    Knyfe, I applaud the olive branch extended -- too bad that same branch was inserted into your back end.

    I stole it from Halston. Old people into fashion will know who that is.

    Man he has made 74 vids so far, I just unlearned how to cut onions watching his "how to juliene onions" what a cringing experience.
    I think he may get the record for most vids in the knuckelhead thread if more people see his stuff.

    i love kkf. it gives me views from many sides. i've honestly haven't bought any knives from mark. i've bought practically from everyone else though. lol. i've bought stones though. i think the guy's only being mostly careful with his international buyers since there's gonna be the shipping problems for the most part.

    In the photo, I see what mhlee is referring to - the bevel is inconsistent, doesn't reach the heel, thicker and then thinner from heel to tip, etc. What can one glean from the way the reflection of the light separates as it goes from heel to tip? Is this indicative of over or undergrind? Camera flash? Imagined?

    As always, appreciate the insight and time invested in newbies. My first thought when I looked at that knife was oh crap, whats wrong with it, and why doesn't the screamingly obvious error scream at me like it does to everyone else in this forum.
    Send it to Dave or Jon. Or spend a lot of trial-and-error time on the stones trying to grind a single bevel out of the many, many bevels that currently comprise the "edge."

    I've bought things from Mark; I admit it. I even once sent a knife back to Dave in one of 'his' boxes as a joke. Sorry Dave.

    I will say, though, that a lot of quality vendors here on this forum (HHH, Devin, Pierre, Harner) also sell through him. They don't get the fancy pumped up reviews, but I also recognize that it is another outlet for them to sell knives and make a living. I can't argue with a lot of what has been posted, but I also ask you to realize that in threads like this, amazing knife friends are having to hold their tongues and stay silent. I'm just saying.

    Bad product is bad product. It should be fixed somehow. And crap reviews are another thing too. IMO one of the worst things to come out of the KF fiasco was that knife videos and reviews were commercialized. I no longer trust videos as much and would think twice before I would do one myself. The best knife videos were 3-6 years ago. The day Salty yanked his videos was one of the worst days for knife knuts -- and it has been replaced by what we have here.

    It's things like this that gets my goat. Many vids. out there the guy says one thing while something totally different is going on. For that reason I ended up coining the phrase I got off this book.

    Chewie's the man.

    Some interesting points of view here. I've never bought from Mark, I probably never will because he has pretty outrageous shipping charges, especially when I counter in that I'd possibly have to return a faulty item.

    Does anyone think that perhaps one of the problems he has is that his company has grown too fast?

    I understand the issues he has on the knife posted in this thread, but I do have to say, I don't feel its fair to judge a company on an issue if you don't tell them about it (leads back to my initial question, maybe hes just selling too many damn knives to keep up the QC)

    Its just like in a restaurant, if you don't like the food, but you don't tell anyone, can you really complain about it?

    I don't know, maybe I'm ignorant and most of the people who give him reviews are, but how can he get so many good reviews if he really has that poor a service?

    I've sent him a number of tedious questions over the last twelve months. I've noticed his replies have gone from fairly in depth, helpful answers, to posting in a public forum, almost wanting other people to answer, to giving you one sentence answers purely of his opinion.
