Well, the Browning Competition Knife and the BK2 are currently in production and easily obtainable. Of course, you said that you "NEED" both of these knives. Unless you are a trail guide going into the Congo, I can't imagine needing these. Then again, I'm not you. You know your needs I don't. If I really wanted the Wildcat and it was at a good price, I'd jump on it for the simple reason that the other two are in such an obtainable supply. I'm not familiar with the Wildcat, but it if it is a rare model I would say go for it.
I just googled Wildcat Knives and found one with stag handles for sale at www.froglevellanding.com for $95.00.
It looks like a Puma clone to me, but check it out versus the one at the pawn shop.

Did a quick check on e-bay & found this 'used' Wild Cat (doesn't mention a sheath) for a buy it now price of $100...

I hope you didn't take my comment the wrong way. Though I know I only truly "need" a few knives. I feel that I NEED any knife with Jim's mark on the blade. I have considered discussing a similar custom with Jim.

lol, it is a great looking knife and handles extremely well. In speaking with Jim about it, he was very pleased with the quality of the production model.

Just keep in mind that many of the custom makers have joined with production companies in order to market thier designs to those who would normally not be able to pay for a custom. There are many of the production companies out there that are making knock offs, but many such as Browning, Lone Wolf, CRKT, etc are turning out quality liscensed products which pay the designers for thier efforts. You may not be paying the maker full price for a custom, but they are receiving a portion of the sale.
