What Happened to ABC-Direct?



I was looking for the link in the links pages - and its gone.

Did they forget to pay the bill? Or Have they been screwing up orders?

ABC - Direct seems to be a very upfront dealer - honest and with very good customer service.

Has anyone had any problems with them?

I just checked it out, and ABC-Direct isn't listed under the links page 'dealers' like Ogre found out!

Yes, what did happen to that link? I just ordered from them and they still exist, still carry knives, and still price match!

Is it because Spark or Mike are working to improve their web pages? Read that this morning on another thread " is something going on with ABC-Direct" where it was mentioned regarding updating ABC-Direct's web site.

I'm not sure about the link or anything, but ABC direct seems to be up and running. I ordered on Friday, and they're there all right.

I have noticed the ABC Direct Banner Ad comming up once in awhile... But not the link.

ABC just took an order for me - Great Customer Service... "Discount Knives WHO?"

I got a BM AFCKbt, no, not a BM AFCampKbt, from ABC Direct for a great price and it came in a week! Very pleased
We fixed their site today so it should be running fine. Something was wrong in the script which handles the orders. Also since BF uses there site for the secured server it effected our orders for the last few days.

The new version of ABC-Direct will be up soon with all new pics, shopping cart and much more.

Mike Gallagher has some really neat stuff in store as he just bought 10 new banners here! Yahoooooooo!

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

I ordered last week and received my order within 3 days, so I didn't come across any problem with ABC.
I just got a AFCK from them the other week... Very friendly people on the phone too! I would deal with them again.

Buy only the best... you'll never be satisfied otherwise...
I was most impressed when I called - no hold time... phone answered in just 3 rings... Dude was very pro about everything and I even got to talk knives for a minute!

ABC will get all my business for production blades...

Unless of course another dealer can give me a real killer deal

I mean, if I went around saying I was an Emperor because some
moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, people would put me away!
