    Bad True North Knives, lies, and hostility

    OP, have you publicly voiced your dissatisfaction with FedEx somewhere else other than here in a thread about your dissatisfaction with TNK? Your knowledge of how FedEx refunds work suggests that you have familiarity with FedEx delivery timeframe failures. Are you going to "learn your lesson"...

    Bad True North Knives, lies, and hostility

    OP, let's not overlook that Neil told you before you got the knife that if it was not received by you in the timeframe you wanted, you could simply refuse the package and everything would be fine. To me, that could be Neil saying to himself that he is not going to file a claim with FedEx if the...

    Does anyone know what happened to the site or if it is coming back? I know that it says it's "coming soon", but it's been that way for a few months now.

    Spyderco Slysz Bowie Question

    LOL, well the seller is nothing if not optimistic. That particular auction has more watchers than any other for the Knifejoy SB. I guess people just love to watch a crash & burn.

    A fool and his money are soon parted.

    Two questions please… 1. Have you or the prior owner disassembled the Neutron or tightened/loosened the pivot screw? 2. Why no PP G&S? It just gives the buyer recourse if there is an issue.

    Spyderco 2021 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

    I am like you, but may be even a little tighter than 15% above retail. Personally, I don't buy for the sake of having, but for using so it means nothing to me to have all the Mules or just a few. There also is no knife in the world that I must have. I have paid a lot for a very rare knife that I...

    Custom Handle Wanted- Spyderco Fish Hunter

    I will second Robert Erickson. Phillip Patton is another exceptional knife maker here on BFC. He re-handled a custom kitchen knife by another maker for me and I was very happy with his work.

    Maxamet Care?

    I use my pocket knives for food all the time just because it gives me an excuse to use my knife. That said, I only wipe them down with mineral oil, and that's only when they need it due to prolonged moisture exposure. Mineral oil doesn't go rancid, is digestible in the event some gets on your...

    Red flags or just being paranoid

    I think most new sellers are simply looking to sell with no intent of having anything less than a great transaction with an ultimately happy buyer. Whether they're a new or seasoned member, however, I just personally prefer to deal with folks who are here because of their affinity for all things...

    Bad Paypal 1099

    Getting knocked into the next tax bracket and the concern you express is not a legitimate worry. For example, if you are $1,000 into the next higher tax bracket, technically only that last $1,000 is taxed at the higher rate. Your marginal tax rate only applies to that amount that causes you to...

    SOLD Pacific Salt 2 PE LC200N

    SOLD Looking to move this Pac Salt 2 in PE with LC200N. It has been carried a few times, but the only wear on it is at the front edge of the clip, which I tried to show in the second pic. Sorry, but no box with this. $95 shipped CONUS with payment by PP G&S.

    Victorinox 10 inch Breaking Knife—Early Impressions

    To the OP or anyone who has one of these, to what do you attribute the knife's great cutting ability? Thin edge, harder steel, geometry, something else? I've always heard that Victorinox steel can take a good edge if it is the stock is thin, but that it is also soft so I am very surprised to...
