Certainly Frank Richtig is an icon of American knife makers, like Scagel, Randall, Ruana, Loveless, and many others. A named Richtig kitchen knife isn’t going to command a price like that in the open market. Frankly if you tried to sell it for $150 you’d be hard pressed to find a buyer on most days. What I’ve seen on the market these days reflect a price around $100 or less. A lot depends on condition. Still at those values $10 was a great deal. If it was me I’d use it and pass it on to one of my favorite Grandchildren letting them know about it’s pedigree.
