@8steve88:

My last order with FT was on Feb. 11th, bought only 4 knives since then (all from GreaseBreast), and I think I'll quit buying knives for a while.
Except any knives designed by Chad Los Banos, of course.^^
I should receive a Böker Plus M-Type soon.



(damn, I need that gif on my letter box^^)



The Greased Breast that you speak of has had very poor results for me.

Chad Los Banos sometimes posts on the British Blades forum, seems like a genuine guy. I like a lot of his designs but they are a bit on the costly side, excellent fit/finish on the ones I've seen.

I've just put an Enlan EL-01B in my shopping cart and noticed that there is some text on a green background that proclaims "Shipping:Free Worldwide Shipping" but only EMS comes up as an option.

I have seen on the forty thieves website an all black EL-01 with Boker Magnum branding, I was looking for a cheaper option to the Boker Plus Nano 42. The seller listed them under the name of Mugnum, They are the best finish ans flipping ability of any EL-01 that I've ever had, better even than the Boker Magnum A-Stan, a very nice EL-01 re-branded by Boker, if you want one go for the Mugnum - you won't be disapointed, a friend of mine bought one and his is superb as well.

I know it's only Böker Magnum, but this (Sgian Dubh) is a very elegant wee beastie in the flesh, for not much money at all. I bought mine for use as an athame, but it's lived on my night stand since I got it.




Damn you, now I have a new knife to shop for. Since you own one how thin is the point? Is it usable or like the old cold steel sgian dubh where is so thin you breath on it and it folds over. I made the mistake of trying to use the cold steel one as my knife when I wear a kilt and the tip is all screwed up from just normal use now.

My opinions are my own. If you disagree with them please take a big healthy crap in your hands and give yourself a round of applause.

So after waiting 3 weeks for an order to come in stock, i've just been informed

"Sorry to inform you that EMS cannot ship knives any more due to the recent stricter security checking. We find there are knives in your order.

Would you like to take out all the knives and refund you and get the rest items reshipped via EMS?

Or do you agree with us to ship your whole order via Swiss Post which takes about 15-25 business days to deliver? And we will refund you the EMS charge in this case. But we cannot promise a 100% successful delivery.

Please let us know your decision. Thank you."

Complete pisstake.

At least it's offering a solution.
I have had good results from Swiss Post, but others haven't. You just have to risk it.

I don't get it.
When I add a knife to my cart, the only option available is EMS ($27), no Swiss post for me.
