Does anyone have a favorite retailer that they buy from most often?
Who and why?
Now I buy from White Mountain Knives mostly.
They have a nice selection, and give a good description of their knives, including steel and, important to me, country of origin.
But a lot of dealers are good. KnivesShipFree and Grand Prairie Knives are two other favorites. On the smaller end USA Made Blade and NC Blade are good.
Smokey Mountain Knife Works
River’s Edge Cutlery
The Knife Joker
St Nick’s Knives
I’ve had good service from all of these
KnivesShipFree | Premium Knives - All in Stock
They are based in Chattanooga; I'm about an hour away and I'm in the area often. Last time I was there they didn't have the showroom open. Only doing online orders. But they have been great to work with. The price you see is the price you pay if you live in most states. No shipping charges and they don't charge tax for me in GA.
I also have family all over east TN and we camp/hike a lot in the Smoky Mountains. I make it a point to go here anytime I'm there. I don't order much from them, but often pick up something when in the area. It is a great place to see and hold a lot of different knives.
Home Page | SMKW
And I've ordered some from
Knives, EDC, and Outdoor Gear - Huge Selection | Blade HQ
Knives - Knife Center
River's Edge Cutlery
then all the rest
DLT Traiding, Arizona Custom Knives, Blade Gallery, Steel Addiction, SMKW, BHQ, Knifecenter, Knives Ship Free, Cutlery Shoppe, True Swords, Chicago Knife Works, Grand Prairie, ebay, closed and open FB groups.
They still will. They sent me a boker auto to NY no questions asked.
SMKW a few times a year as my son and daughter in law live outside of Knoxville, TN.
I don't do online purchases of knives; I like to handle them before I buy.
Counterfeits concern me as well. I only order things from Amazon that I can’t find anywhere else. Knives aren’t on the list.
I was only in there a few times, but they were very nice, had an enormous stock of knives, and his prices were competitive with anything on line.
Shame they closed.
DLT Trading for commercial knives
Arizona Custom Knives for collector knives
Blade Gallery and Monkeys Edge for hard-to-find knives
Chicago Knife Works for good prices
After that The Knife Center, BladeHQ, The Knife Connection, Midway, and Amazon
Ive ordered from SMKW a time or two... even visted the store on a trip once. Kind of blew my kids mind when they walked into the building and saw so many knives in one place.
