    Hi guys, im new here and am just getting into knives.

    I have been browsing through the sales category on a number of different forums (such as this one) looking to pick up some used knives.

    Im also a bit of a wristwatch guy and in the world of watches there are sites such as https://www.watchrecon.com and www.watchpatrol.net/ that will compile all of the private sales forums onto a single page for you and add filters.

    Does this kind of think exist for the knife world or do you have to search for everything?

    Would save me a tone of time right now. Thanks for helping a noob out.

    Not that I'm aware of. And I'm not really sure that such a thing would work that well here anyway.

    The Bladeforums exchange isn't a place where any member of the public just comes in and just clicks a button to buy a knife. It's a voluntary exchange between members many with a paid membership. Members' records and reputations count. Discussion occurs, and because it's between members it tends to be informed discussion. I personally wouldn't want it to become like Amazon or Ebay. A site like you're talking about would probably encourage people who have no interest in the community to come here, join up just to buy a knife, and then never come back.

    Are you talking about custom knives, or all knives? If it's all knives, it seems like it would be a next to impossible thing to do anyway.

    Good luck finding what you're looking for!
