Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I mean I guess I don't understand the negativity, you have over 20 orders on the books. That seems pretty legit to me. Seems like folks like your knives and are puthing their name on the list. It always sucks to have people not respond or cancel but stuff happens. You still have the materials make the knives and list them or keep supplies on hand for next similar knife on the list. I'll be honest I post less because it seems like every other week your talking about closing up shop or not renewing the forum etc. I guess I read that and get in the mind set it's already over. Like I said in the thread you closed on the minimalist series. Have faith in your product and forum. We do. Scroll through a lot of the makers forums and they haven't had posts in weeks. Your getting daily posts. Not as many as you want but people are posting and continuing to visit this forum and adding their name to your order list. Not trying to be harsh or negative but I feel it needs to be said. You have a very loyal group of fans and friends. Things go in ups and downs. Yes posts could be going up as the holidays are over but people are still recovering from holiday spending. Paying credit card bills or just plain recovering from their spending. All that said you have to do what' best for you and your family. If that' closing shop or the forums that's what you gotta do. But I have noticed things are always better when I stay positive instead of allowing the negatives to get to me.
