    Well I have officially completed my first knife transaction (aside from friends and family)..The guy was more than happy and felt I had undercharged him for the piece!...Thanks to everyone here who has given me advise and who has helped me out along the way. I learn something new every time I log in!

    Congratulations on the first sale. If you don't mind what did you sell it for? I am still a ways away from selling but I have looked into the pricing issue with all the pitfalls involved in over/under pricing. I'd love to hear just to get a better idea on your thoughts involving the pricing issue.

    Love the adirondack antler. I'm originally from saranac lake so I immediately felt a connection with that knife! Congrats!
