    Well it sounds worse than it is.

    I have my reference set of 3. One in A2, one in 3V and one in D3V all mint. Then the example in satin. 4. Also have the Butterscotch & acid wash one off. 5. Then 3 wood ones, all different. 8. Then the D3V with vintage micarta edge cut handles, love that one, so 9. Finally a user in D3V. So 10.

    But really I would like an 11th for the Shadetree scales I have, a 12th for a set of handles from Tony and a spare. But I’m not holding my breath.

    Just great, now everyone knows how to get one. As if there is some sort of CPK inventory glut laying around waiting for more people to try their luck. Please delete so we all have a better chance DUH! :rolleyes:

    Uhhhh. If you factor in Bob and I have been here for a long time, and what they sell for directly, it’s not that much.

    Nathan can delete it if he chooses so. He's been very quiet today so perhaps he's mulling things over in your favor ;)

    I think I need to set the record straight on one thing. The knives I collect have, to some degree, a more primary purpose than just sitting around. I tend to be a supplier, AT MY ORIGINAL COST, to (for instance) someone I know who I've found out needs a specific knife to complete a set of four - and I happen to have that specific knife - and trade or sell it to the person, so he/she can fill that important spot in the collection - and I make ZERO dollars doing it. There are regulars here who have been recipients - who may or may not want to acknowledge, and a couple of guys who I wouldn't ever deal with again. Don't expect me to jump up and down from requests. I may have alot of knives, but that is one of the purposes of having them - to supply that need to the extent I feel it's possible. This subforum is full of good people and some of us just like to help out here and there.

    Hope this offers a bit more clarity about a few of us who seem to hoard, lol.

    This response makes so much sense. Thank you for clarifying Bob! This place does have some good folks. That’s why I hang out here! Maybe we can be good enough friends in the future that you would sell me a knife to use!

    I'm one of those regulars who has so far done 2.5 deals with Bob and I will vouch for what he has stated upthread to be 100% correct in our dealings. Heck, one of those deals was worth like 10 x a regular transaction to me. So what's a 0.5 deal some may ask?! That's just for me to know and for those who don't know, to not know :D

    he must be the guy that orders 10 knives on the preorders all in the limited quantity micarta scales i'm guessing....this is a tough brand to be a part of....and with this thread the preorders are going to be filled in minutes. Glad all of you guys had your fun though, thats what its all about.....I will just be waiting in the back of the line...patiently o_O:D
