The UK Knife guys are going bonkers

As a follow-up on the news of eBay banning all knife sales on their UK and Ireland sites, the Brits are beside themselves.

I am following a few of the threads over at BritishBlades forum (mostly custom knife owners) and they are are not happy campers right now. 

 

“This (ban) is obviously going to impact all of us in various ways, I sell quite a few on there, and regularly buy knives I want for myself from American dealers which will also be impossible.
We all know its ridiculous, but there’s probably naff all we can do other than find another auction site to trade through.
So ladies and gents:
a) buy what you have your eye on now cause you won’t be able to for much longer
b) can anyone suggest some other good auction sites to use.”

While this post by John is on the calmer side of all the buzz, it summarizes their situation pretty well. So much for eBay sales there for US sellers, including custom makers, right at the time every sale is important to keep the knife biz healthy.
