Sounds like your goal is to market to different folks than the rest of us.
Or create a new market.
Most of us are not going to be able to help much on that end.
However there are a lot of accomplished makers here, who's only goal is to create a high quality knife.
There's plenty of help here on that end.
Real help, and realistic.
Realistic advice on what it actually takes to make quality cutlery.
I do suggest you head to a couple of knife shows though if you think the buyers are yacht owners...
There are those, and I am blessed to have a few as customers, but the bulk are just white collar, middle class folks, with an appreciation for functional art.
They don't have thousands upon thousands of dollars of extra cash.
That's why there is a secondary market.
The truly wealthy don't often sell their toys, or tools.
I am a full time maker.
There is nothing I make that anyone needs, nor have you proposed anything new that anyone needs.
Sure, everyone needs a knife, but there are millions of them out there that can be bought for a whole lot less than what we have to charge to feed the family.
I can buy a bucket of folding knives for $30.
I'm sorry, but your logic is back asswards, your goals are unattainable, and you have refused to acknowledge any of the sound advice that has been offered as well as refused to answer any direct questions about yourself. "I'm not going to answer to people I don't know"?.....then what the heck are you doing here and why are you asking for help from the unknown masses on Bladeforums??? Aside from some posts online and a few emails I don't know 95% percent of the people here, but we interact on the subject of knife making just the same.
I come here to learn and share, but I could have been more enriched spending thirty minutes watching the Captain Kangaroo show instead of reading this thread. I think people have been extremely kind to you throughout this thread, but this last post of yours proves, at least to me, that you are just posting to get a reaction, and I guess I'm guilty of giving it to you
I let this roll to see where it went, and now that it is there.
Holiday has had his say and been given sage advise in response. He wants to go in a different direction.
The others have expressed their opinions, and the general consensus is pretty much unanimous.
Time to close this thread.
It is better to die fighting evil than to live under it.
