    Earlier tonight I posted up that I will sell all my balis and knives, and flashlights...

    I'm still going for it...

    But...

    A few good devils said not all of them...

    So...Which Bali do you think I should keep as a collectors piece...One I should keep and flip it like I stole it...And one to donate to a GAW or JD raffle...

    ETA...Doh...and I just deleted the list that I just completed...I'll type up a new one tomorrow...Total Fail...:unintroduced:

    Im not hear to tell a man his business, but I dont see how a collection purge is a good thing your a younger guy with a strong collection and seemingly no financial distress.

    Handled correctly your collection should only increase in its net worth, and I would hang onto the nice things you have and not dump them until there's an emergency which requires the cash immediately, or you want to cash them out to play with the money in your retirement years.


    maybe I missed another thread with relevant information, but I would say hold onto what you have and perhaps even grab up some more. This seems really rash, without further information.

    If you do move on and you do let your AB prototype go, please contact me.


    best-

    Step back for the ledge...

    You will regret a full purge I promise you. Sleep on it for 1 month and then re-assess. IMO.

    As your lawyer I think you should pull over, step back from the drastic decisions, drink "this", take two of "these", and let me drive.

    My advice
    Take your girlfriend / wife or whatever and buy her a Big Mac and a pack of cigarettes ( chicks love Big Macs and smokes)

    Then put her on a plane somewhere
    That she wants to go

    Big Mac 4$
    Smokes 9$
    Plane ticket 400$

    You should only have to sell one knife to achieve this goal

    All parties are happy and you keep your balisongs

    Sorry to hear about your current situation my friend. You have always been and will always be, a man of class.
    Do whatever you need for your soul. The rest is just stuff.
    Remember that you will always have friends here, no matter what you need.:devilwag:

    Hard to say when the intended goal is unknown.
    Try this, break down the collection in orders of price, rarity, and usefullness. Write down the results as if it's a poll and pick out the top 3, and let the rest go for what the market will bear.

    I missed the story, but it sounds to me like it's a girlfriend that's pressuring you to sell off your balis. Is that right?

    If collecting and flipping is a hobby you're really passionate about, don't do it. I could understand a S.O. not wanting to see knives out in the open if you guys have a place together, but if there's an ultimatum then that's not healthy.

    If your collection makes you happy then hang on to it. Compromise somehow and maybe just lock them up?

    I admittedly don't know much about the back story leading up to wanting to sell your balisongs but I can definitely relate. I've recently come to terms with selling a prized possession and am ready to move on with my life. I am talking about my prized custom drumkit, not a knife.... lets not get too crazy now.

    But I can relate to wanting to move on with life.

    I just realized this statement didn't lead up to anything, more or less just tossing my .2¢ in.

    I can understand cutting back, but a full purge seems extreme. Maybe ease into it, see what's comfortable.

    Since your PM box is full, I couldn't contact you to politely give you some advice about at least one of the bali's you have :manganr:

    And no, I'm not soliciting an offer for something outside of the sales area...

    Dude, I don't know what the fuck is going on but reconsider what you plan on doing. Considering the one you just got, you might want to take a deep breath and reflect a bit.
