GEC has about 20 dealers who sell out with every popular run. GEC does not need a wholesaler to sell their knives. It just adds unneeded expense.
Also there are a number of ebay sellers who always score multiples of every popular GEC or Northwoods release even when many of us cannot even access the website because of so much traffic.
Is there a connection between the GEC wholesaler and the ebay sellers who always have multiples to sell ?
Note: i have no business experience so perhaps there is a role for a wholesaler to sell GEC knives and someone here might take the time to post the explanation.
