My question is simple and my complaint valid, why are we having such an overly hard time getting desirable knives?
This trend in 2019 is not something I am willing to support any longer. My last 5 purchases of knives have gone to Buck and Cold Steel. If things continue as they have I do not see this trend changing.
Just one voice, where one speaks up, many remain silent yet do the same.
Do what you must. You think that Sal and HIS company's employees will speed up projects and processes just because you and some other impatient individuals (I could've used many other nouns here) put such posts here? Seriously?
Grow up, or...
I do not think anything will change, nor did I write anything about speeding up projects and processes. I can however see that I failed to adequately describe what it is I am certain others besides myself are objecting to.
Since the latest sprint run is the Shaman in Cruwear and is selling out as soon as it is in stock according to reports here on this site and the whole of 2019 has gone this way, by and large, I thought it understood, what I will explain next is for the sake of clarity.
In 2019 we have had some very nice sprint run items released by Spyderco for example the 20CV PM2 by DLT Trading.
There was a mad rush to get it due to earlier sprint runs of other sprint run knives, with other companies selling out so swiftly.
Very few were produced all were sold at a fair price by DLT. Many here on this forum tried and failed to obtain one.
I obtained one, two in fact and gifted the second one to someone I found worthy, and yes I have done this in the past, with forum members here, on this site whom I felt significantly contributed to the education of all.
Rest assured you are not in the pipeline for consideration.
At any rate I am not in favor of this manner of marketing and have voted with my wallet on the last few sprint runs and have lost the desire to buy other dribbled out production knives like the smock and spydiechief second CQI Incarnation because the spirit for the hobby has grown damp, the enthusiasm for the hobby with Spyderco waning due to the above described marketing conditions.
I figure let the people who are really wanting something so bad to go through the hassle of attempting to buy on a maxed out server do so rather to add to the stress for something I just do not need that badly.
As for your impotent remark about growing up or... well that is very uncivilized of you, please do try to display better manners, if you cannot, then I ask you to refrain from personably addressing and attacking me, good day to you sir or madam whatever the case may be.
