  • SPENCER: Hey.

  • What's going on, my man?

  • Rick here?

  • Thanks God, no.

  • He's actually out getting a quote to repair that golf

  • sign he got in Chattanooga.

  • Cool.

  • All right.

  • Well, maybe you can help me with this--

  • a Filipino bolo knife from the Insurrection War.

  • All right.

  • Definitely has some weight to it.

  • You're probably chopping up some coconuts with this thing.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • SPENCER: Today, I brought in a Filipino

  • Insurrection bolo knife.

  • I got this from a connection of mine who got it from an estate

  • sale in Virginia.

  • This knife is really unique because souvenirs

  • from the Philippine Insurrection are very scarce to find.

  • And I think I can get $1,000.

  • CHUMLEE: Normally I'd call Rick, but he really doesn't

  • want me bugging him right now.

  • It's pretty cool.

  • I don't know too much about it.

  • And what's really cool about this

  • is it's got an original label here,

  • by whoever captured it, stating where this was found

  • and who it was given to.

  • CHUMLEE: "My Insurgent War Bolo taken at the Battle

  • of Balantang, Philippine Islands November 21, 1899

  • by the 26th Infantry."

  • That's pretty cool.

  • What are you looking to do with it?

  • You know, I usually bring stuff in here for Rick.

  • And he's not here.

  • But I figured $1,000, man.

  • I mean, something like this that's hard to price--

  • and you can't find-- there's no comparables out there.

  • CHUMLEE: First off, I don't know too much about it.

  • Normally I call someone.

  • But I'm guessing it's probably worth somewhere in maybe,

  • like, the $500 range.

  • Yeah.

  • A little more than $500, man.

  • $850.

  • $500.

  • That's the most I'm gonna give you.

  • $700.

  • See, now I'm getting--

  • see, I've come off so much.

  • And you're just not bringing it up enough.

  • That's, you know, still gonna be a lot.

  • My wall-- $600.

  • That's it.

  • And I'm walking.

  • Last call.

  • You don't want to see it somewhere else

  • and get Rick all mad.

  • All right.

  • I'll give you $600 for it.

  • SPENCER: All right, man.

  • You're tough.

  • You're tough, man.

  • No, you're tough.

  • I'm gonna get fired for this.

  • I just bought something for what it's probably worth.

  • [LAUGHS] No, man.

  • I think you guys are gonna do great with this.

  • - All right. - All right, man.

  • I'll see you up front.

  • In the end, $600 is great.

  • This knife is really unique.

  • I don't know what the true value will be.

  • I'm sure these guys will figure it out and do good with it.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • COREY: What are you doing?

  • Wrapping up an item for customers

  • who are gonna take it home with them.

  • OK.

  • Chum, that stuff costs money.

  • Stop. Stop.

  • It's wrapped.

  • It's a piece of art.

  • COREY: It's wrapped.

  • Wait.

  • What's this?

  • A Philippine war knife.

  • COREY: Where'd you buy this?

  • CHUMLEE: I bought it from Spencer, your dad's buddy.

  • What'd you pay for it?

  • $600.

  • COREY: Chum, this is worth, like, maybe $200.

  • $200 plus about $800.

  • That thing's easily worth $1,000, if not more.

  • COREY: I know it's not worth that.

  • CHUMLEE: I'll bet you.

  • Bet me what, Chum, that I'm right?

  • I know I'm right.

  • CHUMLEE: I bet you it's worth $600 or more.

  • And if I'm right, you're walking Pinky in a tutu.

  • Cool.

  • And if I'm right, you're cutting your ponytail

  • off with this thing.

  • CHUMLEE: I'd never cut my ponytail off.

  • But I'll accept that bet because I know I'm right.

  • If you want to make the bet, make the bet.

  • But I'm telling you it's a bad idea.

  • So you're willing to bet your hair?

  • CHUMLEE: Yeah.

  • There's no way I'm wrong.

  • I'll happily bet my ponytail.

  • Chum, you're gonna be losing your hair, man.

  • Hope they got a tutu in his size.

  • RICK: [LAUGHS]

  • CHUMLEE: Alex, I'm glad you're here.

  • What's up?

  • CHUMLEE: Check out this score I've got--

  • Philippine war knife.

  • ALEX: They call this a barang.

  • Yes, they do.

  • COREY: Me and Chum have a bet.

  • What's it worth?

  • RICK: What's the bet on?

  • CHUMLEE: I bought that from your buddy Spencer.

  • He came in.

  • And you weren't around.

  • Yeah.

  • And Chum paid $600 for it.

  • CHUMLEE: He thought I overpaid.

  • It's worth about $300, right?

  • ALEX: Well, these are actually really popular with collectors.

  • But what's really cool is this little label here.

  • The 26th Infantry Regiment-- that's

  • when it was formed in the Philippines

  • for the Philippine Insurrection.

  • So this is a legendary Infantry Regiment-- a regiment

  • that's still in service today.

  • These guys were in-- in the beginning of World War I,

  • they were some of the first troops in France.

  • Same thing with World War II.

  • They're at the Battle of the Kasserine Pass.

  • And this early date, 1899--

  • I mean, this could have been one of their first battles ever.

  • That totally affects the value.

  • If this were just a barang in this,

  • it's, you know, $500 knife, maybe.

  • But with this, and tied to the 26th Infantry Regiment,

  • I think it's, like--

  • you'd probably get $1,000 for it.

  • Boom!

  • God damn it!

  • RICK: All right.

  • So what did you guys bet or whatever?

  • Corey has to walk Pinky in a tutu.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • COREY: Come on.

  • Let's get this over with.

  • [SIGHS]

  • OK.

  • CHUMLEE: Oh, that's a walk right there!

  • Wait.

  • Turn around.

  • Let me get a picture of you guys!

  • Corey, I really think you should get a small dog.

  • What do you think, Rick?

  • [LAUGHS]

  • COREY: I'm done now.

  • You know what, Corey?

  • Pinky's not enjoying this walk.

  • It's cool if you finish up now.

  • Just take her back inside.

  • I can't believe you got him to wear that.

  • He lost a bet.

  • You know how he is with those bets.

  • I will never forgive you for this, Chum.

  • RICK: [LAUGHS]

  • CHUMLEE: He offered me $1,000 to get out of it.

  • The pictures are worth more than $1,000.

  • Yeah.
