Re: Lawrence -- Sharperdeals

I don’t care either way Ernie. Just for your own happiness move on and away from Sharperdeals and start your own thing. You’ll be fine without Sharperdeals Agreed. I hate bitterness and strife within the community. Me too. I wish Mickey and I had not fought. :/ Nice to see some good feels here, it'...

Re: Lawrence -- Sharperdeals

And what if Bernie was doing side deals and not paying the auction owner? You guys going to take back what you’re saying? No, not really... lots of people have done it and continue to do it. I won't throw out any current names but I will say out of the two-dozen or so knives I bought from Rick G. a...

Re: Lawrence -- Sharperdeals

I would like to say that I've done many, many deals with Bernie for a number of years and always he was a very straight up genuinely good seller to me very reasonable prices and takes returns if you don't dig the piece - puts the customer first always. Could the email situation be a little better? s...

Re: Walt's Latama 11" Classic Bayonet blade Primo B&W horn

Hard to believe they missed a pin that high. Yeah, I know what you mean. And that safety in the pic I posted. And the peek. The majority of them aren't like this. But for the lemons it seems someone will always make an excuse for it, and it's unlikely this will ever really change. Just gotta look r...

Re: Walt's Latama 11" Classic Bayonet blade Primo B&W horn

Walt does the right thing by taking customer service seriously. Especially when selling knives like this they will never be all perfect. Of course perfect is in the eye of the beholder but there are obvious (and documented) issues to look out for especially in recent runs. It's a bummer but there's ...

Re: Review of Exiled Cutlery Retro-Fly

No it's John Benson, the guy who got sued by Benchmade for selling knockoffs...

He goes by roadsideimports and Rubensblades is a known associate.

Glad this guy is happy with his knife, though.

Re: Chinese "knockoff" automatic Knives?

The only good thing that comes out of these counterfeits is that they're somewhat of a "gateway drug" to stiletto addiction. At the tender age of 16 I got a friend with a credit card to order me one because at the time I thought spending $60+ on a true Italian piece was nuts... well, let's just say ...

Re: I have been eyeing a 9" AB, ATS-34, Honey Horn, flat grind.

Very cool! I saw that knife too and it was a very reasonable price!

Also planning a trip to TJ this December, to meet with a guy I met on the internet... how shady is that? 8) If y'all don't hear from me after December, I guess you can pretty much make a good guess as to what happened... :?

...but you still don't see many for sale in stores.
because it's still a federal offence to import them perhaps, also normal individuals won't pay $60+ for a knife :P

Re: Legalization

Luckily, it appears that in most cases the letter of a lot of state laws specifies a ban on carrying switchblades. This is where the loopholes start because the legal definition of carriage is sometimes less definitive than what constitutes a switchblade vs gravity knife vs spring assisted and so-on...

Re: *** WTB a descent 9" swinguard"

If you need a 9'' you will have to go with AKC as I believe they are the only ones making this size right now. Btw AGA owns AKC. The AGA-branded swingers are generally much larger sizes
