Just to address some of your concerns, it seems everything has come down to the new powdercoater. Anarchy Motive re-located after this group buy had already started. Nobody anticipated colors/finishes to be different than what was advertised. And in fact, Anarchy Motive did not either.
The few incidents of chips have been tracked down to improper preparation by the powdercoater. This has been address for orders moving forward. And those with defective knobs have been offered replacements.
For the ones that were properly prepped, they are still the same awesome knob that it was in the first few batches. If we thought corners were being cut, we wouldn't continue to support this brand. I wouldn't lose any faith in this product just yet.
