Default SW - 2000 S.W.A.T. First Millennium Run

I was gifted this knife a short while back.

Have done some research on line and haven't found one marked exactly as this one is.

It is ANIB condition and is a pretty hefty knife.

Curious as to the actual collectability and value.

A little help would be appreciated on this as I haven't stepped into this arena in the past.

thanx,
bdGreen

Collecting S&W folding knives can be a real minefield. For years, Taylor Cutlery made the S&W knives and they would make 100s of different types & styles, from which S&W would select examples for production to be sold via the annual S&W accessory catalogs as " official" S&W factory knives. The dozens of samples, all marked "S&W" not selected by S&W for factory sales, were dumped on the 2ndary surplus knife market. A S&W knife collector would have to go through all the factory catalogs of knives to pick out which knives appeared as "official" factory sold knives to see if their knife was an authentic factory sold knife. If a S&W marked knife can't be connected to a specific example in a S&W factory catalog, it is suspect as to whether it is a rejected sample , or not. Ed.

I have the same knife, and like you, won it as a door prize at a cop function. I was immediately teased for it as S&W knives are considered cheaply made, a low image in the minds of many. I finally took it out and used it and fell in love with it. In my small hands it has the perfect weight and balance (Iím picky with knives, owning many Solingen made Wustoff kitchen knives). I dare not tell anyone I like this S&W knife as people will try to force a Spyderco or Kershaw into my hands.

There is no collectable value. Itís just a standard 440 blade knife. I can tell you that itís made in Taiwan (maker of IBM & Lenovo laptops before China started making cheaper versions).

If it fits your hand, keep it and use it. If you want to sell it, I will buy it from you for market price, whatever that is.
