Shop wear -vent

A buddy relayed he was contacted by the buyer who had bought a knife from a dealer and was asked if the knife could be freshened up a bit. When the knife arrived he commented that it looked like it had seen significant use rather than just "shop wear".

I've encountered "shop wear" as well where knives on consignment get played with so they get scratched up. This becomes more of an issue with titanium that has been anodized yet similar with 416 bolsters.

It is frustrating how some customers handle knives yet this happens at shows where they are not very careful in their handling. Have seen customers flick the knife open to have it fly out of their hands onto the floor as well. (That's another gripe discussion.)
