    When I joined this forum, I was mostly into folders and still am (mostly for ease of carry and such). However, as I began to go camping and hunting more, I found that I needed a good fixed blade. I played around with a few cheapies that didn't hold up well. But then I saw a thread for Busse. I fell in love with the look and the rave reviews. I was about to pull the trigger on a sales thread of LK. But then I read a review of him, and then another, and then another. Now with all of this going on, I am not sure who to trust in terms of price, service, etc. So i don't know if I will be looking at Busse again for a while. But I guess we will just see. I'm sure I will need another good blade, I just hope I can get a fair price and good service from whoever I buy it from.

    Sorry, but I think any input is helpful, Mr. Busse.

    The system is already in place to warn about the shady elements in the knife world.
    I always look people up in the GBU, even retailers.
    I do not care if you have 400 positives, you are as good as your worst deal IMHO:barf:

    People are jumping the shark dragging knifemakers into this really uncomplicated affair,
    Anyone can buy a knife and do as they please with it, there is no waiver involved...
    Bringing Hinderer, Busse, Lionsteel or any of the other businesses a BF "Dealer" purchases from into the matter
    Really just muddies the water on the issue at hand.
    In the end this is about one persons behavior:thumbdn:

    Do you not keep records? Surely you know what your potential liabilities are at any given moment. That would be step one of being "self-insured".

    Just go back look and see who you ripped off and give them back their money. Just think nobody has asked for you to return all the pay-pal over charges you collected. So you have that going for you.

    Reread my post slowly. My word is all I have and I will not tarnish it by conducting myself in the way you have.

    Going forward here, if your allowed to do so, you will need to prove to others that your are providing services you are paid for. Your word has been tarnished by your own actions, not mine. I have nothing to prove that hasn't already been brought into the light by your own actions.

    I also suggest your friend change account(s) info, so you cannot access it to purchase blades others refuse to sell to you. I won't drag this person into this but it was disclosed to me that you did indeed have access to an account, other than your own. Had I saved the communication, it surely would have locked both accounts.

    This will be my last post on this issue here. Clean up your mess or take it elsewhere before more solid proof is provided and your banned here.
    You ruined the Busse forum for many and are ruining this community all for your own personal gain.

    My feelings exactly.
    And Huang is exerting more damage to both every day he is allowed to stay.
    The "Big Pictures" of all Huangs actions are clearly beginning to focus.

    I have one name on my list...
    An honorable man, who after losing his mates and taking an unexploded RPG shell to the ribcage in combat during an ambush, came home to find himself in dire financial straites...
    A kindhearted HOG who was forced to put his entire knife collection up for sale in an attempt to save his home and pay his bills.
    A proud man in such severe physical pain so bad that he was on heavy pain medication (read: morphine) while trying to deal with his losses and raise cash from his knives...

    A good man whose desperate situation you took advantage of by severely lowballing him on Busse knives you knew you could flip for maximum profit all the while knowing that he needed as much money as he could get from them. You read that thread in the X, because you posted to it...

    ...before taking advantage of his bad situation. THIS is an example of that two-faced, predatory buying/selling BS that everybody is fed up with here, and what you did to Anthony still gets me pissed off every time I think about it.

    Although this happened almost a year ago and I have kept this to myself, I cannot forget how Anthony expressed the way he felt...how he was insulted by your offer on the group of knives chosen, yet so desperate that he felt he had really no choice but to accept, all the while so under the effects of the morphine and the physical pain that he was nearly incoherent... I know all about it from Anthony personally in a very long phone conversation from that night. :grumpy: I have kept quiet long enough...too long, actually. Shame on you.

    I have PM'd Claehill to ask him to contact Jerry with the details of your 'deal' :)barf:) with him, and I sincerely hope that he decides to.

    Enough is enough...

    Dan, I am no longer interested in the $11.80. Simply Man up, confront your wrong actions, and explain to the community how you intend to change for the best. If you are willing to be a grown up about this and all the other things the community complains about, I would be more than happy to put this behind us. I doubt you are willing, but I want you to know I am.

    I made my post because Jerry said that he only wanted to hear from people harmed by LK. I can't say that I have been harmed financially since we've never had a transaction, however, I have chosen to stop visiting the Busse sub-forum as a direct result of his activities and my interest in Busse Combat knives have also waned. With this result, I would suggest that Mr. Busse's own company has been harmed.

    I think that Mr. Busse needed to read this.

    I had a feeling we've only just seen a glimpse. Thanks Jaxx, more light needs cast on this shadow of a character.

    This story that Jaxx explained may not be the "hard evidence" Mr. Busse is looking for but to me it reveals LK's character once again and why
    he is a cancer to the BF community.

    Thanks for posting that Alex. While it doesn't surprise me at all, it certainly reinforces why I would never do business with this guy. Capitalism is one thing. Being a wolf in sheep's clothing is another. LK shouldn't be a member here regardless of what written rules he has or hasn't broken. I've seen better members and better men shown the door for "the good of the community".

    dericdesmond,

    If I were you I would make LK donate that $11.00 to a charity of your choice.
