    Now, if that party wants to clarify some point ("sunshing is the best disinfectant") thats not really an issue...

    Nobody would have any issue with this, AFAIK....either as a transaction or as an explanation.

    Protect flipping and flippers. They must be protected. And don't anybody call them a flipper or even suggest there might be flipping going on. Don't say anything shhhhhush.

    They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning,

    And we know Flipper, lives in a world full of wonder,
    Flying there-under, under the sea!

    I’m not going to comment on the main content of this thread (which I hear is dead), but I’d say that people buying up rusty blades and restoring them for sale is something different. I imagine most of these blades are low value items: if so, it takes some work to restore the blade, so why not charge more?

    I removed my initial comment not to stir waters. I would like to keep it that way.

    It is your liberty to edit your post, but I actually think that it reflects what is actually going on quite closely. There would have been nothing wrong about leaving it as it was. This thread was created to tackle the flipping head-on, so sparks do fly at times :)

    Restoring vintage blades and reselling for profit is a totally different animal than flipping a rare or NIB knife.

    Depends on the buyer. If I’m selling here, I’ll take off cash for every gram of metal I remove. If you’re just restoring some vintage $30 blade and selling on ebay, though, I could see charging for the improvement, since the buyer wouldn’t be likely to be able to do it themselves.

    Restoring a blade is not flipping. Whoever introduced that nonsense to this thread doesn’t understand what the meaning of flipping really is.

    Some of us may be trying to kill the thread by confusing it so badly it forgets to breathe and expires. Or slipping some acid into its drink, causing it to go on a long road trip to "find iself".

    Exactly. :)


    Tried and true political tactic.

    But what about the flippers who buy a knife and then sell it to someone else, and then buy it back, restore it, sell it to another buyer (but international this time), and don’t undervalue the knife so it ends up charging the buyer lots of fees at customs, and then complain to someone at Paypal about the purchase, and then buy another knife from a disreputable dealer, hide it in their dresser for a week, and then try to return it to JKI or JNS instead, and then give it to their mom, claiming a tax deduction, and then maybe use it at work, even though they work in finance, and then sell it on the black market (BST) for $50 more than it’s really worth, given that it has a big chip in it, and then go home to bed and dream about flipping, both on BST and in the ocean. WHAT ABOUT THEM??
