    Yeah, and I have no problem accepting/believing.

    But because its a "secret steel" it might be anything, until I will cut the tip away and send it to Gator.

    As far as Kato is concerned, more power to him, I hope, and if Maxim is the guy I think he is, also wishes only for the best for him and his success through any sales outlet, Toshi, Knife Wear, CKTG, wherever.
    Ignoring a problem isn't always the solution.
    Today is as good a day to die as any. Except for tomorrow. I have plans tomorrow.

    I started this thread becose of concerns from my costumers, Kato is very small maker so getting more sellers will not affect him in any way. But been asociated with bad ones can affect him, As I been told from some emails that I got.
    That's why I made that thread so people know my relationship and our quality of workhoarse and other knives from him will not change.

    And you know how some retailers like to send Japanese knives to other manufactures and be copyd and sold cheaper

    So yeah some things can not be ignored unfortunately, tried that before did not turn out so great

    Let's not forget the power of $$$ when a substantial order is placed by one retailer, it can close the door on others, even the one who discovered the maker.

    I am super lucky I don't have that problem now with Kato

    But yeah Dave I know what you mean and it was done before on purpers by some retailers to close the doors for small ones
    In the end it can actually ruin the quality and reputation of the product !!

    I just figured it out.
    I have a sour feeling in my stomach.
    This whole cktg thing.
    I have no complaints about them or their service personally. In fact, in order to get me a knife before a holiday they 2nd day shipped for no extra charge when I ordered 3 day select.
    But...Who exactly am I supporting?
    I guess the deeper I dig, the more I shall learn and there will be a point where it goes beyond just knives. Well I have some things to think about I guess. Coming from 24 years of retail I can understand what's going on.
    I've had one of their Katos on my short list of what to buy next so that's why I posted in this thread. I've spent the last 90 minutes reading about the history/drama/ethics/etc.

    Maxim's are better and less expensive, so your list should've just gotten shorter.
