    This, plus AZ custom, and several of the others mentioned. Since nobody has added GPknives, I will:

    Iíve bought several eagerly anticipated Spydercos from them over the years. They get their allotments of new models as fast, or faster than anyone, IME.

    Man, they have some nice knives. Especially for a fan of (relatively) affordable big blades. Iím on a hiatus from buying gear for a while, but Iíll be back to that site at some point.

    Gpknives.com. Their physical store is right down the road from me.

    They are just up the road from me (about 90-minutes). So you know, if you need me to go buy you anything/go hands on and hang on to it for awhile, just let me know.

    I have personally had only positive dealings with all three, albeit some of those transactions years ago.
    Agree with all these, and with dlttrading and gpknives, listed earlier in the thread. If I was forced to pick one go-to: bladehq. Good prices, great site information that lets you sort and search by what criteria you want (type of blade, steel, price range, etc), great service.

    Another one--if interested in fixed blades like ESEE and the ability to customize them with custom handles and other details: https://theknifeconnection.com/.

    Second that. DLT Trading Company is my favorite by far. I ordered a couple of Lon Humphrey Customs and some hard to source Emersons from them over the last couple of years. Great people to deal with. I placed an order for a BRK with impala scales about a year ago. An hour after I placed the order I got a call from one of their CS reps informing me that the scale on one side of the knife I ordered had slightly separated from the tang, and wasn't up to their quality control standards. I asked if they opened and inspected every knife they sell before it shipped out, and they told me they did. That was enough for me to be a return customer.

    A close second choice would be KSF, knivesshipfree.com. Also good people.

    Most of the well known names seem to have been mentioned. I've had pleasant transactions with all or most of them.

    If it hasn't already been mentioned, National Knives is another good one. There's pretty much only one vendor I won't order from and it doesn't bear mentioning their name.
