    hi guys

    this will be the first time i purchase anything form HI so i got a few questions. I am very interested in purchasing the PEN Knife which they have listed in their ordering page "cant believe the low price", i am curious as to what the normal wait time is when placing the order, is it shipped out when payment is received or is it like some other places that make you wait weeks on end? I have been looking all over for a great chopper that i wont feel guilty using like my other expensive knives which of course ends up as drawer queens. I read the post about the pen knife actually getting a work out and the knife seem to fill the void of a good knife that i can finally abuse. thanks

    When you place your order in comments ask which handle version is in stock, Yangdu will email back with what she has, the website has payment options as soon as that clears the knife will be on it's way normally in 1 day.
    HI is one of the fastest shippers around.
    Good luck and you will not be disappointed with the Pen Knife, I have two of them.

    Welcome, Rctk:)

    Let's put it this way, after ordering anything from Yangdu everything you order from someone else will seem like it takes years for it to get there;) I live in Indiana. Generally speaking I can expect 2-3 days from "done deal. Will ship today" to USPS delivery. HI has always been fast. Yangdu has made it super fast. She is a class act:)
    As for the PK, excellent "little" knife. Only on a forum like this would a 12.5" 13oz knife be little;) Also, just in case you missed it on the site, all HI khuks and knives are measured in overall length not just blade length like more machined knives. I love the PK. It really is a great camping blade. hefty enough to chop really well, thin enough to slice up potatoes for a stew, wide enough to flip your morning pan cakes, and unique enough not to be seen as a "big honkin' murderin' knife" by most.
    Congrats, enjoy, pull up a chair:) Oh, and read the safety thread;)
    Once again, welcome:)

    i have been looking all over the net for years now and have ordered large choppers from custom knifemakers as well as the mass produced. most knives that i get are expensive and are normally taken out of their sheaths only to be looked at and admired, most of my knives end up as drawer queens. i dont know why after spending all this dough i never bothered to look at HI for choppers, when i think of the amount of money i could have saved if i only checked this place sooner:rolleyes: once i get my PK i will surely use and abuse this bad boy and then pickup another and another.....:)

    HI ships extremely fast. I am also in Indiana, as mentioned above, and I have never waited more than two days. Great customer service from a great company. Enjoy your Pen Knife. I have two of them and they are awesome. They chop like a much larger blade and hold an edge forever. Remember to keep an eye on the daily deals, as Pen knives usually go for around $60 bucks. They are worth much more than that though. Remember to post a review when you get the blade.

    i'll most certainly post a review once i get the knife. i have been looking at all the knives at HI and now another knife has caught my eye "HI Bolo", hopefully they have this knife available so that i can order both at the same time. Man I hate being a Knifenut with a credit card :rolleyes: its worse than being an alcoholic!
    Hi my name is ......and i have a buying problem!

    Not a buying problem, maybe...a paying problem? MUCH different.

    Have you followed any of the Military Surplus gun threads in the Cantina?

    Makes for a nice companion addiction.

    Good hunting.

    Rctk1, welcome, and check out this thread:


    Saves me having to write you about the handle! :D

    I'm not sure you know, but check out the deals of the day on this forum. There is a good selection of knives there, and sometimes saves you $ from shopping on the web site. But for unusual items like the Bolo you were asking about, which are rare, it is best to just see if Yangdu can get it for you.

    For pens knives and others though, they come up regularly on the DOTD. You just have to be fast. They come up about 11 am. your time I think, if you can be online then.
