There's a Hinderer's Tool up for sale on a popular auction site....
I'd like textured Ti for Gen 4 3.5".
And textured stonewashed Ti for 3".
24 slicer is up for sale in the exchange from the show, but expect the usual
Likewise. Its really a disservice to people who really want them. Sucks.
I have mixed emotions about the lotteries. While I share some of the feelings that it's wrong to flip a lottery knife just to make a buck, I don't think that the term "unscrupulous" really applies. I thought that the rules of the show stated that only those with "paid admission" were eligible. That would make dealers at the show eligible but not their extended families, who some have said were entered. At the same time I think that those who are actually doing the lotteries, the knife makers, should have the right to run them any way that they like. Their knives, their rules. I'd hope that an attitude of fairness would prevail but I realize not everyone is going to agree on what is "fair."
On Saturday I attended the show with my wife and we both entered the lottery. (She's not just decorative, she EDC's a Hartsfield Kozuka and a small folder, which, about a week before the show, was upgraded to an XM-18). She won the lottery! Would it be wrong of her to give that knife to me?
I've been EDC'ing an XM-24, purchased here, since I got it. I WON THE LOTTERY ON SUNDAY, having made a trip back (50 miles one way) for the purpose of entering the lottery again (and buying my wife a Takeda kitchen knife in the event I didn't win. [She got the Takeda, even though I won a Hinderer])! I REALLY wanted an XM-24, slicer to supplement/replace my EDC Spanto. When I got up to the table, all the slicers were gone, picked by the winners who came before me. Should I have passed on the opportunity to buy a knife because the exact one I was looking for wasn't there? Or is it better for me to take the opportunity to get a knife that I didn't want, in the knowledge that I could flip it, and then buy the slicer on the secondary market? I went with the second option.
How is it determined who "really wants them?" Is it by their intent to keep or sell the knife?

Not a "Chat" thread Gentlemen, it's meant to Help folks find stuff they want/need and we are NOT discussing the Lotteries.
If we can't stay on point I'll simply shut the thread down.
If you enter the lottery for profit, then I PERSONALLY, have a problem with it. It's Rick's lottery and he can run it however he wants but that's my opinion.
Flashpoint on a popular auction site! Auction ends in 8 hours!!!!
3" Smooth Carbon scales wanted....inquire within.
Cheap XM Hellfire wanted also - must be RRP (I know, yeah right!)
I'm hunting a good deal on an XM-18 3.5 for EDC - I have plenty to trade and don't care what scale it comes with. Gen 3 preferred and no beadblast blades, help me out BF family!
FOUND! Now hunting a stonewashed frag Ti scale.
