I don't know how many of you folks buy used knives from forums or auction sites, but I've picked up a few nice specimens this way while saving a good bit of $$. I've actually scored a few deals here & there, my best being a Spyderco Vrango. But... on occasion, I've either just missed a deal (spotted it after auction end) or saw one but hesitated a little too long--snapped up by someone else. For a while, I've been hunting after a Spyderco Spydiechef as an alternative to the Slysz Bowie (now unobtainable at a decent price), and I keep missing good deals. One guy nabbed one at $100 (about an hour after listing), and another scored one at $113 (less than 2 hours after listing)! Of course, there's always the risk of some hidden or undisclosed abuse, but if feedback score is excellent then a good deal can be had. What's a knife you were aiming to get but missed out on & still regret?
