    Exchange Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING

    The following rules apply to the Exchange forum and any sub forum(s).

    If you do not agree to the following rules, do NOT post anything in here.
    Failing to follow the letter or spirit of the rules could result in you being permanently banned.

    Note: Each individual section of the Exchange has it's own set of rules specific to that section. You MUST read those rules as well as the ones below. They can be found in a sticky thread at the top of each section.


    1. This area is for individuals to list items that they would like to sell, trade or buy. It is NOT an area for commercial businesses to advertise their products. Do not advertise or link to eBay sales, the Exchange is for individuals to directly list items they have for sale or trade.

    2. Absolutely no illegal items can be listed here. This is absolute and final, any attempt to do so will result in the post being stored offline, the user permanently banned and, if appropriate, law enforcement officials advised.

    Transactions involving knives classified as prohibited by state and/or commonwealth laws, will require the seller and buyer to have the appropriate licence/ permit/ exemption as required by their home state.
    The moderators may ask the seller of prohibited knives, via PM, to provide proof of their permit. Failure to provide evidence will result in the post being stored offline, the user permanently banned and, if appropriate, law enforcement officials advised.

    It is the sellers responsibility to ensure that he/she does not sell any item to a minor, prohibited person or a person not authorised to own the item in the buyers home state.

    It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that they check their local state laws, before agreeing to purchase an item. Do not waste the seller’s time buying a knife which he/she cannot legally sell you.

    3. This area is to be used ONLY for listing items and brief discussion of items. This is not an auction site and haggling over prices on the forum is not permitted, such things must be discussed in private. Once a deal has been agreed upon the forum will accept NO other posts or communications about the deal. It is entirely between the two parties and all further discussion must be taken off line. Think of the forum, in this respect, as like a newspaper ad. You place your ad then conduct the deal elsewhere. No exceptions, beware the ban.

    4. Discussion in Exchange posts must be limited to directly discussing the item in question, only if you are interested in buying it. Arguing about the item, or conditions of sale or prices or derailing the thread in any way is not permitted. If you believe the sale is illegal in some way or violates forum rules you should PM a mod or admin. If you happen to think the price is too high that does NOT violate forum rules, you must not comment on it in their thread. Your solution is not to buy it. The Exchange area is NOT for general chit chat, the ONLY comments permitted are those DIRECTLY related to the sale. Anything else will be deleted and the poster warned. Repeat offenders will incur infractions, collect enough of those and you will be automatically banned permanently. This will be strictly enforced. If you see an inappropriate post your only options are to ignore it or, preferably, hit the Report Post button. ANY insults or abuse will incur a 50 point non expiring infraction, two of those is an automatic ban.

    5.Thread/Knife Sales Limit

    a. Any member can have no more than six active threads in any exchange forum at any one time.
    (Active threads do not include threads marked SPF, Sold or Withdrawn)

    b. Any member can have no more than six items in any thread in the exchange forums.

    This allows up to 36 knives to be listed in any exchange forum at any one time.

    6. All posts will be conducted in a respectful manner.

    7. The forum is in no way whatsoever responsible for anything listed here or any deals made. Anything inappropriate will be deleted.

    8. No fake, falsely labelled items, or those produced in such a way as to try and deliberately mislead buyers can be listed for sale or trade on this forum. While it may be a grey area as to what constitutes a fake or unacceptable item, the forum owner will make the final determination. Anyone posting such items will be asked to remove them. Failure to do so will result in the posts being deleted and the poster possibly incurring a ban.

    9. Only Forum Supporters (Gold) or above can sell in the Exchange sub forums. The exception to this is the "Wanted" and "Freebie Zone" sections, anyone can create a new thread in those areas. . Anyone can offer to buy from any area.

    10. To sell in the Exchange you MUST update your profile to include your location. Country and/or state is all that's required.

    11. Any item listed for sale or trade in the Exchange MUST have an accurate and honest description.
    The sale ad MUST also include a price for the item(s) and MUST have at least one photo or video of the actual item for sale.
    The trade ad MUST have at least one photo or video of the actual item(s) for trade, in addition to this an indication of the value attached to each item must be included.
    The photo or video MUST be visible in the sale/trade ad, not linked to open a new window.
    The photo or video of the knife must be the actual item for sale or trade and depict the knife's current condition.
    A video of some random reviewer showing a similar knife is not acceptable.
    A link to a picture on a manufacturers site or online store or the like is not acceptable, it must be of the actual item you are selling/trading.
    Any additional photos posted by the seller/trader, do not have to comply with the above rules but if they are not of the actual sale/trade item it should be clearly indicated

    Any ads not complying fully with this rule will be deleted. Buyers are advised to always exercise due caution when buying anything.

    12. Exchange thread prefixes.
    When an exchange item is no longer available you must change the thread prefix to reflect the current status of the exchange item.

    Depending on the exchange forum, the prefixes are "For Sale", "Withdrawn", "SPF", "Sold". The purpose of these prefixes is to let potential buyers know the status of the item without having to read the whole thread. Items listed as "Withdrawn" or "Sold" will be removed to the exchange archive ASAP by the moderators.

    As the seller, it is your responsibility to keep the prefix of your sale threads up to date. Threads marked SPF may be moved to the Archives after a month of no updates. Any For Sale thread will be considered "dead" after 3 months of no activity and moved to Archives.

    Instructions for changing exchange thread prefixes are in the sticky post at the start of each of the exchange forums

    13. Specific rules for the Wanted section: Anyone can place an ad in the Wanted section. If you have something that somebody is asking for you must respond with a PM, NOT in the thread. ALL price and other negotiations must be done offline. If you find the item you are looking for you must change the prefix of your ad to indicate you have it and are no longer looking. Note: The "Wanted Forum" is for "Items - wanted for purchase" not "Purchasers - wanted for item".

    14. Specific rules for the Trade section: This area is for trades or swaps ONLY. No discussion of sales is permitted, all negotiations must be done off line. Read the sticky thread at the top of section before posting. All other Exchange rules apply.

    15. All other general forum rules apply.

    BEFORE POSTING AN EXCHANGE ITEM, PLEASE READ THE EXCHANGE FORUM SPECIFIC RULES IN THE STICKY POST AT THE TOP OF EACH EXCHANGE FORUM FOR ADDITIONAL RULES THAT APPLY TO THAT PARTICULAR FORUM
