Nope, not just you. And I want to see the backspacer or stand-offs while looking straight down on the spine of the knife, and I also want a shot or two from underneath with the blade deployed, so I can see the lock arm articulated with the blade. Ideally, I'd also like to see the knife with blade deployed in the hand of an average-sized, North American male, but I recognize that one might add more logistical complications than it would be worth. But a shot with and inanimate object to help grasp size would be nice. And why not make the inanimate object shot extra helpful by using a glove sized to fit the hand of an average North American male?
I buy nearly all of my knives by walking into one of the two world-class knife shops that are within easy driving distance from my house, so even with comprehensive pics it's hard for me to commit to buying a knife that i haven't thoroughly manhandled.
Conversely, I sell knives regularly through a local news and classifieds website, which has no limit that I've ever found on the number of pics or total file size of all posted pics (though no individual pic may exceed 10 MB). When the knife I'm selling is a very well known model like, say, a Spyderco PM2, and it's NIB and completely unused, Ill get lazy and post maybe only three or four pics. For any piece less known and sought-after, I try to get 12 to 20 good, detailed, accurately colored pics. I have learned that the very best thing I can do to ensure a knife sells, and sells close to my asking price, is to have lots of pics. The opposite is also true: few pics and pics of poor quality will make otherwise nice knives languish and never sell. Humans need pics, descriptions are not enough.
