Shard may be available for purchase!
« on: March 03, 2009, 07:36:03 PM »
As I mentioned in the Artifact thread, Gerber is strongly considering making the Shard available online for purchase after receiving a number of email requests.

They told me a month ago that it would be available "very soon" for a "limited time", but there is no sign of it yet.

So if any of you guys are interested in getting a Shard, put a little more pressure on Gerber and send an email to sales@gerbergear.com asking where you can buy a Shard.

The emails are the only reason they were considering it and it only takes a few seconds to send.

 :cheers:

Looks like a neat tool....I'd buy one.

Thank you for contacting Gerber Blades.  The Shard was a show specific item to help introduce the Artifact.  It was designed to be a "promotional giveaway" only to help introduce a new product called the "Artifact".

Not too positive sounding though :(

Perhaps it would be better if we arranged a group-buy of sorts and then the powers that be (reads "Def") arranged for politely requested a limited run of Shards for MT.org forumites (even better, with the MT.org logo on them)... :think:

I've sent one too. It'll be interesting to see if they've started cut and pasting a standard answer yet if nothing else :D

Weird. That is the standard answer they were giving before, but after a few emails they changed their tune.

Looks like they changed their mind at some point. I think they need another round of pestering...  >:D :D :D

Email sent  :salute: Also asked them if they are doing anything about the main blade on the newer MP600 line, where the opening hole does not match the cut outs in the handle :cheers:

Surely the two of you could bridge that gap and come to an amicable understanding.......as long as the bridge isn't a Suspension bridge. 8)

Don't worry. That's what happened last time too. They sent a bunch of stock replies for a few days and then temporarily changed their mind after a while.

I am not saying that it is 100%, but we have a pretty good shot.  :tu:
