+1 Roman is definitely one of the good guys. OP has proven the same cannot be said of him.
Thank you Paul.
You know me for years. I am impressed with BF members, who posted in this thread. I cannot recall dealing with any of them. And certainly none of them knows me as well as you and still I have their support
Thank you again gentlemen.

I believe Roman should post Tulku's name and address in this thread until he comes to his senses and removes his information.
Frankly, for a minute I wanted to post his name. But decided that I shouldn't.

Never dealt with bh49, nor do I know him beyond what I see him post on the forum. That said, after reading through the particulars he's not the one I would avoid dealing with.

This is one of the best threads I've read in a long time. Op, thank you for starting it. We've all learned a lot about you. 🤦

Yet another gb&u thread where the OP's intention has the opposite impact. Thanks for outing yourself tulku. On the ignore list you go.

Why would "post count" here or anywhere else have anything to do with the honesty of a seller or buyer:confused:

That wouldn't even be something I would think about or consider..

*Note..my question has nothing to do with the buyer or seller in this thread..just a general type question.

Typically, you can look at a members post count and make a good assumption what brand of knife they are the most passionate about, the knowledge they have of the knife brand. In this case, I would have no issues buying a Spyderco from bh49. He wouldn't sell you a fake, one that was out of spec, and list flaws before selling.
I have no issues with folks that do mostly buying, selling or trading to contribute to this site, however, I have more confidence in buying from someone who is passionate about a particular brand.

Buyer is requesting an immediate refund without shipping the knife back first? You're the one everyone should be aware of, Tulku. Grow up.

With your demands, you could get your refund from the seller and keep the knife, and the seller would be out a knife and the money without any PayPal recourse. Get real.

Returns should always be done before any refunds given. That's how outlets do it and that's how it should be done. Except maybe amazon.

I've only been on the seller end of a deal like this, and it was my fault. Something I didn't notice. And the buyer still sent the knife back before I refunded the money. We split the shipping. OP is asking too much. He should send it back first and once it is received in the same condition It was sent in, then process refund.

I honestly don't know why some people even buy a second hand knife online. If you're looking for absolute perfection, you should be buying a brand new knife from a local dealer where you can inspect it. Throwing a fit about some fingerprints on the blade and blade play, that I'm sure is normal for that particular knife, is just silly. And then expecting the seller to refund your money without sending the knife back first is pretty irrational. If he issues the refund, there is no recourse for him whatsoever if you decide not to send the knife back or send back a different knife. I've made mistakes when selling before and let one slip by me that had some scratches, the buyer contacted me, I asked for pictures, he sent them. He then requested a refund and I told him he would need to send the knife back first. He did and I saw the scratches myself, so I refunded his money and reimbursed him for return shipping. We were both satisfied with the end result and I apologized for the inconvenience. Seems like the seller here was willing to do the same thing for you, but the knife in question probably isn't defective in any way, so I think you should cover the shipping cost both ways and apologize for wasting the sellers time. Just my 2 cents.

Because Roman has been around here and on spyderco forums for a long time. He is a good guy and would risk his rep over a dragonfly, or any other knife for that matter.

I was going to post this, although it also applies to new knives.

So OP comes here throwing a bitch fit, seller offers a refund after knife is returned, buyer insists he wants refund before he sends the knife back.....irrational.
He then leaves unwarranted negative FB and starts a PP dispute. The PP dispute will be handled exactly the same way as Roman's offer.....return the knife FIRST!!
What a complete waste of time and effort. OP......entitled much??
We have asked for pictures of this horribly mangled $50 knife.....haven't seen any. Wonder why?
IGNORE!!

New Year resolution: take deep breaths before post about anything on internet.

Favorite quote in thread goes to Roman. "The less I hear from you the better".

As someone who got a fake pm2 from someone on this forum, I advise one make sure you know who your dealing with. The savings is not worth the hassle. I get customs now so for me it was a learning experience I am grateful for. Demko would never send me a fake.

Typically, here on BF anyway, a high post count means you have been around a while. Typically the trash is drummed off the forum through one or more crap deals and an eventual ban. They either learn their lesson and conform to the etiquette of BF or they exit, stage right.

I feel bad for BH49 Everytime someone posts (and im not helping) because it perpetuates the title and implications of the OP. I wish someone could change the title.

OP, it sounds like you have little experience of Spyderco lockbacks. Almost all have a degree of 'lock rock' when pinching the blade against the stop. Also most of the sprints that have little corrosion resistance (Super Blue and HAP etc) come with a protective layer of oil on the blade.

Instead of being humble and asking the more experienced seller about these traits you went after him in a rather disgusting, ungentlemanly fashion.

I would not deal with you.

I agree, but the mods are also very keen on timing. Once the issue is resolved and everyone has been cleared--so to speak-- the title will be labeled properly.

Good idea. I just did. The OP lost interest in a hurry. Nothing to do now but wait for Spark to clean up the rating.
