30% is the "going rate" for purveyors. Personally, I've never understood, nor figured out how to deal with this.... the knifemaker always comes out on the loosing end. That being said, I set my own rules when it comes to purveyors..... my rules are they get a 10% discount for a single knife, and 20% for 2 or more. All other costs, such as shipping, photos, etc. is on them. If they don't want to play by my rules, we don't do business.

There are a couple of purveyors out there who should be avoided at all costs..... they are predators... seeking to lock new or young makers into "exclusive" situations, which is just another way of saying getting robbed.
