    It's no big deal really. I do like it, but I think I'd like the FK better. I'm kinda partial to bigger blades! I'll hang on to this one as trade fodder for a FK!

    I do like some of the Survive knives, especially the 4.7 in cru forge v, but I'd rather trade for a FK first!

    After much contemplation, I've decided to let go of my unused EDC. Nathan and Jo have been amazing to me in the purchasing process of my knife. When it seemed like my new knife had a unremoved burr, Nathan took it back, removed the burr and retested the knife to make sure it meets all of his specs. He even sent $10 back with the knife to cover my shipping costs.

    Alas, I just don't find myself reaching for the knife on a everyday basis. That honor goes to my well-used Spyderco Sage 1 simply because it is easier to carry. The CPK EDC is the superior knife, far and away, however.

    Therefore, my unused CPK EDC is up for trade. Only caveat is is that I'd like to trade it for cryptocurrency or cryptoassets: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Monero, IoTA etc. Keep in mind I'll be looking to trade at a limit value that'll depend on current market prices and my own future projections.

    My EDC is:
    Scales: Black (but looks more like a dark green-ish black)
    Sheath: Vertical
    Condition: As new. Has been handled outside of sheath, but not used to cut anything (besides the initial deburring and testing by Nathan as mentioned above)

    It all depends on the currency and the current market conditions (as well as future projections).

    This trade would really only benefit someone who has been holding one of the aforementioned currencies for a while and could peel off a bit for the CPK EDC as a lower than market rate vs. USD. I wouldn't open up an account right now and buy Bitcoin, etc to trade with me. It wouldn't be worth it to you.

    If, however, you've been holding bitcoin(s) for over a year then your value has skyrocketed. My goal for the trade is to lock in some bitcoin, ethereum or litecoin at a lower-than-market value. It's not a huge loss for someone who has been holding for a while and wants a CPK EDC. It would be bad deal for anyone who buys any of the currencies right now (because prices are way too high).

    While I understand that it would be difficult based on what you are after... I believe you are required to list a price to sell here.

    Unless this would be considered trade rather than a sale. I don't know, this stuff is weird to me.

    You are indeed required to post a price.

    It is a bit unusual, but this is a buy, sell and trade thread, and I think it could be construed as being for trade for one or another "crypto currency", and as such it's a trade and doesn't need a price.

    I'd prefer to see it listed for sale and a price assigned to it. That would be more clear and less confusing. However, I think as it is, it meets the requirements for trade on BF.

    The "seller" might want to change his verbiage from "for sale" to "for trade". Otherwise it needs a price.

    I've made the change in my original post. Sorry for the confusion and the frustration.
