    I would say that one of the lessons of this story for makers is - do not ask for a deposit (unless some special materials need to be ordered) - and certainly not for one that is close to the full price of the knife.

    A lesson for the buyer as well.
    The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

    Indeed. Or to put it from different perspective - only pay a deposit which you can afford to loose. $hit happens sometimes.

    I think Ian at Haburn is doing it right, taking a $50 deposit ...

    I think he took too many deposits to help his cash flow and then when his health went south, he was in wayvover his head with no way to recover. I think he had no bad intentions but the fact is it looks like he took 10s of thousands of dollars in deposits over many years and can't make good. The question now it seems to me is does he gave assets (like knives from his collection) that can be used to help offset the money he is owed people...

    this is correct, he will not respond to me and hasn't offered anything in terms of money or a knife of same value.

    I was just going to send my demand letter to the address listed on his site. If someone thinks or knows better, I'm up for whatever.

    Can I just ask for those sorts of comments to be refrained from.

    You have no idea when, how or what those were acquired etc.

    Yes you may be put some money but no need for those sorts of comments especially when they are essentially not here to defend themselves.

    We are meant to be a nice civil community after all, even if we can stray sometimes in the heat of the argument.
