I'm guessing a lot of people gave up after the initial debacle. I believe the Manix 2/20CV sold out in like 6 minutes?? I'd expect the PM2 to be even quicker, especially if dropped at the original time.
I could be wrong but I'm not sure you're remembering correctly. I thought the first run went pretty fast too. Maybe not this fast. I remember being a happy I secured one before they sold out.

Though this was a bit of a debacle, DLT is hands down one of the best to order from. Very quick! This is the 4th knife, and also my Sharpmaker I've ordered from them and I've received all my previous orders to NY within 2-3 days max.
Thank you for the response, and to be clear, I certainly did not intend to scold or lecture you on your plans, I hope I didn't come across as an @$$ At any rate I hope you are able to get two knives AND do whatever you want with them, because we DO live in a free market and thank God for that. I have a second run BBS M390 PM2, so I'm not really in the market for the DLT red anyway lol.Sober_Survival wrote: ↑Wed Jul 17, 2019 9:45 amThank you. I understand what you are saying. I certainly wasn't trying to 'brag' about anything. Just stating my plans, I really didn't put much thought into it because people talk about buying / selling all the time. -Chris.JonLeBlanc wrote: ↑Wed Jul 17, 2019 8:25 amI'm sure you're not the only person who will buy two, but given how fast these will sell out and the very real possibility that someone who wants one will not be able to snag one because others are buying two with the intention of selling one for a profit, I would also not suggest broadcasting that plan on a forum like this. Of course, the free market tends to neutralize any moral arguments about this subject (in other words, you are of course free to sell if others are willing to buy), but telling is forum about your intent to do so might breed a certain amount of resentment that this forum tries hard to avoid. Just my two cents, subject to inflation lol.Sober_Survival wrote: ↑Wed Jul 17, 2019 8:14 am$40?TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Wed Jul 17, 2019 6:17 am
So you can have 2 and then make like $40 on the other one in the future? While someone that really wants one that they would actually use, misses out on the drop by a few minutes and can't get one, or would have to pay a substantially inflated price on the secondary market...not cool man, not cool. Not something I'd be bragging about on here.
My bad, I forgot that I am the only person that buys 2...
You do realize that the purpose of offering an item in very limited quantities is to greatly increase their collectibility and or value, right?
