With that said, different makers have "had their time" on the forum. Once a maker gets in high demand, their waits become longer and people shift to other makers -- which is kind of nice IMO. I actually think that is the fun part. Will Catchside used to be an easy buy -- but no more. Marko has never been easy. My Mario blade was exceptionally quick. I don't even have a maker's mark on it, but it was quick and good.
And Dave Martell. I am not sure if many remember him, but he lured thousands of people into knife sharpening just to then lure them in further with pretty wooden handles, and then teased us with a line of knives. He is actually not a real person at all -- he is Kaiser Soze. Kaiser Soze is a bit slower these days.
Edit: I'm done. I seriously drank too much tonight.
