I was using a cell phone at work. Crashed on me once, got it the second time.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

Anyone else hate seeing the price go up after they add sales tax??? Some sites still don't have that, so I cringe every time I order from one that does. Between the MAP changes and dealers charging sales tax, these knives are going to be getting out of reach for many next year.

They charged the wrong rate for Georgia as well. I going to abstain from BHQ sprints in the future, their online marketing is off-putting and the whole purchase lead-up was a pain.

The sticker shock still hits me too. It's already a close call for me. I try to buy from sites that don't charge sales tax to my state.

Yep, on sprints and distributor exclusives I get annoyed when I happen upon one at a dealer with sales tax. Do I get it while it is available, or do I risk not getting one while waiting for them to become available at a dealer without sales tax?? Seems trivial, but if you are trying to grab multiples of a $200 knife we are talking $30 in sales tax. I'd rather save that money and use for something else.

I hope they do a Serrated Edge DLC coated follow up run given the 5 min sell out. And maybe do a larger run!! And beef up their servers!! :D

Well, I won’t be doing business any longer with BladeHQ. If you do a sprint with a drop time make sure your servers can handle it. I had all my info saved and could not complete my order.

They said another run is all up to Spyderco, and not them. Please Spyderco do another run of the Dodo someone who handle the business, and do a few more so at least the die hard Spyderco fans can get one.

Nah, only $399.99 on eBay (yes, there is one already listed). Barely doubling your money! :rolleyes:

Legally they are required to. I know a couple that don't but I try to keep it on the down low so that they (the people who aren't doing it) don't get in trouble.
