A big one for me is badly packed boxes for items that were shipped to me. A number of times I have gotten things that were just put into an empty box, taped shut, shipped. I just got a package from Korin today that was packed very well, though.
By the way, I'm glad your package was packed well. Our warehouse guys are amazing. I tried to ship stuff out to my friends in Seattle, and the Korin guys repacked it because it bothered them how badly I packed. oops... LOL
I used to pack boxes and ship for a stained glass company when I was in High School and College. I learned how to pack the heck out of the boxes, but the stuff rarely broke! I've shipped a couple of knives and the packing material weighs more than the knives did!
I have many LOL but none related to Korin. :D
My head spins any time I see a reference to Swedish Steel or Swedish ore.
What the &$@% is 'virgin carbon'?
Virgin carbon steel, cold pressed (or rolled). :)
Phrases such as "precision stamped" or the like, where they attempt to make an inferior process sound like a selling point.
Also... "never needs sharpening"
Continuously curved chef knife profiles.... W.t.f?
