Would say the swap page, but that's about as much of a joke as keeping an alert thread...an alert thread.
Is this page known to be unreliable or questionable for sellers and buyers?
No, tkospy just has his panties in a bunch about an unrelated topic.
There's never been a case of someone getting ripped off there. Not one.
The only people allowed to post there are established members here. If someone asks to join and I see they signed up to this forum five weeks ago and have three posts, I don't add them. It isn't open to anyone I don't manually approve - you can't even view it.
It's low traffic, but high trust. I bought my current favorite EDC there (C95 Manix), my daughters last knife, sold a Native Chief and Waterway, etc. Prices tend to be lower than other outlets because it's enthusiasts swapping their favorite brand rather than trying to maximize profit.
It's one more tool in the secondary market toolbox and fills a niche, just like ebay also has its place. I would never suggest someone rely only on the swap, but it's worth keeping eyes on.
