    HSN Knife Collector's Show


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I just heard on the KCS (please, no comments on why I would be watching this tripe) that these idiots were at the SHOT Show last week. Someone who attended please tell me that you set these jokers straight!
    What the hell would they be doing at SHOT?? It isn't like they sell any good quality blades, or is that about to change?

    Those 2 clowns that hock those junk knives make me sick!!!!!

    Recently my daughter was in the hospital and I was flipping through the channels in the middle of the night and low and behold there they were. I almost got sick listening to them! I seriously thought about giving them a call and telling the operator how wonderful I thought the deal's were and just seeing if I might could get them on the phone. Now I completely understand that there IS a market for junk knives, and if that is what people want I will sale them to you all day long, but I will never, ever go on and on telling you what kind of a bargain you are getting on such fantastic knives! How them jokers can do it with a straight face is beyond me!

    Then there are the folks calling in saying how wonderful the knives are. It really scared me! Surely the phone calls are set-up. I just can't imagine anyone buying this crap and not being disappointed.

    Oh Well, enough ranting! Just my thoughts on the subject!

    I've tried calling those kinds of shows before. The screener won't let you talk publicly unless you can prove that you've bought something there. They say something to the effect of, "Are you a home shopping club member?" And if you answer in the affirmative, they require a number code as evidence.

    HSN 'knife' salesmen:

    Evil, cynical, devious, dastardly, mean-spirited, manipulative, soul-less, cunning, crafty, greedy, and amoral? YES

    Idiots? NO. Well, maybe their customers.

    Oh, I agree it is a very FUNNY show.

    LOL! Yeah Dex, Frost Cutlery is probably coming out with a couple of new specials for them to peddle. I can see it now: The Windbag Bowie and Flatulent Katana.

    Hi All,
    Are we talking about the Home Shopping Network or are we talking about the Shop at Home Network??? Not the same thing, although the products are about the same.
