    Time for my semi-regular soap box rant.

    I'm not trying to single anyone out, just making a general comment and sharing my personal opinion.

    While there's no rule for sellers prohibiting them from asking people to use Paypal Gift ( I REALLY wish there were), buyers should be aware of rule #8 in the Buyer's Section:

    Rather than asking the buyer to figure out a price (gift or +4% type of thing), just include everything in the asking price. Did you know that asking a buyer to explicitly cover the paypal fee is against the terms of service? I feel that abusing a service (PayPal) to make an extra buck goes against the integrity normally seen in Fiddleback land.

    Please see How To Put an End to the F&F and +% in the exchange. for some others' input on the subject.

    When buying knives, I'll typically pass on ones that ask for gift. Unless I really want it, then I'll figure out the fee and buy it as goods anyway. I'm not going to give up my rights, even though I trust you guys.

    CAN WE PLEASE CUT OUT THE FRIENDS AND FAMILY (GIFT) AND +% CRAP?

    I'll step off the soap box now.

    That hiking buddy is something else. I'm glad Phillip swooped on that or I would have been out of some money. Great score.

    I cried when I saw that I had missed that hiking buddy.

    It would be nice to see more with bone or stag.

    Abe,

    I was thinking the Nessmuk was going to be the "one" in your flea market post, then I saw the Bearcub. WOW

    Thanks Nathan. The Ironwood on the bear cub is mesmerizing.....will be sad to see that one go.

    Todd's Bushraptor is a literal steal. Great model that, to the best of my knowledge, we have not seen in the Friday lineup for a long time now.

    Rick's Nessmuk is the first of this pattern FYI. It was also made the first week Ken/Bamboo was employed by Andy. See here: http://www.bladeforums.com/threads/fiddleback-friday-10-4-13.1114502/

    Placement of maker's mark qualifies this one as "old school."

    Good deal.

    Hey Guys,
    Been a while since I have posted but that is what baby's will do to you hahaha. Still watching the forum some but trying to keep the BladeFeaver down. I am trying to post up some for sale but am having trouble with uploading the pictures like I did. Is anyone still using Photobucket or have you guys moved on to another site?
    Thanks for the help guys.

    Photobucket has gone to $h!t unless you have a $400 a year account. Either resizing the photos so you can use the forum upload or using another host like Flickr is the best bet.
