Interesting thread.. I’ll say I’m very grateful Spyderco is doing this sale online as it hasn’t been feasible for me to go in the past. I’m really stoked at the chance to participate. Thanks!!
One suggestion: if at all possible, I think it would go a long way to making everything run smoother if, when we put an item in our carts during the sale, it’s reserved for “x” amount of time (5 minutes, 20 minutes, however long). I think the most frustrating potential from the sale is getting an item in your cart and it being gone before we’re able to checkout.
Really excited for this, and thanks again!!
Very good point. Can't imagine how wishy washy people get once they realize they have $2000 worth of knives in their cart!
I'm sorry to have said something about us forum members getting first dibs. I was kind of joking, and also a bit of wishful thinking. Didn't think it would take off like that and cause some confrontation. None of us have any idea what to expect, but it's also safe to say...any of us on this forum, likely already have more than enough Spyderco knives to keep us happy as it is! There are far worse, 1st world problems for us to actually worry about these days besides some discounted knives. Don't forget that.
I was joking as well. As for discovering they have $2000 worth of knives in their cart, as a vetern of several in-person sales, you are way, way short. Based on my own basket, I'd say the average shopper has at least $5000 worth tossed in their basket to sort through. I usually have to cut back on my first pass to get down to a grand.
