    Yeah, I'd bug them and get my money back!
    They have no place in my collection. I sold off my GSO's and never looked back.

    Let's not pretend you weren't a hard core survive defender, okay?

    No such pretention. My posts are all there for all to see and I have made over 1000 past Survive! related posts. You don't seem to get past them and frankly speaking, your apparent grudge is purely on you. I have made outreaches not for absolution but to admit that I was wrong because when you reach my ripe ol' age, you can admit when and when you were wrong, accept it and warn others how one was duped by their wolf-in-sheep clothing mantra. So no, there is no attempt to wash over or erase past history.

    Blade Forums is a large enough place for both of us to never interact and to stick to our own lanes. Beyond this, I don't see any reason as to why we should even bother with one another. Can you do that?

    Poor heat treat, along with unreasonable customer service wait times, may cause some enthusiastic collectors to stop drinking the Survive! Kool aid.

    I was the ATL bladeshow last year and the Millet section was empty. I talked to someone that knows about Delta 3V and they said S. got in over their heads trying to go big league. I knew that they are a sham from that day.

    I was told that the 7/7 would be done by Dec 2016 then they had 2nds sales every month for the year of 2017 and then all of the sudden your back to we are working on the knives and put our best into it. 4 years later now they are not done with the 7/7. Many of the people said they saw no issues with their 2nds and some say they sold the 1st as seconds then started over on the 7/7 because of no delivery date. They showed pictures of all the 7/7 in 2016 saying all the checks were done too. They just continue to find ways to rip people off.

    I have and they said they would give me my money back after waiting 3 years and I did because 4 years now from the order they still are years away from making it. Hell remember all the comments about the new SK line that was going to ship in 8 months then they went to after they are done with the GSO orders. Each and every person who has a order needs to call the ID AG office and the FTC and BBB. Theses guys are making 6 figures on the interest alone from the orders they took in. After all these years even if they refunded 100% they would still have enough to live on each year.

    I have asked about this in the CPK 'ask nathan a question' thread.

    Never even acknowledged that I asked anything. Immediately answers questions about dogs, music, and cars tho.

    I'd say he didn't want to be caught up in the drama of another company, it's hard enough to run your own. But Nathan and CPK are some of the most decent business people I've ever dealt with. 3 companies that I know of use the delta 3v probably a way of splitting the cost on perfecting the heat treat .

    No I didn't acknowledge it. And if I were to walk into a room where you'd just farted I wouldn't acknowledge that either I'd ignore it and leave, to do otherwise would be rude.


    ^ the question in question...

    Is the Delta protocol proprietary to our shop. No. This is common knowledge. Dan , Guy and I worked on it. When someone asks a question they could answer for themselves with very little effort I don't always make the effort to answer it. I'm not Google. Can you just send Peter's a bunch of psf27 and say McDelta that please? On multiple levels that question doesn't even make sense.

    I'm sorry if you came into my forum and to ask poorly researched and poorly conceptualized questions and didn't get the response you felt entitled to.

    I don't owe you anything. Leave me alone and don't drag me into this clusterfuck, I have nothing to do with this.

    I find a bit of comfort that for whatever reason I already had A.Linoge on ignore.

    So whats the status on Survive! and a permanent Hall of shame? FYI, they are once again stretching out their Ponzi Scam with four different new "preorders". And now, they are using Bladeforum's name in their recent "Preorder"-Prepurchase ponzi scam sales pitches...
    https://tinyurl.com/y5vz7k7p
    "The SURVIVE! GSO-8 came into existence because of Bladeforums member demand and design input"

    .
    Whatever happened to "we won't take new preorders until completing our backlog". They still have knives 4 years and growing prepaid backlog. This whole ponzi scam term "preorder" is as laughably stupid as the Mafia calling extortion money an "Insurance policy". You don't freaking "preorder", you prepay... for something that doesn't even exist. For what? For a ledger slot that goes on an always growing ponzi backlog list now four years and growing. Outrageous.
    .
    If this doesn't deserve a permanent hall of shame, I don't know what the hell does.

    So they were banned and no longer allowed to promote their scam here. Instead of just taking the lump, they are continuing to try to use this community's legitimacy to sell their scam? I'll bet @Spark won't be happy his good name is being used to scam people without his consent.

    Survive’s use of “BladeForums” in their ad may be a shot this community. Just speculating...

    Um WTF. I 100% do not give them permission to use BladeForums.com to promote their products in any way, shape or form. I don't think this is covered under Fair Use either....

    Looks like they cleverly (cunningly?) used "Bladeforums member demands" not Bladeforums itself. Really not liking these people
