What IS a craft worth?

What IS a craft worth?

So, some time ago I had a visitor to my page who felt that $60 was grossly overpriced for a blacksmith's knife and accompanying sheath.  I won't get into the petty personal attacks that were made, but his assertion was essentially that I should be able to turn out such a knife in 10 minutes, give it a fine finish, and sell it for $10. I knew this was nonsense from the start, but it's hard to shake off that brand of vindictive criticism from someone who claims to be knowledgeable about the subject.  I've checked and rechecked my pricing, and for these high carbon knives I'm pretty sure I'm cheating myself blind.  I've just now rechecked Etsy

That stuff sounds awesome!

What's his twitch?  What does he do on there?  Chances are, - nope, nevermind.  Found it.  Kanto?  Like, Pokemon stuff?

I still never update this site.  It's always been such a pain, and ever since that annoying number-sign carp it puts on everything I do, I Realize I have that many more reasons not to bother.

I send lots of people lots of e-mails containing My newer stuff, however.
Thank's for the Fav !
