764. Spartan (Guardia Svizzera Pontificia)
Acriter et fideliter – this Latin phrase which means “Fiercely and faithfully”, is printed on the back scale of black Spartan, which we’re reviewing today. It’s a motto of the oldest army in the world – The Pontifical Swiss Guard (or Guardia Svizzera Pontificia in Italian), which was established more than five hundred years ago, in 1506.
This knife was a gift from my wife for my birthday one year ago and it comes directly from Vatican City.

I have one given to me by a bodyguard of 3 popes…I don’t want to use it…can’t find a value of it anywhere…..
Mine costs up to $40, (it was a price in a small store in Vatican).
If you wanna sell your own, probably better to put it in auction like ebay.
I cannot provide you the exact valued, because it depends – for each collector it might be different
