Why are people so judgmental?
Here is the deal. Someone posted on Reddit the other day about one of our high end knives. This is the Proelia Knife and I have taken it to several trade shows where the clientele knew and understood high end knives. It got very good reviews and we sold many of them at the Trade Show over the counter once people were able to actually feel the quality of the item.
We have sold over 200 of these and only had one issue from a guy in Canada who took it apart and had trouble putting it back together. He put the plates on backwards and then forced it to fit and we still replaced the knife for him. Like I said this is a very good knife that is at a very good price for the knife.
Then someone post on Reddit and ask what they think about the knife and not one person who gives feedback has even held the knife. The comments are comments about how they would not trust a website called Ninja Supply. WTH is that? You look at the name of a website and if the name has the word Ninja in it then you all of the sudden think that they are selling crap? How stupid is that. We have a ton of customers who are very happy with the product they have received from us. Sure we target the hobbyist and those that might not be able to afford an expensive Samurai Sword or other blade but there is a place in the market for us. Do not confuse good pricing with poor quality merchandise. We are based in the USA and are easy to find and contact if anyone has an issue. We know the manufacturers of the Proelia Knife and they were kind enough to let us show it on our site. Just because it is on a site called Ninja Supply does not mean it is a not a great knife and does not affect the quality of the knife. They do not make a cheaper one for us. If we started selling Gerber, Cold Steel, Kershaw or other knives on our site would you just assume they were no good because we take less margin so we can offer better prices?
All I ask the critiques is that if you want to say an item is not good then at least get the item and try it first. Then if in your opinion that item does not meet your standard of what a knife that cost $100 should be then go ahead and complain and post it for everyone to see. Just seems to me that to be critical of an item because of the name of the site is not very sincere or an honest assessment of the quality of the item.
Rant over. Hope everyone has a great day.
