Large German liner lock auto
 
Recently came into this Hubertus 4in blade large auto knife. Scales appear to be natural color buffalo horn with nickel bolsters. Is it sound practice to store these with the spring compressed or should it only be carried this way and stored open? Appears nearly new despite my lousy flash photos and the blade appears never to have been used or sharpened. Whats it worth?

I found a WWII auto opener combat knife at a estate sale. It was dusty, and had been kept folded in a drawer for years. When I pressed the lever, it snapped open just like it was new. Was the best $25.00 I ever spent.

If you can find them, they usually are $200-$300 retail. Storing them locked and loaded is not an issue.

YMMV
