    No needed. Talk about being hostile. And no, I'm not planning to resale the AA. As i have couple of them currently and putting more money to get them modded for personal preference because I absolutely love them rather than keeping them stock for the resale value. As any of the AA right now is being sale at 700-1000. Steve saw how many of them went for 800 and 900 in 1 day on fb. I had hope for the aa-michael based on the gemini, and it is significantly cheaper to gamble 100something bucks that is paypal protected up until 2018, rather than paying 1k for one.

    well i hope this time he uses bushings that go all the way through the blade :2tonheavy: fixing those "Bushing" driven Raven knifes for people was a PITA
    yea ie appears funny that there is a high pressure push to get people to say yes instead of believing enough in you design &market place to just build them ,then sell them. i don't know i'm going back to work now gotta do my "Knifemaker Shift"

    I need to recalculate the value of my balisong collection. . . .
    I'd also like to take this moment to thank Taoist for selling a great AA with box for only 300 a few years back !

    I was bidding on the DDR mid tech that he made that lead to the Cold Steel AA. I stopped bidding and $600 and I wanted that knife. Know I can get if without any sticky finger mark ups.
    I like to hold on to my knifes and this is one i have wanted for a while. best of luck all !

    All the shit behind him aside, the way he's selling this thing is what really scared me off.

    He sounds like a fucking infomercial. But not a good one like slap chop. More shake-weighty. :general:

    As a very seasoned flipper on a budget, an AA is most definately a need eventually, but i would much rather throw $700 second hand than to buy one for $500 from DDR. After hearing all about his rep and work, i would not risk my money with him nor wait so long for something that has a potential to be hit or miss.

    Step away for four years,......and yuup,..Ddr is still a huge slimy douche. I ran across the cold steel pics in an unrelated search, and got totally stoked thinking the AA was getting resurrected. Then I came here to see this shit show..........ima go kick a dog now

    I wonder if the blade will stick out of the handle... I know it's supposed to be channel but i believe he can find a way.

    He's already working on that. If you read his FB page, his big design question is: What does everyone think about lengthening the blade from 4.3563 to 4.5
    Well, that makes it clear that he hasn't even made a proto yet. And had no fucking clue what the dimensions should be.

    Isn't that pretty much like saying: I'm bringing back the AA, but it's going to be different--eg: exactly the same, but different. And I don't know WTF I'm doing, so can you guys that are paying for WTF ever I'm going to make please tell me what I should be doing...

    Yeah, the knife hasn't even begun to be built and it's already a shit storm. No thanks. The way he's pushing for these deposits it's like he's about to lose his house or something, seems very desperate and borderline begging for those deposits, not normal behavior... It doesn't seem very solid and there is something off-putting about the approach, ehhhhh, nahhh.....
