Some of you who have been around for a while will remember my... Problems, shall we say with my WS Dartmoor.

All was satisfactorily resolved.

However, a new chapter in the story has been opened with this


That's the knife I returned..... It was supposed to have been destroyed during their testing....

Oh it is, definately.

304/500 but I recognised it without even checking that.
I have a replacement (also stamped 304) which annoys the nerd in me a touch.

More to the point though, it looks very much as though it still has the dangerously defective handle attatched.

One answer could be was never sent away didn't WS go belly up receintly? maybe was auctioned off if factory goods were sold off? interesting if that is the case the buyer was warned about its history no one left to complain too now is there.

I was just about to say that. Do you have any of the correspondence you have had with WS, send copies of that too.

One thought just struck me maybe seller is ex WS employee?
over on BB it's been said that he's a dealer in notts and a lot of WS stuff passes through his hands.

I'm a bit surprised that the replacement was marked 304 anyway. it's clear that it wasn't really the 304th knife to be made. I'm a bit shocked that the dangerously faulty knife has made it's way back into the market though.
I would hope the the respectable dealer will remove it and maybe I can go have a look at it when I go back to notts

I kinda wondered at the time, but I was rather insistent upon having a numbered blade as a replacement. A "percieved value" thing.

Yep, I actually know the guy's company although I honestly can't remember if I've dealt with him.

I'm quite willing to believe that he aquired it in good faith.

I'm peeved that I was lied to by WS.
I'm peeved that there's another blade with "my" number.
I'm concerned that there's a dangerous blade for sale, and it is dangerous.

Great Pebble, could you please explain to those that did not see or hear about this knife what went wrong with the handle ? Or maybe direct me to a link where I could read about it in the beginning ? Thank you.......by the way, good looking knife.
