Knives Sold By State / BladeHQ

Post by KLJ77 » Fri Sep 25, 2020 5:16 pm

BladeHQ has put together an interesting compilation of what knives they've sold to various states in 2020 and the knives that are most popular, along with what knife steel has sold the best. If all the major knife dealers / manufacturers would follow suit and compile something like this, it would really be an interesting topic. Of course, the knives they've compiled are modern day style knives.

So about 7/8s of the country is into balisong/butterfly knives? Here I thought for sure Virginia would be more into fruit knives. 🤭
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

I’m wondering if (or how) they would account for the thousands of cheap gaudy-colored made-in-China junk knives I see teenagers and early-twenties buyers lined up ogling at week-end flea markets?

Ken that's just on what they sold is my understanding but it's probably a good indicator of whats sold by everyone else as a whole.
Younger buddy was buying from China and reselling at flea markets, he said some of the flippers and such sold like hot cakes. ::shrug::

Most people that don't collect don't want to spend $20 or more on a knife. That's why the cheaper stuff sells but the cheap stuff is the start for lot's of us.
