Why so many cut Nordost Odins?


I was very impressed by a borrowed Odin IC between my Nagra CDP and ARC pre. I have a Valhalla that i think is to lean but not so with Odin,
Looking the last year for used Odin IC on Audiogon and European AUDIO-Markt.de I found that most Odins where Cut and re-terminated with no boxes.The sellers have good feedback so I don't think this cables are fake!? Was there a profit for dealers to buy say 10m, and cut it to 10x1m? Since cut cables are cheaper that non cut cables I wonder?
What do you think guys?
Anyone compared a cut Odin vs a non cut?
How much cheaper should a cut 1m xlr be compared to a original?

I think it's safe to say that Nordost will have no public comment.
I have also noted several ads for Odin (with wood blocks) and Valhalla originals from respectable sellers with good feedback
on Audiogon and biggest European site Audio-markt (germany)
but with NO BOX. I canĀ“t understand this.If you got an original where is the box?
many of these "boxless cables" were previously dealer demos. they should be identical to the ones in boxes...
also... some of the long (custom ordered) lengths are too large to fit inside the standard wooden box.
I had 3 meter xlr Odin cable,bought at the official dealer, with box and serial number that I wanted to reterminate at the factory. The Nordost refused to do it, saying that they are not doing that with Odin model. I think that is not fair. Sold them for cca 1/3 of price (around 7000 eur).I beleive that it should not be a problem to reterminate them (there are lots of people who have the tools and the know how) but the bigger problem are chinese fakes, that are more and more present now. AQ seems to be their favourite brand for now, but I see growing number of Nordost and other brands as well.That leads you to buy from dealer, but with experience that I had, I would not say to anyone to buy a product from company that gives no factory support later. In that regard, Cardas is far more honest that people from Nordost
