To be honest, I was a lot happier before I got sucked into this whole SpecterMania. So far it’s been nothing but an incredible waste of time and there are too many other nice knives out there, Shiro to name one. Maybe it’s time to refocus.That was insanity! The first auction (3 hour duration) was very exciting as the price slowly rose. Once that one had ended at $7,000 (which both final bidders said was their limit, so it was a case of first to say the magic number) the price floor was set. The next two auctions (one hour each) jumped up in price very quickly. There was a moment of drama when it looked like one bidder in auction 2 jumped the price to $10,000 (before it was revealed they weren’t serious).
With no live sports, this was the most exciting weekend entertainment I’ve seen in a while.
Going into it I had this belief that an auction would give me a chance to finally get a Holt (unlike the 500+ person lotteries) but what I learned is that the mega fans value these knives at least 4x as much as I do.
More auctions next Sunday. Maybe we will hit the magical 5 figures...
Wait till the fad is over. Holt is overrated imo, pretty much made primarily for IG pictures(like gareth bull). The reality is most people will never use them, despite all the engineering they put into it.
I’m sure this is gonna make some butt hurt.
Maybe it’s a sign that I should put my unused V3 refined on the Exchange for the “bargain” price of 2K.
This is shocking I had no idea but I'm glad these things exist so I can show my fiancee. That way my Busse collection doesn't seem so crazy. What site do you all watch these auctions?
It’s mostly guys with Specters showing off, thinking they’re da man now. “See, look what I got!!”Thank you. I'll check it out.
Knives in general are a poor investment. Nobody will be searching to buy or collect these in the future. Not akin to the likes of Lake, Loveless, Bose, Moran etc. where the value has sustained or even increased over time. On the other hand, life is short and if you have the means and it gets you hard, knock yourself out!
