I had to shake my head and put palm-to-face when I saw David roll up into the Shark Tank in a three-piece tie-dye SUIT, fer Pete's sake. That's the kind of thing that immediately lowers your stock - at least in the eyes of the Sharks. Am I right?
It's hard to take a guy in a tie-dye suit seriously, and he clearly takes himself very seriously. BUT his cutting boards and cheese boards do look amazing, and to me, his pride is warranted.
But, boy-howdy, $400,000 is an awfully big check to write, even for a Shark. Especially for something that can't just be out-sourced to China and produced for pennies. These are quality (premium!) kitchen products, and the margins must be pretty tight. It's not too surprising that he walked out with no offers, even after he raised the equity offer.
