New guy here. First post. Happy to be here. The first time I ran across this "on-the-makers-site" high price thing was with Spyderco. Outrageous prices on the site! I scratched my head and thought I'll just go to my favorite…"
"Well, you are probably right, but I looked at a 110 today at the local hardware store, their retail price for a NIB 110 was $49.99, ebay has new 110's for $35-$45, they are currently going for $39.99 at SMKW, and that "MSRP" price…"
