FOLGORE (as a seller) on Sharper Deals.

Post by Fishtail Picklock » Thu Jun 06, 2019 11:49 pm

I won the dagger blade/Ram's Horn 11 Picklock from Folgore on Sharper Deals. I sent the purchase price (including shipping) via PayPal. It seems that he is taking quite a bit of time to ship the piece. His Sharper Deals board statistics are excellent. Has anyone on the board had any difficulty in dealing with this individual?

Occasionally it takes a while to get a hold of him but ultimately you'll get your knife.

No worries. You will get it. He shows up here as "metalgod" occasionally.

Well, the piece has been shipped. Bernie FOLGORE/METALGOD seems like a nice guy but a bit preoccupied with life. Evidently, his life is a bit complicated.

According to the e-mail I received late today it is due in my mailbox on Saturday, June 8th.

Cheers.

I’ve purchased many knives from Bernie and I have never been disappointed.

Bernie must be really busy. I hope that he is making good money on his ventures. He deserves it.

May God bless him.

He sells some nice stuff but I don't think he's getting rich.
