Too much fun. First off, I'm not Gene. If you read my previous post, I have just recently met him. We live close. I had no idea of his past short comings but after I bought a couple of knives from him, we began talking about his past. He told me about allot of the things you guys are talking about. Though I've only known him a short time, he seems very genuine on making things right to those he has wronged. I base my judgment on that. The knives that I have from "Nocturnal" are bad ass. I have cut multiple blanks for him in my shop, so I know he is working. I'm sorry that you guys have had bad experiences in the past, but all I know is how he is trying to make up for it. So hold a grudge if you must, but my personal experiences have been great!
I only know him as gene. And I'm not a supplier. I just happen to have a 4k fiber laser at my shop and have burned some blanks for him from time to time. He brings in his own material and CAD drawings and I burn them. And again, I only know what he tells me and he has been genuine with me (I hope)So, your not just a customer, but also a supplier that works with "gene" / Jeff Carte / Ivan / Nocturnal. Got it.
BTW, does Jeff / Ivan / whoeverheiscallinghimselfnow use the name "gene" in public now? According to "gene" / Jeff Carte / Ivan, "gene" was just an alias that he hid behind to obscure the Karg / Jeff Carte connection with Nocturnal.
Finally, I am not sure how holding a thief accountable is holding a grudge. During the height of Nocturnal he never once tried to make restitution to the people he stole from while doing business as Karg. He actually defrauded MORE people as Nocturnal. I really don't buy that "he is trying to make up for it." I find it much more likely that he is trying to start the same scam for the third time.
I have a video and pics of the knife blanks. Not sure how to upload pics on here. It is a 2017 Amada 4k fiber laser. I will say that the 3V he brought in was .313 thick and it was tough to cut. Even before heat treat. I think it ran at 7 inches which is slow. How can I upload pics?Sounds very interesting. I'd love to see a photo of your shop laser.
I can't believe it's the same dude that I know.Jeff Carte, otherwise known as "The Sun", Karg Knives, etc.
Otherwise known as the guy who stole my Strider SmF when I sent it to him for a new scale...
Otherwise known as complete scum who can rot in the deepest level of hell.
