    I'm not too tech savvy. My phone records video, but I wouldn't know the start of editing it or anything. No one wants to watch me chopping wood for a few hours.

    I submitted a review not realizing it will be screened for appropriateness before posting.

    This ought to be interesting........

    Forgive me @Expat.

    If nothing else, it's perfect for sandwiches. It's the cutter, the spreader, the spatula, and if you heat it up you can press it into a panini.

    Anyone know how this Amazon inventory thing works?

    Last week it said, "15 available" then it slowly dwindled down little by little until it said, "Available July 17", then a day later it said, "1 left". Now it reads, "15 Left".

    Did they already get a reorder in? Or does Amazon try to play tricks with you to get you to buy something by artificially saying that it's getting scarce, when in reality, there's a bunch left?

    I've heard the latter, but cannot prove it.

    They found a "guy" that had a bunch of them in China, so they restocked?

    When I bought my bootleg CL-1, it said 9 left. I wrote my review, and there were "3" left? Logged in today, and there were "15"? Hop Sing must be cranking the 51455's like it's his J-O-B!

    @Expat
    My very crude understanding of how there inventory works comes from a guy I know who works at one of their warehouses... Short version is that if you look at the page carefully Below the price where it states who it is "sold by". OR "fulfilled by" tells you if it is in a amazon warehouse or not. If you go down further it usually says something like (#) available from $###.## tells you how many sellers that product is linked to. Amazon tracks their warehouse inventory as well as is provided a inventory amount from outside sellers. It can be sold by Amazon & shipped by Amazon , Sold by other but "fulfilled" i.e. Shipped by Amazon or sold by other and shipped by other. May even be able to get a sold by Amazon but shipped by other. And this is where it goes beyond my understanding but it makes good business sense. Think eBay sellers fees but cents on the dollar for LOTS and Lots of products. IT all adds up! But back to your question the short short answer is that it all depends on who possesses the actual product and what inventory info is provided to Amazon.

    I'm bumping this back up because we have gotten word that Amazon sales are booming. Whatever you freaks are doing is working, so step it up. Tell all your freak friends to go leave a review as well. I'm not sure there's another product on Amazon that has been 100% reviewed solely by lunatics. I'm proud of that.

    At Expat® Knives, we have different metrics :)

    This is what makes us different from the other companies:

    "12 People Found this Review Helpful:

    It knocked up my wife but it cuts good"


    Really? 12 people found that helpful?


    There is far too much to unpack in those two little lines this late at night but it would keep a team of shrinks busy for a semester or two.

    Wow, just cruised by Amazon and the CL-1 just increased in price from $146 to $186! Capitalism at its best!

    Yeah, there's a simple explanation for that.

    I decided to upgrade the custom boat I have on order. Payments will be another $40 a month so I had to make some price adjustments.
