For years Survive! Knives has sold knives based on absurdly inaccurate delivery estimates and promises of future "changes" that never seem to happened. Numerous people have reported having difficulty contacting S!K, and at times it took S!K months and multiple requests to process refunds for items that were years past their estimated delivery dates. Instead of using the money from the "Starter Program" in the way they said they would (invest in the business to grow manufacturing capacity, reduce lead times and increase availability) they moved the business multiple times, made no significant increase to manufacturing capacity and purchased an abandoned hotel in a the middle of nowhere... I could go on about the owner's background and S!K's blaming their problems on suppliers, materials, past partners, PayPal, banks, fires, vacations, excessive demand, family obligations, trolls, etc., but you probably get the idea. This has been going on for years... Yesterday, Spark closed their forum. I think it is a great move. However, I am curious why he did it now. Did something happened with S!K that precipitated him closing their forum? I looked at their Instagram page (they have the comments disabled) and the Facebook fan page, and neither has any new or relevant info. So, I am posting here and asking the forum if they know anything.
