1 million dollar knife, seriously?

Post by Sharpnshinyknives » Tue Sep 15, 2020 11:24 am

Saw this knife this morning on EBay. I’m guessing the seller knows absolutely nothing about knives, Frost Cutlery, or Seki Japan. I have bought and sold the fixed blade dagger version of this knife a few times, not the Frost version but Wragg version. I didn’t ask enough for mine.

Has to be a mistake. It is only $28 for the postage, you would fly over and pick it up yourself if you paid that much. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bet you could low-ball him at half price and he'd take it! OH

He says the knife will increase in value. I should hit the buy it now based on that info.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

The seller shows a plastic knife stand in some of the pictures but said it is not included with the knife. I think that’s a real deal breaker.

Darn I didn't read the fine print. That is a deal breaker. Forget the Buy It Now then.

His wife told him to get rid of all that crap so he told her he put it on eBay but it just isn't selling. :lol: :lol:

That’s funny Jerry, I will have to remember that strategy in the future.
I saw that the stand wasn’t included, what a cheapskate. You’d think someone that can afford to buy this and resell it could throw the stand in for free.

EBay is kinda like going to the Arkansas State Fair - there’s no telling what you might see! :lol:
