This is the first i have heard that reservations for this knife had begun so i am miles behind Greg in the line up of people wanting this knife.
Are the CK SFO's as prone to flipping as say the Northwoods or regular run GEC knives ?
Could there be flippers who have figured out how to snag 'all' the reservations ? Can bots be used to slow down a website and thus effectively block others from access until all reservations have been claimed ?
The competition for the SFO's and now the reservations for SFO's is as heated as if you were selling crack cocaine for a fraction of the usual price.
It does show the insanity of addiction.

Roland I don't know the answers to your questions but it is very frustrating on these reserves. I almost think you can do better at dealers that don't do reserves on these regular runs but you have to be vigilant.

Guess I was lucky. I was sharpening a chainsaw and got a text. Got online and was able to score. Site was slow but my 4g phone got through.

I quit playing that game a long time ago... Best thing I ever did.

Saw the email and app notification 6 hours after it came out.

Didn't even bother logging into CK. ::shrug::

Being as these are just regular run everybody will be carrying these right? How has this pattern been in the past? I’m assuming this is a really popular pattern.
