Largest Online Auctioneer of Knives Cuts Over 1000 Jobs

Like it or not, eBay is a major player when it comes to knives. I know, they don’t make knives, or own them, but they do play what has become an important role in brokering/auctioning knives.

In fact, I would go as far to say, eBay transacts more knife sales on any given day than any other single source. Take for example, go search “knife” and 62,950 auctions show up. Search “pocket knife” and you get 10,008 auctions.

Perry Miller, the NKCA President said here on the CNJ Knife Show, “It (eBay) is the largest knife show in the world and it is open 24/7- seven days a week.”

In its early days many folks didn’t like it. Today folks have accepted it and adapted, and most now capitalize on it.

eBay cuts 10% of its workforce

“SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — EBay Inc. said Monday that it plans to cut its global workforce by about 1,000 full-time employees and several hundred other temporary workers in an effort to reduce costs. ”
