That's a great score.  I believe Buck makes around 10% of their 110s as limited edition.  So if you decide to rework them, it's not like you're destroying a valuable collectable.

Yes they would be altered. I could sell them for $125.00 as is. They only cost $25.00 each. or I could put premium stone on them and sell them with the nice presentation box for $250.00 ?
Or I can keep them and enjoy them myself for a while. The problem with something that was made to be collected is that they end up not being collectable. I surfed the net and seen that they have sold between $100.00 and $150.00 
 there was only 1,000 of each made and they are numbered.

Sell tham and buy a bunch more knives to put stone on. Stone scales would only destroy the value of these, unless you want a one off for yourself.

Thanks, I sent a pm to Michael Hoover and he said the same thing. I have found them selling for $100.00 to $150.00.  So now it is figuring out the place to advertise for sale.
Anyone have any ideas. If I was a member of a blade forum, that would be a good place to start.
