few of the lots minimum didn’t appear under the description. 

4 lots failed to reach the published minimum and 9 lots sold at their published minimum. Total sale right here before Christmas was a tad over $36,000, before you add the Buyer’s Premium (13% for credit card purchases, otherwise 10%).

Gray Taylor Custom

5 lots sold for over $1000. Lot #1 was the only one to sell for over $2000. This knife was the highest sale in the auction. It was a Gray Taylor, Kingsport, TN exquisite folder. Tortoise insert in the interframe, relief engraved with gold inlay throughout, gemstone thumbstud. 3 ½” long closed, hand rubbed finish. It sold for $4650.

9 lots sold for between $500 to $1000, with the balance of 121 lots selling for under $500. Like I said, this auction had something for everyone.
