GROUP BUYS.

on the british blades knife making forum they have group buys for items the members need,the idea being ,get enough people intrested and a bulk order can be made and subsequently a huge saving!could we do the same? can members suggest any ideas?

heres a few:

fire flints

folding saws

diamond sharpeners
Lloyd

I need a diamond sharpener if thathelps, also fancy a new knife, but at the sort of prices you would pay, Fishy.
fish

what kind of knife lloyd?

as for diamond sharpeners do you need the pen steel type or the flatstone type?
Lloyd

A flatstone diamond sharpener would be handy, as would a new sheath knife for general purpose work including skinning / paunching etc. Blade length something like 3 to 4 inches max, with a good edge, but strong blade.
Pilsbury

I might be interested in a fire flint

i recon we could get a few members together for the diamond sharpeners,the knives  we would need a few members too,the best buy for knives would be bass pro in the states!

   



some thing like this?

Size: 4" x 1"
Fine stone with interrupted surface, micro tool sharpening pad and fishing hook groove.
Comes with black Nylon pouch.
Ideal for small pocket and lock knives.

Who knows. But most of the stuff is made in the same sweat shops anyway.
