     Some More Anniversary Stuff- Plus a Giveaway, and Ohio Meetup info!    
Well the time for Felinevet Tim's giveaway is here, but first I wanted to share with you all a little something Tim just posted in the forum.  For those of you that don't know, Tim goes a long way to support members, and adhere to the rules and requirements from Victorinox, including their acceptable dealer pricing.  Some dealers don't, and in attempt to help these dealers out, Tim will send them messages from time to time rather than have these dealer's lose out because Victorinox can suspend or revoke dealership privileges at any time.

This particular time, the response was quite amusing.  In Tim's own words:

Thought you folks might be interested in a recent interaction I had with an eBay seller. I think I mentioned that Victorinox is requiring that the Heritage Knife be sold at list and not discounted. This guy has listed them at discount.

I contacted him about his discounting and Victorinox' requirement. Here is his reply:

"Dear felinevet,

I think you might be an "Authorized" Douche Bag. Grow a sack and send me an email about your issue, then if I were to completely ignore you and call you names, you would have reason to go "report" me. I bought these f****** (he wrote it out but software here bleeped it) knives like everyone else. Did you send your little note to the other sellers who are auctioning their knives? What if they sell for less than 495? You are not even selling the knife, why complain. GFY.

- gabpro21"

Nice huh? I'm so pissed I just needed to vent.

p.s. I have reported to Victorinox with a simple request - take care of these idiots OR tell me discounting is ok so I can also. Probably won't get an answer.

I doubt gabpro21 will get any of my business in the future, not that I've ever dealt with him in the past.  Gabpro21, if you are a member here and want to contact me to tell your side of the story, reach me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
