The point is, this has been a flourishing outdoor gear community that has been hijacked by the defunct knife community. I have not opted for any knife community; I opted for solely the outdoor gear option. Drop daily mailouts for this option now consist almost entirely of knives, none of which can even be purchased by international members (as they are considered weapons), electronic gear, yet more headphones or ear phones, and if we are lucky, one or perhaps two items that might be considered as outdoor gear.
I also object to the selling of what might be considered as weapons on Drop. Surely there is enough violence in the world without further contributing to it?
I like knives and watches. I haven't bought any from here. I wouldn't gamble trying to import a knife anymore, but I would buy a watch if it was good. This site generally reminds me of "reader's digest"; most of what is here is really not good. It's like stuff that nobody else would buy. I have heard that drop used to be much better. There are some gems though; this knife is one of them. I did buy a very good light weight waterproof jacket - the rab kinetic. Highly recommend it. Spent a whole day in our high country while it was raining the whole time. This site is what it is. There are other options and often better deals. I still look here, but I'm mostly disappointed.
Yes, it seems to have deteriorated after Danny left - he knew what he was doing - though there was a good run of various Altra shoes earlier in the year.
