I have not had a good history with mail ordering knives. At the beginning of the year I ordered an ATS-34 knife from Cabela's. I guess they were very busy from the holidays, but instead of getting my knife they sent me a package of cheese and mustard import snacks. I sent it back paying an extra large sum for shipping since the cheese was so heavy. And then there was my order placed with KC. My order took around two and a half weeks to arive, but that is not too uncommon. The disapointing part was that when I got the box it had been openned already and then subsequently re-taped shut. It seemed as if it had been delivered to the wrong address because the address was circled and multiple bar codes had been placed on the box then crossed out. The package looked as if it was water logged. It had been dropped many times before reaching me. Just today I learned that my 76 dollar money order sent to DK a week and a half ago has not been recieved, and so I will not be recieving my safe keeper any time soon. I suppose I have to go the post office to try and get my money back from the money order, but I forsee much paper work and many months before they give me a refund. Anyone else have problems with the mail? I think I will buy my next knife from a gun/blade show so that I can hold the knife in my left hand while I give my money away with my right.
