Buying Barges in bulk.

I received a new monthly catalog and found that Blue Ridge had lowered the cost on the Kershaw Barge to 15.75 for my price. My first guess was that the factory was phasing them out.

I did a "price and availability" call to an inside sales woman and found they had +250 Barges. Now I think they "over-bought."

Here's my dilemma. I cannot polish 100 knives at once, but I could see where I might have some clout at a dozen or two and get a little lower price.

But first I want to see if there's some interest. Could I have some feedback?

After seeing your skills first hand on my kitchen knives I’m in. Are you saying that you will sharpen them before mailing to us? In that case sign me up.

you are probably right, in that they maybe over bought.

I'd like to confirm a dozen. I think I can do that many at one time and not go crazier, but also I might have enough clout to get the price even lower.

Lots of "ifs" here, but I want to hear if there's interest. For example, shipping to you might cost more than the knife.

Chico, I would like to have one of your knives for a retirement gift for one of my buddies, so I will definitely take one. Thanks!


Well, I thought of another gift I could be giving, so add one more for me - that's TWO, with the full Chico work up. Happy to wait my turn and provide the appropriate remuneration! Just let me know.


Thanks again.
