    Heads-up. While I have experienced seamless transactions with this company in the past, I ordered a knife in April (fortunately, it wasn't terribly expensive.). After a month I sent an inquiry, received an auto-response with an assigned inquiry number, a phone number that is out-of-service, and an unfulfilled promise of a response within 24-hours. The Kentucky Better Business Bureau attempted to intercede on my behalf; they were no more successful than I was. So . . . if you get the urge to order from them, don't.

    Don't know what "level" of blades we're talking about, but if you are looking for a good deal on Kershaw blems, kershawguy.com is great. I've ordered from him a couple times. He's in Oregon, so shipping is quick.

    My personal opinion:

    Big fan of Benchmade knives. I think you can buy those direct from manufacturer, but you might also want to consider getting them from REI, which has strong customer service and carries Benchmade and a bunch of other great knife brands. Food for thought!
