    Im not sure how a cautionary post about dealing with DDR is drama.

    I do however find Darrels posts on the subject of this build on both instagram and facebook to be on the dramatic side.

    Crowdfunding is all the rage these days.

    Mike Bond doesnt need the money, Anso doesnt need the money yet they all go out and create kickstarters for gadgets and people step up to pay. I suspect it is more for the order management but the prepayment is a nice little bonus.

    This goat rodeo however has none of that, frankly as shady as kickstarter is - it would add an air of legitimacy to this project.

    Good luck to all that gave him money - you're about to learn a lesson.

    It can only go 1 of 2 ways.

    looks like he posted some 3d renderings as well as a 3d print mock up.... Coming along faster than expected he says....

    I just cannot get on board with this. Not only due to his reputation but also due to how they are going about this. Just screams fishy...

    Ive rolled the dice on this one, can anyone catch me up on the past I'm very new to the animosity towards ddr. In the normal knife circles he's decently respected from what I've seen.

    I can honestly say aside form very small subsections where some DDR fans can become the majority, I don't even know how that is possible.

    The only good thing I have heard about him is how long he has been making knives.

    His Customer Service has been shit-tier for years, the quality of his knives have been shitty for years.

    He has been lying to customers for years.

    Really, dude is one of the many shit-stains on the underwear of the knife community as a whole.

    Snody, Balzano, and Will Moon even have their own followings, and if you follow their pages and such, but all of them have actually straight up robbed people.

    Just sayin, just cause someone has some fans, doesn't make them a sack of shit.


    All of the recent drama has revolved around using pictures of other people's products (Cold Steel Arc Angel, which while designed by him base don an old custom of his is his entire marketing point, used a picture of Hom's Tempest to promote him using bushings. made funnier because it is a running joke in the bali community about that time he lied about putting bushings into balis and charged for bushings but only stacked some washers into the handles), because of the invasive marketing tactics to try to push a false sense of popularity of his products, and taking payments on a knife that did not have even so much as a render with nothing more than a promise your knife should be done in one to two years. icing on the cake is blocking every single person who has even the slightest criticism (which is mostly to protect him image that everyone loves him and his work). Meanwhile this project is only happening because of over-inflasted prices on the CS Arc Angel on the secondary market.


    Essentially, Shitbag 101.

    I paid $30 for a AAM raffle spot in the DDR FB page and won. So I'm getting one; I'm hopeful that it will be good.

    They posted some shots of the blades and a video of a proto on IG and facebook. Supposedly the one in the video was one of many protos, because a few things were different from the original cad pics. They plan to have some ready by Blade and to start shipping them in June.
