That was the caption to this knife. I just didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
I equally love the ads for knives worn to a toothpick that state “blade has been sharpened”
Some folks have creative definitions of decent treatment of their tools.
Ridiculous description, but nice knife with a lot of life left in it.
What makes me crazy is the multiply self-contradictory descriptions where they just try to pile in every possible key-word.
"Men's women's children's casual formal sport professional toy stainless steel sterling silver new vintage...
My personal favorite on knife auctions is the use of "not case" as a keyword
Reminds me of a listing I once saw on the 'auction site', for a 'vintage' Case Sod Buster. Description laid it on thick about the apparent antique nature of the piece. The deep, heavy pitting on the blade made it look very old-timey, but the post-2000 tang stamp on the CV blade gave it all away. Knife was less than 10 years old at that time, and looked like it'd been buried in the mud for almost all of it.
It's fun to scroll through the big auction site and see some of ridiculous descriptions. People will try anything to potentially increase the sale price. Good wholesome entertainment
I find it funny when they try to specify a use in it's description.
Don't tell me it's a survival camping hunting knife, or a farm construction carpentry DIY hammer.
If I buy it I'll decide what it's for.
Perhaps he told the truth, and the original owner was never abused?
Maybe the original owner never abused it, but his kid(s) and/or wife, and or wives, and/or girlfriend and/or girlfriends, (Who knows? He may have had more than one wife and girlfriend simultaneously) and/or whoever he loaned it to did?
That poor knife was obviously abused by someone or something.
My favorite is, "Condition is used. Photo is description." The photo is so bad that it could be a knife, bigfoot, or Jupiter.
"didn't know whether to laugh or cry"
I don't know how I couldn't laugh at that one.
I have seen Rough Riders touted as "rare vintage old timey knife"
Knife.. and under it, a free piece of beef jerky too? Win win!
Looks like a red headed step child honestly
laugh till you cry
I recently received this in the mail after buying a “ never used never carried” 66’ Schrade 301.
It was never carried, just boxed in pocket lint.
And even if the photo is good...how am I going to determine whether it has blade play from a photo?
