Here we go again folks.

Once again this week there will be a Thursday Night Knife Auction at 8 PM Eastern time in the Chat Room.

Anyone who wishes to sell knives there is asked to post pictures, descriptions, and minimum bid required here on this thread prior to the auction.

All sellers are strongly encouraged to post pictures of the items they will be selling on this thread. This allows the buyers to simply click on this thread to view a photo of the item up for bids and also greatly helps in moving the pace of the auction forward.

Some folks have expressed concerns that the auctons are running too long and tend to be confusing. For that reason the following guidelines will be put into place;

During the time an item is being auctioned, only the seller and bidders should make posts. When others not directly involved post during that time it tends to throw the auction off course and also tends to add confusion and unnecessary delay. If you desire to contact someone during the auction, please do so by using the Private Message function.

Sellers should not prolong the auction unnecessarily. If an item has not received a bid increase in 30 to 40 seconds, it is time to begin calling for last bids as in........going once..........going twice.............With so many items to sell it is not fair to the other sellers or bidders to drag out the sale of an item. If you fail to adhere to this, the person guiding the auction will "gently" remind you. ::smirk::

Click here to enter the chat room

Hope to see a lot of you there.

Phil
_______________________________________________________________________________
Notes added by Muskrat Man:

Auction schedule will follow the order of posts and knives in this thread for instance if the order of posts in this thread goes:
MrBlister
Muskrat Man
Thingsforsell

then Mr B will sell his knives first, muskrat second, and TFS third.
Each seller will sell two knives before the next seller in line has a turn to sell two of his knives. This rotation will continue until all the sellers who have posted knives (or other items) for sale in advance on this thread have sold the items they pre-posted.

Once the sellers who have pre-posted their items here have sold out the auction will be opened to anyone else wishing to sell. During this portion of the sale, the two knife limit before yielding the floor to the next seller will remain in force. This allows all sellers a more fair and equal opportunity.

The saturday following the auctions this thread will be cleared and the date changed so next weeks items can be listed by thier sellers in advance.

In order to minimize mahem, cease confusion, and keep the bus from running off the road, one of my lovely assistants will be posting the order of sale immediately prior to the beginning of the auction. Any last second posts of items for sale made after the order of sale is posted shall wait until the conclusion of the auction before selling. Sellers are encouraged to post the items they plan to sell at least a few hours prior to the start of the auction.
As has been the longstanding practice, each seller shall sell TWO (and only two) items before the other sellers in line have a turn.

Phil

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,

We will be having a trial run of the Thursday Night Auction utilizing the chat program now in place here at AAPK on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. EASTERN TIME. If you wish to sell a knife or two, I strongly urge you to post photos and a description along with the minimum opening bid here on this thread well in advance of the auction. That will allow potential buyers to see what you're selling and hopefully it will stimulate more bids from more bidders.

The lovely and talented "Junebug" has graciously offered his services to help facilitate the auction. If you need help posting a link to the knife you're selling Junebug will gladly assist you.

I do caution both bidders and sellers that the chat program now in use is slower than the previous one and that it will no doubt take a bit longer to sell a knife under the current system.

Okay - I'm adding 2 knives so you chat room thiev... I mean fellas have some grist to chew - and hope I can spend some time with y'all tonite so's I can heckle Mr Stinkbug.

Up for auction are two Canal Street Cutlery Two Blade Moon Pie Trappers both from 2008 - one is Royal Blue Shetland Bone and the other is Royal Green Shetland Bone. Both just happen to be # 54 of 100 - sporting 440C Polished Mark Side Blades - 4⅛" Full Length - Nickel Silver Bolsters - Stainless Steel Linings - in authentic green Canal Street Box with papers and velveteen sheath - never been used - but they've been fingered (and wiped) - original factory edge on blades - not original box however.

I don't know what happened to the original boxes ... okay ... I do know what happened to the original boxes ... they ran into, but I don't want to rat out my good friend, the dagnabbit heavy fingered dude in Lake Norman who can't keep his Canal Street boxes straight or his fingers off the darned boxes (that's a clue by the way), but they were replaced by authentic Canal Street boxes.

Min. Bid for each is $40 plus $2.99 for shipping
all bids of $50 and up - get free shipping
Original MSRP Value was $89.95
Now Rare Collectibles - with estimated value of $110 each

Well, come on, give. How did the auction work out. Were y'all able to muddle through it without addling your brain cage? Is it going to work out?
