    This morning's roll call,
    [​IMG]

    Art requires talent, knock offs are someone attempting to profit from the work of others and therefore do not deserve the support. Simply my opinion..

    haha I have no reason to hide my opinion. It's not a knock against Atwood. Hell, I just bought one.

    I simply believe you can get the same functionality for a lot less money, and that knockoffs aren't inherently evil.

    But you don't buy an Atwood for its functionality. You buy it because it's beautiful.

    Put it back I buy Atwoods for the functionality. That is why if I do not find myself carrying one then I will trade it or sell it for one I think I might actually carrying and to use.
    And...you will get booted from both of those FB groups if you say that. Just FYI

    Was going to start a thread on this, but figured I'd mention here to see feedback. Not trying to take away from this thread though.

    Anywho, after missing so many sales from Atwood direct, I have been looking at ebay and noticed a lot of available Atwoods, that are obviously marked up. Do people just buy direct from him and then sell on there to make money?? That's messed up that Atwood is exclusive and people are trying to profit off of it instead of giving others the chance to buy direct who actually care about the beauty and functionality of the tools.

    Thoughts?

    I agree, it's unfortunate that there are those who seize the opportunity to profit off of his tools but it is essentially getting one at wholesale cost when buying direct from Peter. I personally won't buy on the secondary market unless someone is just trying to sell to get their money back within reason. Slight markup is one thing but baying 3-4x the original price is crazy to me. Peter even has a "reselling" section on his website with guidelines on reselling. He is completely aware of what goes on but once the sales are over people are free to do with them what they wish. Obviously some people are content with paying crazy markups for tools they want.

    I would say that you can observe similar situation not only with Peter Atwood products but with a lot of other manufacturers like : Vox knives (Snail etc.), Hinderer knives....and a lot of other products...IMHO this is a normal market situation: high demand with low supply results in high market price.
