OP I got your point and agree.
the moderaters are little girls on this forum. freedom of speech you pussies grow apair and let us say what we want. esav the midnite super losers feelings especially fragile. and yes tops has poor marketing all around
you "civies" just don't understand. Tops spends WAY too much time looking for "hardcore slogans" to deal with piddly stuff like spell check. Remember cuz these knives hard-core man... they don't have time to bleed (or check grammar).
I only have one TOPS knife, but I like a few of the designs and will probably buy more. I'd be more inclined to do so if I could actually find a little more information about the knives in their catalogue though, which seems to have been omitted in favour of the endless repetition of some rather juvenile slogans and a lot of posturing.
I think my posting record certainly shows that I don't have an English degree, and I'm happy to have a laugh, but surely it's worth TRYING to make your posts intelligible. When you get posters who can't even be bothered to add ANY punctuation, and type like teenage girls used to text five years ago, isn't it just a bit insulting to other posters? If people struggle with their English that’s one thing, but to CELEBRATE ignorance is quite another.
Looks like they simply contracted out their web design to a foreign firm that had difficulty translating the product descriptions.
In the OP's defense, I take it with this intimate knowledge of product descriptions from deal extreme, and the other chinese vendors, this is how he came to the conclusion on TOPS.
Tops is about steel sandwiches, not Pulitzer prizes.
Dear TOPS Knives, Please hire someone who knows How to HT & GRIND your own knives better, before you sell them $100+up, even if I know that you release knives made of 1095 Super Stell.
In a strange way, I think their type of poor advertising helps sell the knives at the prices they charge.
If you are smart enough to know it's unprofessional and that there is a lot of blown smoke, you are already not the type of fish they are trying to catch.
Personally I find Tops' advertising much more amusing than Cold Steel's if only they had videos....
Mike Fuller's probably been outsourcing the development of his web site to the local Assisted Living home. I'm telling you, it's not long before we see the knife descriptions turn into never-ending, grammatically incorrect rants about how things were better in the "good old days."
Ah, well... gotta give dem old folks something ta do, right?
I'm glad this thread was resurrected, even if it was by some idiot with writing skills that're even worse than those of the folks at the Idaho Falls Senior Center. I've been holding these emotions inside myself for far too long.
