    An in-hand pic of the Investigator would be appreciated if anyone feels up to it.

    And thumbs up on ditching the serrations, btw!

    I don't know. I placed an order with a KA-BAR dealer for a Folding Hunter, a fixed blade, and 2 sheaths on 3/26. The dealer keeps pushing the ship date back for some reason. It's now scheduled to ship 5/18. I'm not in a hurry and the price was right so I'm going to wait.
    now 5/22
    now 5/24

    OP is based in Northbrook Illinois, a suburb north of Chicago. There may be something weird happening in Illinois.

    Well, correction, something else weird. :rolleyes:

    They are a dealer of ours. I have actually made some purchases from them over the last few weeks and the shipping time has been longer than normal. My guess would be they are getting hit hard with orders right now and doing the best they can to get everything shipped. Almost everyone I have talked to that sells anything firearms, knives, weapon, or outdoor related has been flooded with orders and are doing the best they can to keep up. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw your order sooner and if this is more of a "worst case scenario" estimate.

    I've done business with them in the past and always been pleased. I'm sure it will be fine this time also. The new normal has changed work for most of us and I'm patient.

    I ordered from optics planet originally, but they took way to long so I asked for a refund

    I purchased two investigators from knivesplus.com and recieved them crazy fast
