    Recommendation? Which 2.5” Folder?

    This is a GREAT suggestion if you want an inexpensive option. For a dressier, though much pricier, pick I strongly recommend the Bestech Goblin. Very good ergonomics for such a small knife and it just has a ton of utility and charm.

    Steelophiles-what's so important about the type of steel?

    I used to cut a lot of cardboard at work, and while I could have used a box cutter, using a knife was part of the fun. At that time I really noticed a significant difference in the performance of different steels and developed a preference both for thin, slicey blades and steels with very high...

    Metal Complex de-monetized

    To be blunt, I think you're jumping the gun extremely hard with that assumption. Youtube is notorious for demonitizing channels without explanation and seemingly arbitrarily. They're generally quite hostile to their content creators in general and this could be something as simple as them...

    Thoughts on TwoSun knives

    I trust eBay vastly less than I trust Amazon. If they want to sell to me they can do so through my outlet of choice. There's nothing wrong with choosing not to do that, but it ensures that I'll not buy them.

    Thoughts on TwoSun knives

    Because I can trust the product I get vastly more from an established dealer, I can ask those middlemen to check products and trust them to have the knowledge to do so, I can trust them not to ship me a knife that was previously sold and returned and I'm certain that I'll actually receive the...

    Thoughts on TwoSun knives

    Because counterfeits abound on the platforms they choose to sell on and I don't particularly care for companies that aren't willing to go through established, reputable dealers. If it doesn't bother others, more power to them, but I'm not going to bother with them until that changes.

    Perception and needs

    Had a friend that was a bit older than me who frequently tells the story of the time he went to a concert in Canada and got extremely high without thinking about the fact that he had to cross the border back into the states. Apparently, that fact dawned on him as he approached the border and he...

    Recommendation? Is a Rat 1 still worth it today?

    Absolutely. Personally, in the same price range I'm much more likely to buy a CJRB, QSP or CIVIVI than a Rat but, to be frank, I think those companies are more focused on the knife enthusiast than folks that just need a simple work knife. For a beater, or just an honest, rugged, unpretentious if...

    Perception and needs

    Quite some time ago I began buying and carrying the knives that I want, as I have more knives than any one person could ever need. When working and dealing with clients I use a multitool if something needs to be cut, as that keeps things socially appropriate, but otherwise I only restrict my...

    Innocuous/discreet carry knives

    When working with the public I usually carry a primary knife for actually getting things done when the public isn't around (and for fun, I am a knife knut) and a SOG Powerlitre multitool both for the variety of tools it offers and for something innocuous if I have to cut something in front of a...

    Best Folding Knife Action You've Ever Felt

    Welcome to the forums! I'm in Southern Ohio, so it's always good to see another Buckeye knife nut. Sounds like you have some nice knives and pics are always highly encouraged here, so post 'em up (though I' m not sure if the process on how to do that has changed with the new server and format)!

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    If that's a strawman argument then your statement becomes a tautology, because to reach full completion, they would by definition have to have delivered knives to everyone. So if we assume that, then we have to look at their claims, and how they compare to reality. I can't be bothered to count...

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    So as long as they don't claim they've delivered all the knives it isn't theft? That kind of logic is rather special.

    This is the 778th comment in a thread dedicated to their poor business practices. Fixall has linked to many others. You have been given search terms to Google and instructed to look at their Better Business Bureau profile. At some point you're either being willfully obtuse and ignoring the...

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    "i will never buy from them again but i have yet to see somebody being scammed by them." I guess I don't see how this can be interpreted as anything but a defense against the observation that they're running a scam.

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    I don't see how this post can be categorized as anything but defending them. You're defending them against being called scammers as well as defending their restocking fee policy.

    I sincerely apologize, you commented during a conversation with a different member and I didn't pay attention to the names. I firmly retract the statement that you claimed you received a knife, but I stand by the first part of what I said.

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    You've repeatedly defended them against people accurately describing them as thieves and you stepped into the thread by defending them and saying that you had received the knives you ordered. Simply saying you aren't defending them doesn't change the fact that you have been. I'm not trying to...

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    Randall Knives don't take payment in full. It does not vary from state to state, they are a scam and operate illegally. The fact that you continue to defend them, despite admitting that you're ignorant of the law, is pretty clear evidence that the scam is working.

    Bad Survive! Deserves A Permanent Post In The Hall Of Shame

    You're incorrect on almost all counts. If you don't state a shipping time frame it defaults to thirty days if you take payment in full. The language you use doesn't matter. Now I have to ask you, how many years would you go without a product before saying someone was a thief for failing to...
