You all may recall one of the Christmas presents I got two weeks back:
Well, thanks to Alert Reader Mark D, we learn the truth about “knifemaker” Ed Mehler (my emphasis):
Ed Mehler is a knife seller for Knives Ranch and that he had previously been told to stop representing himself as the maker of Knives Ranch knives he was selling (at least those with the Knives Ranch logo stamp on them).
Note that this dates back to 2014, which means this asshole is still in business.
Caveat emptor (let the buyer beware) — in my case, emptor morsus est (the buyer was bitten).
Oh well… at least I have the best-looking boxcutter in Texas.
