of course this could be true.
i just dont understand why they would do this whether its the same stone or not.
also notice how quickly adam nipped the conversation right in the bud.
its also odd that anyone can buy a stone from maxim including mark and ken and just make their own comparison. it seems this has yet to happen nor does it seem like ken cares beyond claiming his stones are the best and to be compared to them should be considered an honor... that right there is a bad position to put oneself. although i know that to a degree about some of the things i have been paid to do or provide. i have never been a new kid on the block saying my stuff was the best... been a new kid many times. in the end, im merely working with great/good know great/good and likewise still keep my enemy bad/failure closer then good/great/best. what does bad/good/great/best even mean. even if talking about stones and knives.
why not do it to jon... maybe because he is still a vendor... maybe becuase he doesnt really sell naturals.
maybe maxim is more directly in competition with ken... i guess in a small market like natural stones any competition is bad competition.
something tells me though this is not about that. could i say what its about... certainly not. sometimes in life you are just along for the ride.
clearly ken has no love for mainaman... and i guess mark has little respect for maxim. these are about the only conclusions to be drawn by the likes of me; someone not holding any cards because im not a player in the game.
