I know you would anyways but I might as well give you permission.

I was home alone and bored on Friday night and decided to watch "The knife show". I'm sure many of you can see where this is going already. I bought one of their huge 200 and some odd piece deals and felt regret almost immediately. Then, I informed the girlfriend of my purchased and she yelled at me. Not for spending the money mind you, but for buying cheap junk instead of living by my own motto of quality before quantity any day. My regret was compounded even more last night when I went to the local gun shop to purchase a few things and ended up looking at a few knives from a local maker. That is what a knife is supposed to feel like, solid, strong and dependable. This knife was $400 but I could have been really close to buying it if I hadn't bought the ccn junk.

Well, just a few minutes ago I sent them an email to cancel my order and hopefully it goes through before they send anything out. I'll take the hit on shipping for my idiocy if that's what they ask but never again. I hate when I have to learn things the hard way.

So not to berate you, but what was the thought process?

I ask this seriously.

Surely, something about this appealed to you, so what was it? You knew the knives were crap, so what did you see or hear or think that made it seem like a good idea?

Mostly what gets me looking at things like this is just the sheer quantity. I start thinking things like, they have to be worth it for that price and no knife is that bad. What really made me make the call was one item in particular that they added. It was a set of kitchen knives that were one piece of steel including the handles. I start thinking that nobody makes a cheap one piece kitchen knife and became blinded by my own stupidity. A fool and his money are soon parted comes to mind when I think of the lastest purchase.

Also, I already have a knife from them that somebody gave me a long time ago. I barely use it so it stays fairly sharp but if I start using it a lot I have to sharpen it quite often. I didn't think of that at the time and am now looking at a couple benchmade's and the ones from the local maker.

The Infomerical Tracter Beam sucked you right in.

Were you also drinking prior/during the broadcast??

Sorry bro, you got sucked right in and they got to your wallet. It has happened to all of us.

In fact, you should start a thread of the dumbest sh*t someone has bought and was instantly ashamed of their purchase. It would be epic...

In what section should I start this thread?

I was drinking beforehand but I don't like to blame the beer, people start saying bad things like "maybe you shouldn't drink so much".
I was sitting there with my one lonely pocket knife and decided it needed about 200 friends.

Default If you end up stuck with 'em

Get yourself a table at the local flea market, sell 'em dirt cheap and make some of your money back.
