    MidnightSociety has difficulty properly rating a knife for sale. When I called him on it and requested a refund of my money and even volunteered to ship it back on my dime, he will only do a partial refund as if it's my fault that he improperly described the knife. There's some serious integrity issues going on.

    Unless you stuck the thing in a garbage disposal how do you justify 'partial refund'?

    So MS is disputing drummer's story it seems. Drummer what you got to support your claims?

    Yes, in the hour or so between opening the box and messaging you i took the knife outside to my driveway and dropped it multiple times on the handles and blade tang. Then i scraped the "pretty sharp" edge on the pavement because i love dull knives. Then i dropped the blade tip into the pavement to blunt the tip. Once done, I soaked the blade in salt water to make sure to have rust spots. That makes a lot of sense.

    Ive got hundreds of nothing but positive transactions going back for over a decade on this forum, arfcom, m4carbine, and ebay. I pride myself in very accurate descriptions of the items that i sell. I only ask for the same.

    Ill post pics later.

    9/10 and "barely flipped", definitely not what drummers pictures show. Hickory is right, original photos are pretty blurry. But I think you can see the blunted tip. Obvious imperfections should be spelled out in the for sale thread. Especially with crappy photos.

    If I sold something that someone wasn't happy with, id have no issue giving them a refund. No harm no foul. Does a reason really even matter? Why not keep the peace?

    Just my 2 cents.

    So MS, looks like there were some rust spots on that blade even in your crappy sales thread pics. At a minimum it was not likely a 9/10. Your story is looking shaky. What did you want to do here?

    I say his sales privileges be revoked until this is settled.

    Never mind.

    Current sales thread is locked.

    This needs to be sorted out without name calling.

    MS has not been on the site since Wednesday evening according to the forum software. Of course I imagine a creative genius could get around that. Regardless it would be nice were he to decide to make this right. Of course were I the buyer, I would be starting to look to paypal or my credit card to resolve this at this point. Assuming that worked, MS would likely suffer a much more significant loss than would he by resolving it more directly.

    I filed a complaint with Paypal when it was obvious that he wasn't going to give me a refund. We will see...theres no guarantees with them.

    Worst case, ill accurately list it on here for what its actually worth imo, which is about half what i paid.
