I am still a virgin, lol. Good luck to your request for lowering the shipping cost. It's good for everyone but pretty sure FT won't give a damn.

Thanks Jack.

Posting that in the first place might have been much easier :)

Dunno where you live so it may not apply to you, but I use free shipping all the time on stuff I order from FT all the time and typically get the stuff within two weeks. I think the only two exceptions have been my last order which took three weeks and one that had a problem during shipping that took three or four weeks. Still, nothing I've ever ordered has taken seven weeks. Again, I live in the US so if you are elsewhere it could be different. I do agree that I wouldn't pay as much for shipping as I did for the product though. That's a bit much for Chinese made clones. lol

I will say that I haven't ordered any knives from FT lately, so it could have changed and I might possibly be talking out of my ass, but the other stuff I've ordered has come in nine to fifteen days.

I'm from the UK.

Was told that the free shipping AML would take 30 business day (Actually 6 weeks)

If theres a chance that it would be a 1/3 of that I'd go for it. Until then I'll just get knives from [removed], shame though as they don't have the new spydie clones in stock they have got here recently.

Most of the good knives here can be had at [removed], I had some success with Euroknife, no customs declaration what so ever although it did take a month to dispatch.

The sad thing is that this thread makes me want to go knife shopping... not sad that I want to go knife shopping, just sad that this is what I came away with from this thread. lol

Thread:
"Knife shipping is atrocious!"

Me:
"Hmmmm... I want a new knife!"

Know how you feel.

Would rather have all my knife / vape orders from the same place tbh.

I'm still holding out hope they find a reasonably priced courier for them in the future.
I don't doubt they'll have noticed the steep decline in knife orders since the shipping changed. Money Talks.

You'd think so, but given some of the trends in new stuff they're carrying I'm curious as to who the hell is buying... lol

Just for grins I checked to see what my options are in the States for a knife right now... for a $23 Ganzo (I want the orange G720 monstrosity lol) it's either $21 for 4-9 days shipping or free USPS first class at 8-14 days , which translates to two or three weeks realistically. So yeah, for the US it doesn't seem to have changed a terrible amount and I can live with the free shipping option just fine, but those were the ONLY two options. I think I remember there used to be more when I ordered my knives.
