While I've been lurking here for a while, I'm new at this buying and selling thing.

Can someone explain how this is done? Is it all honor based? I would like to participate (buying to start) is there a protocol?

Any advice is appreciated.


Hi there and welcome! Most of us started out by buying knives on the forums and then get around to selling some too! You can e-mail anybody that is selling on the forum and make offers on their knives. They will get back to you and often times a deal is struck. Unless they know you from past transactions, most of the guys will want you to send either a money order or paypal payment. When they receive the money they will ship your item to you. Take a look at my post dated today for a list of some of the people that are good to deall with and are honest. Good luck buying and selling, it's a lot of fun!!:D :D :D :D
Hi Sidewinder! Just jump in and make a deal, although you might keep it cheap at first. Look in G,B & U for lists of good and bad, and don't worry too much about folks, especially if they've been posting and selling for awhile.

I've bought three so far and haven't regretted it at all. Some very good deals to be had!
