      No, sorry, we do not evaluate items on CW.

      My African history is a bit rusty but If I'm remembering correctly Kruger & De Wet were on opposite sides in the Boer war (?) The market for this knife would be first, as a political collectible (I can't read everything on the handles so I don't know what it commemorates) and second as a piece of cutlery; although they work together the handle art is the prime interest. Who is Potgeiter? Definitely NOT a military piece. Need to know the maker, length (folded), and how many blades/tools and their condition. I can see the corkscrew is broken. Assuming that everything else is in decent condition and working smoothly, if I put this on eBay I would expect to get $40+/-. Of course if two Afrikaners started fighting over it, it could go much higher. Poor condition of the innards would bring that price down.

      Folks around here really need to get the stick out of their collective butt about people asking for values. In the "What's appropriate" section of this site it specifically states, "While an item’s value can certainly be a part of the conversation... ." Regardless of any other reason for their interest, everybody wants to know what stuff is "worth."

      value is knowledge ron. well said.

      that knife looks silver to me. if it is , then it adds even more value to it. id think the blades should be marked accordingly if so.

      I'm 99% sure 1) the handles are die-stamped aluminum 2) the knife was made in Germany, probably by D. Peres. I have seen a variety of Boer war era knives similar to this. The knife appears substantial; possibly a version of what the Europeans call a "pradel" - their equivalent to the US utility pattern erroneously referred to as a "scout" knife.

      There seems to have been certain historical events that generated commemorative knives (such as the "Lion of Lucerne" knives) in much greater volume than others.

      I think boerhard has left the building.
