Where to Sell Used Wusthof Knives
You’ve made a considerable investment in your Wusthof knives. Therefore, getting the best price for your used Wusthof knives is important. Holding a yard sale will only attract bargain hunters. Pawn shops and resale stores will likely take your knives but they will not pay you what used Wusthof kitchen knives are worth. The internet is your best resource for selling used Wusthof knives. You have several options, such as Amazon, eBay, craigslist, and UsedChefKnives.com. Let’s examine the selling requirements for each site to help you decide where to sell Wusthof knives.

Amazon charges $0.99 per item sold if you are selling less than 40 items per month. There is no fee to list items. Registering as a seller means you agree to sell in Canada and Mexico, which may require additional fees. You must have an internationally chargeable credit card with a valid address and phone number. When an item is sold, you must ship according to the method selected by Amazon. Only professional sellers can have top placement on product detail pages. This means your listing could appear on page 250. If a buyer has a problem with an order, you are responsible for resolving it.

eBay has no fee to list up to 40 items per month. You must have a PayPal account for eBay to deposit money from sales. PayPal charges 2.9% of the sales price plus $0.30 per transaction. A final value fee is charged when an item is sold, usually 10% of the selling price. How quickly the item sells depends on several factors, such as the price plus shipping cost, the selling method, and your skill at crafting a listing description which captures attention. Sometimes people will “buy” an item but either delay paying for the item or never pay for it. You may open a case on the site regarding nonpayment, but it may take up to 30 days to resolve. Never ship an item until the site indicates the seller has actually paid for it. If a buyer has a problem with an order, you are responsible for resolving it.

Craigslist is meant to sell items locally. Setting up an account, listing and selling an item is free. When an item is sold, you are responsible for making arrangements for delivery and payment. Craigslist recommends payment by cash and not shipping an item to reduce the potential for scams. How quickly an item sells depends on local demand and your ability to write an appealing listing. If there are problems with the sale, you and the buyer must work it out or you must be willing to walk away.

Where to sell Wusthof knives? All three sites need time and hold you responsible for the satisfactory completion of the sale. Two have payment requirements and one charges fees. It should not be this difficult to sell your used Wusthof kitchen knives. 
The best part is after you sell your used Wusthof Chef Knife, you can use the new cash to buy a brand new Wusthof knife and perhaps expand your knife set into something like a Chinese Meat Cleaver (check out WarmChef's ranking on what the best Chinese Meat Cleavers are).
The bottom line: Usedchefknives.com offers many advantages compared to the other three sites.
