    As some of you may already know, I'm trying out something new where I'm selling my Martell Knives through retailers instead of only through myself.

    This is being done to increase my exposure, bring in a more steady revenue stream, limit the amount of communication I do, be able to make more high end knives, and increase the volume of product being produced overall.

    The initial run is through HomeButcher.com

    They have 7 Martell knives for sale currently. All are priced at the lowest point possible, what would basically be sale prices here. If you're interested in one of my knives this is the least expensive and most expedient method to obtain them. By purchasing through a retailer you will be helping to grow my business and this will be greatly appreciated.

    I can already see the benefit to this method of sale so I'm encouraged to expand on it. In the future there will likely be more retailers carrying my knives.

    Thanks for your time,
    Dave

    That's a good move. That guy has given a lot of small makers good exposure. Good luck! :Thumbsup:
