buy them with the intent of flipping them, but I don't like it no matter how you
spin it. Especially because of this forum.
If it was a product that you had no emotional ties to the company, other buyers
and what-not it would be one thing, but so many of us post on here and it would
be like stabbing a friend in the back.
We wait and wait for months and months for that special knife to arrive and then
can't get one. Knowing that people have lapped up multiple knives, just to hop up
the price and re-sale is........ Not sure what word to use here, so I'll just end, you
get the point.
I agree with this. Buying several of something at what was intended to be the "customer" price just to charge more for it when there are no more available I think is just shi**y and greedy. That means you don't care about anyone except yourself. I don't think it qualifies you as an ******* but it's not a characteristic to be proud of. That's just my opinion. If OTOH you get a knife at a very low price and resell it for a price that is close to the "customer" price that is good for you, a lucky break, etc. I mean getting a knife in good condition at a flea market or yard sale where the people don't know the value of it and sell it for less than it's original "customer" price.
Again, that's just how I feel personally. I have friends that may do that and I don't consider them bad people. I may be willing to do things they consider shi**y and not feel bad about it.
