    Bob is a great communicator. Great job.

    +1 I think it goes to show that Mr.Kramer cares about his product.He could have just said "here you go that'll be $400.00 please.you figure out how to maintain them".
    Much respect for the man.

    Well done, it got across most of the information you need to sharpen that knife, and was surprisingly un-stuffy.

    I have to say, it is apparent that Bob works FAST. He talks, then starts working furiously for a second, then stops to talk again. Just look at 1:43 in this video that goes with it. You just don't see people being that casual and confident with a knife, he's practically throwing the thing around. Very refreshing. People should respect, but not fear, their tools.

    I wonder, if what sets Bob Kramer apart from the other master knife makers, is that he has that warm personality which makes him likeable plus he is very articulate. It certainly doesn't hurt that he is a good spokesman for his products.

    Yes. And I do agree that to succeed, one has to do an absolute best job one can. And to promote himself smartly. The write up Bob got, solicited or not, gave him exposure to general public no other top maker got. That probably what puts him apart from other top makers. Not the quality of his knives.

    I work in sales and marketing for products that make Kramer knives look downright cheap, and being articulate and likeable has everything to do with it. One of the sales guys I used to work with who had a 200 million/year account told me his golden rule. People buy from people they like and people they see.

    No disagreement here. I am guilty of this myself.

    I really like that Bob have this success. And I would like to have knife by him, but alas Im not on his list and the auctions are to expensive.
    Anyone got an idea how expensive a used knife is. Im trying to put together a test of 240 Guytos, and would be fun to have a Kramer there to

    Salty sold his used and it still hit $10k. And it's not like there are a ton of used ones out there.

    Get the Zwilling version and send it to Dave for a tune up and use that for your test.
