    Hi guys a guys I posted on a jake hoback kwaiback for sale,I commented on the saying I will take it if it's full custom. He didn't reply right away. I went to sleep and re awoke to find he replied that he thought it was full custom. Soo I was like that's cool I'll take it. I was the first guy stating I would take it and he sold it to someone else. I played fair and square by the rules stated I wanted it and got in first. Now he's saying someone else bought it before I replied. Surely he can't do that. That breaks the blade forum rules and code. Need some advice how to claim my knife.

    Thanks guys.

    A seller can sell to whomever he/she chooses.
    How do you know another member didn't claim it via PM?

    True, seller can sell to whomever they like. It's their item after all, their sale. We cannot force one person to sell to another. The problem is that it's unenforceable and unreasonable. However, if a seller specifically states criteria for the sale, they need to honor it. It's their due diligence. If we establish a pattern of someone that requires buyers go through hoops and hurdles to purchase, only to turn around and ignore it all, then we can do something. But we need to see this as a recurring behavior.

    I PM Gazza explaining why the knife was sold. When he said he would take it he had stipulation about the grind was it a custom grind or production it was not a clear "I'll take it". That was a gray area I was unsure about so being the second owner and not educated to grinds I marked the knife sold until I could contact Hoback to get the real deal on the grind. Which is my right to do as the seller. Hopefully that clears it up and seems petty it got to this. My feedback is 100 % perfect and I wanted to keep it this way by getting the real deal info from Hoback. Respectfully, Raymond

    Well, now you have a reason not to sell to him, so there's that.

    ^ It's not your knife!

    ^ Very petty indeed! :thumbsdown:

    FWIW: if a person here, attempts to impose a stipulation in one of my sales thread's, I'll move on and never deal with them. It's very poor form, IMO. :thumbsdown:

    But that's fine If the seller dosnt want to sell I will move on. I am willing to send PayPal gift and not care if it's midtech or not, cos I think it's worth it. I tried to do the right thing. I honestly didn't know enough about hobacks. But it's hoops like this which make it hard for ppl to buy knives. Hence why the market is dying off. Imho

    Paying with PP Gift is in no respect "the right thing." Are you familiar with The First Rule of Holes?

    Seller has first right to who they sell to which is fine I understand he's not comfortable.
