Oh im not butthurt by anymeans. just noticed it was strange how the blades came and went. Was different how past drops went. thanks for the explanation. does leave you in a place where you sit there and refresh a million times until blades sell to see if hes going to put up a particular blade youre looking for.They started by dropping about 400 blades, four styles. When there was just one 'style' left (about 50 of them), they dropped about 6 more styles of production blades. I think there between 500 and 800 blades dropped last night. All nice simple production knives.
They also added a Captcha generator to checkout. So while some claim there are no 'bots' there certainly have been sniperware and Shopify bots used to grab piles of blades at once. As soon as the captcha generator was added... lots of issues went away.
Next Friday, there will be a big 'customs' drop. Andy announced that last night. This was a production blade drop to help a lot of people get a first knife... get stuff out there and have a drop that lasts (well, so far, a day!)
As for the cerokote blades. I have one in tiger stripe and love it. I use it and could care if it was scratched up. It's a great working knife. And I have a 'tiger stripe' fetish. But lots don't. So they stay unsold a bit longer.
Acid etch fall under custom. And those I am sure are coming. Next Friday will see whether the captcha generator is working or not.
I'm just glad to see so many folks finally got first-time blades and could join the tribe, so to speak!
Ive done well. Ive got 3 blades the last month. 2 I keep on me at all times. a production crow scout and a shpos folder. both amazing blades. Just lookin for the disaster breacher to satisfy the collection for the time being.
Im glad hes worked out some of those issues with distributing the drops. They make amazing knives and hated to see people talking so much shit about them 100 percent due to other peoples greed. Buying in bulk to flip at ridiculous prices. Hopefully now his knives can get spread around a little more at the price he intended.
