Non Paid Membership Limitations on selling

Non-paid members are allowed to post a limit of 6 total items for sale or trade per year.

This includes knives and related knife supplies or services.


A Knifemaker or Gold Membership is just $20/year.

A Dealer/Service provider Membership is just $35/year.

A Forum of your own is just $100/year.


We want you to post your items for sale, trade or knife related services on KnifeDogs.com but there are limits to selling as a non-paid member.


Please read the requirements carefully so there are no hard feelings later.


Non-paid members will be allowed to post a forsale, or services offered message for a total of 6 times or less in a year. You can bump your post once.


We also understand a very few will take advantage of anything free so we have to put some specific restrictions in place. If you find the need to post more than 6 times a year, you will need to purchase a membership.


Some examples:

  • If you are part time knife maker and complete a knife a month to sell, we encourage you to post it here in the forsale forum.

  • If you are a dealer, you can post 6 knives for sale in a year at no cost to you.

  • In both cases, these can be all in one post or 6 different posts.

  • If you are a supplier of any kind, you also may post up to 6 times a year any knife related items for sale. Due to the nature of items like wood sales, there may be several pieces of wood in one posting and we understand that. In this case we will count posts, not pieces.

  • If you provide services to the industry, you are encouraged to post your available services notice in the appropriate forums up to 6 times a year.

  • Occasionally a knife maker has some extra material to sell. Good! Post it for sale but please understand this will be part of your 6 limit. It is our desire to have a very open forum for the sale and exchange of knives, supplies and services for all members including he non-paid member.

  • We believe these limitations will be a reasonable balance in resources on the system and fair to those that have paid for membership. We may need to adjust this policy as our experience develops.

Non Paid Membership Benefits

Every one is not expected or required to have a paid membership to KnifeDogs.com You are very welcome to browse the forums, exchange messages and join in the fun. Non-Paid users will see an adwords adbox in the first post of every message thread. If you don't want to see these banner ads consider buying a paid membership to help support the forum. Paid members do not see these banner ads. With that is should be understood that non-paid members will have reduced access and use to some of the forum functions (such as search, signature images, PM) and lower file space, picture limits, avatar, profile and other functions than paid membership. This is of course, all designed to encourage to buy a paid membership. This is a business driven forum and paid membership is part of the design. The thought process here is simple, if memberships are largely paid, more respect is given to the forum and it's members than would be given with a wide open, no charge forum.
