Nice strawman "defending" in order to do a little name-dropping...These are both men of the highest integrity and the notion that they’re somehow going around the free market is nothing short of ********ery.
Just because a lot of the people on this forum lack class doesn’t mean the whole community does.
i only asked for clarification. My comment was just as valuable as yours.I responded to everything of value you said.
i actually think it would be good to fully disclose how knives are sold. And that is related to the topic.Could this thread be closed please? Nothing even remotely near topic or productive. Currently just setting a bad mood.
Think Matus stated most of what seems relevant. If something is left uncovered, I'd suggest making a new thread with a clear topic and hopefully less toxic start point of the discussion.i actually think it would be good to fully disclose how knives are sold. And that is related to the topic.
what I see here is similar to people not voicing negative opinions about a lot of knives because they’re worried they might diminish resale value down the road...
i did not agree with the voices here Recently that singled you out for moderation getting out of hand, but honestly: why you have to single and call me out while I was BY FAR not the only one keeping this thread alive, is beyond me. And it’s really not a Zombie that has been dead for ages. If you feel this is a meaningless discussion, that’s one thing and for you to decide .... but it’s not anywhere close to whole threads spiraling into a CM hatefest...I was about to close this thread and then @alterwisser had to do this last minute attempt to resuscitate the zombie ...
Is there really lack of clarity how makers sell their knives? I mean - all do it nearly exclusively online. Most stop taking custom orders at some point as they made themselves a name and are not dependent on it. Some still do take customs later for one reason or another. Most just drop their knives on their sales-pages, some announce the event in advance. Some go through the trouble of setting up a lottery system that makes people to complain less (like Bloodroot Blades guys do). Most makers seem to refuse to break their own rules by selling a knife 'offline'. Otherwise they would open a completely new can of worms.
Did I forget something relevant?
thanks for clarification. That’s what I wanted to know. I agree with you that it’s highly unlikely that Bryan would do that. He doesn’t seem to be driven by profit maximization. He could sell his knives for a lot more and doesn’t.To address, I have never heard of a single case of someone offering more cash to circumvent Bryan posting a knife. I, like many, have sat at the computer at 7pm french time and missed. However, I don’t blame the seller or attack him ( and devoted customers ). That’s what we have here, and it’s low class and, frankly, supplying incorrect information to those who may not know the score.
