    How exactly does this work? I go to the fixed blade for sale thread at 3 on Friday and look for the Carothers post? Will you have Field Knives listed tomorrow? Thank you

    Pretty much: YES! 3:00 PM is Eastern time zone, so adjust accordingly if in a different time zone.

    The sales are very very briskly paced which some folks who are new to CPK may find confusing / frustrating at first. Since you are seeking an FK2 (the original Field Knife aka FK1 has long been retired and no longer ion production by CPK) just post a claim to the FK2 no matter where your post falls in the totem pole of all the posts for tomorrows sale.

    This is the caveat emptor: you snooze, you lose.

    You really need to know that 3:00 is not 3:00:01... the art is in refreshing exactly on time.

    And it's not just timing. There's a significant element of luck involved as the forum lags from the load. You can time the refresh 'just right' and run right into the server lag from everyone else simultaneously trying.

    Depends on what you wanted. If you were after a DEK, just count posts. If you wanted something else, just be patient & they'll get to you (if you aren't contacted by tuesday, you probably missed)
