Hi , I am the seller of the Berliner cuffs . Mr. Santini does not tell the whole truth to this matter . He emailed me and asked me to end my auction early . He offered me $1,000.00 to end this auction . I will admit that my reserve was far below his offer . I deal in collectables for a living and of course when he made me such an offer I became worried about my low reserve . I emailed him to tell him I was ending the auction early . I told him my new reserve would be below his offer . He immediately emailed me back saying I had two hours to accept his offer and that after this time he would not honor it . He said he would be "out of town " for the end of this auction and could not bid . Yeah , and I was born yesterday ! . I feel noone has the right to dictate terms on my merchandise so when Mr. Santini told me I had only two hours to sell to him or forget it . I simply did forget it . I relisted the cuffs later that evening . Mr. Santini then bid on the cuffs and was disapointed because my reserve was not met . He retracted his bid , which is evident on my ebay bid history . Stating that I had lied to him about my reserve . The teeth on these cuffs are not filed in , they are machined in . I know nothing of handcuffs but the hinge bolt has been there forever and has been put there to hold a loop for fastening to something , possibly a belt . Mr. Santini told me he would fix it so noone would bid on my item . So I guess this is how a vengeful person operates . By asking me to end this auction he has tried to cheat everyone else out of a chance to bid . Feel free to email me with any questions or photos of these cuffs . I have absolutely nothing to hide . Mr. Santini's emails are available upon request . Thank You , John
