    Interesting. I like Coye stuff. I just have the Ridgeback after the “other company” started making it. Is he still making knives? I thought I’d heard he’d officially sold off his designs/retired or moved onto something else.
    I’d like to see a picture or two, even if for nothing else than just seeing rarity.

    He sold his designs to Boker, but from what I've heard, he still makes a limited number from his own shop.

    I have an original ridgeback from when he was making them. Cool knife, I was in a tool store in Tulsa one day about a year or so ago and saw a guy with a Coye knives shirt on and it turned out to be bill, nice guy

    I think the only design he sold to Boker were the Ridgeback and Oscar Mike. I remember seeing the Alpha Echo for sale a long long time ago, before Coye became real popular. I happen to win one in a raffle that Bill did for the Wounded Warrior Project. I won it early in my LEO career, so I'm guessing 10 years ago.

    Attached are my Coye’s, the AE and a 2011 RB.

    Yeah, unfortunately. It’ll be 12 years this August. It’s a shame I didn’t start at a department on the pension; I’m only 7 years in. 30 years is a longggg time... I mean, I’m only 35.

    It does seem like just yesterday doesn’t it, when I was dropping by to visit you all the time coming home from Ada.

    Yup. Hopefully with spring break coming up in a few weeks, we can come to T-town, get a hotel and you guys can come over and the Elis can swim while we shoot the breeze. Can't wait to meet the wife.

    Sorry for the thread hijack. :sorry1:

    Ef9 thanks for the pics. Very nice knife! Sorta has a resemblance to the Nimravus. No idea of it’s worth, but gotta be several hundred at least I would think.
    I’ll starting the bidding for ya: $1! :hypnotize:
