Selling through Retailers

    As some of you may already know, I'm trying out something new where I'm selling my Martell Knives through retailers instead of only through myself.

    This is being done to increase my exposure, bring in a more steady revenue stream, limit the amount of communication I do, be able to make more high end knives, and increase the volume of product being produced overall.

    The initial run is through HomeButcher.com

    They have 7 Martell knives for sale currently. All are priced at the lowest point possible, what would basically be sale prices here. If you're interested in one of my knives this is the least expensive and most expedient method to obtain them. By purchasing through a retailer you will be helping to grow my business and this will be greatly appreciated.

    I can already see the benefit to this method of sale so I'm encouraged to expand on it. In the future there will likely be more retailers carrying my knives.

    Thanks for your time,

    I think it's a great idea, Dave.

    No way -- that is awesome! They had a big customer day a week or two ago -- you just missed that extra exposure. But they seem to have a very broad customer base here.

    I know I was trying to get the knives down there before they had the Japanese smiths show up but I just couldn't do it. I'm hopeful that the exposure in their store will help sell a bit.
