    the knife to the right might be a good one, USA knifes can be very pricey.... the middle one looks like a Spyderco..

    Not bad! Are you a magnet fisher?

    Looks like a lot of similar "evidence pieces" though...
    "Low resale or pawn value" stuff thrown into the river by a pick-pocket maybe?...

    Thanks for all the good vibes guys!
    To answer the questions about how I found this stuff: skin diving at a popular kayaking river. Some rapids are better suited than others and heavy stuff accumulates in holes in the rock. I was hanging out on a rock and digging out a hole beneath the water line and found the watch. Metal detectors are next to worthless because of the cans, nails, deck screws (see my previous post), sunglasses and knife parts, etc etc etc

    Unfortunately lots of broken glass ends up in the same holes, so heavy gloves are a must. I use some heavy blue latex coated wool ones from home depot. Its a trade off between being able to feel what you're putting hands on and not getting sliced open.

    I was able to get all the knives (except the Gerber open!

    The multitool is a schrade, the knife not pictured was a spyderco, as I'd by Toecutter, I gave it to my bro for a river knife.

    I'm not a watch guy, so the Tag only really stood out to me because it's really intact for where I found it. Look up Tag Heuer Link 200m, might be the best thing I've ever found (if real) IDK how much condition effects value, but it's got a great story.
