Sold Out In Under 10 Seconds

The Northwoods Knife brand name originated in Gladstone, Michigan when a man named Dave Shirley adopted it as his knife company's name in 2004. Dave was well known for collaborating with popular knife companies to have knives made to his specifications for resale well before 2004 & beyond. KnivesShipFree bought Northwoods from Dave & has continued to team up with respected makers to produce knives marked with the Northwoods brand name.

I love that knife, but not a $500 love affair. ::mdm::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Here's number three to show up on eBay...all are the wood handle model (no blue camel bones...yet). The prices seem to be coming down; this seller has his listed for $399 with free shipping.

This is curious. This knife was listed for $425/OBO and after a few days it showed that it had sold for "Best offer accepted"

https://www.ebay.com/itm/185152131616?h ... 7675.l2557

Today, however, I see the exact same knife from the same seller (using the same photos) has been listed AGAIN for $425/OBO:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/185156336087?h ... R6icldShXw

It's the exact same knife, not a different one that the seller managed to get from KSF. So, I wonder what gives? ::shrug:: Buyer's remorse, perhaps...the buyer changed his mind after his offer was accepted? Or, maybe the buyer is just screwing with the seller because he's a Flipper (I've been tempted to do that myself a time or two, but decided it wasn't worth it to ruin my rating on eBay for non-payment.)

So if a guy landed one in the future and wanted cost plus a hard to find RR he probably wouldn't be considered a bad guy? ::doh::

I recently had a non-payer on one of my auctions. Turns out he was based in China with 8 transactions, 7 0f which were non-pays. I don't under stand why ebay would let someone like that hang around.

The first Blue Camel Bone Lookout Jack to appear on eBay and the Seller/Flipper (Slipper?) is asking "only" $599.00. Surely any knife collector here would agree that this is a reasonable mark-up :wink: BTW: This is just me being ironic...or is it sarcastic?...I can never remember which is worse. But, either way, I certainly hope I haven't offended anyone by exposing the "Invisible Hand" of Capitalism. (again, that's meant to be sarcastic). ::smirk::

I'd say you pegged it Q with buyers remorse or some clown screwing with the seller. After all, it is Fleabay! 8)

Another Blue Camel Bone Lookout is up for grabs on eBay.

$549.95/OBO

I wonder why these aren't selling as fast on the secondary/flipper market as they did during the initial release? ::shrug::
I mean, for such an (apparently) popular knife, you'd think price would not be an obstacle. ::hmm::

No denying it's a beautiful knife. ::tu::
Did you get yours from KSF or from a flipper? ::hmm::
Can't help but wonder if you would have still purchased one if you had to pay 3-4 times as much as it sold for on KSF? ::undecided::

Me neither. The only one I have was on close out because it was an extremely unpopular Moose pattern.
I'm the same and I prefer old pocket knives , in the uk GEC and Northwood go for silly money, and flipping happens here as well, I had a gec half whittler that I won on a Raffle a few years back , carried it a bit but then it just sat in a draw so I gave it to a friend , most slipjoint groups on FB are full of people showing GEC's & Northwoods , you can tell they dint actually carry them, shame really as there made to be used, or in there case put away as investments I suppose ::tu::
Paul,
