I think some of the Kickstarter backers have discovered Dirty Dan's plan. He's hoping that if he stalls long enough, the backers will either lose interest, forget they ordered a knife or die of old age before the crooked SOB gets a knife to them. I can't believe so many of them are just silently waiting while Dirty Dan fails to deliver and goes silent for months at a time. The backer who just jumped ship and got a refund was very outspoken in the Kickstarter page comments. He had had ENOUGH of Crooked Koster's BS excuses. I'm going to miss his zingers directed at Koster, but I'm glad he poked the turd until he got his money back. It will be interesting to see if more of the backers abandon ship.Dan Koster has yet to ship another knife. However, he apparently refunded the money of one of his more vocal backers on Kickstarter. It appears that if you complain enough, possibly threaten legal action and post publicly, he will refund at least some of your money.
