    Recommended Knife Retailer

    Any of our esteemed members have a favorite source for EDC knives? Specifically, I am looking for a Benchmade automatic.

    There are more than a few sources, and being able to pick one that is reliable and provides good customer service would help me in my search.

    Recommended models would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    The three biggest online retailers that come mind are:
    - BladeHQ (www.bladehq.com)
    - Knifecenter (www.knifecenter.com)
    - Knifeworks (www.knifeworks.com)
    I have personally had only positive dealings with all three, albeit some of those transactions years ago.

    I just made a $260 purchase from https://www.arizonacustomknives.com for a knife I've been wanting for a long time. I got a shipping notice 30 min after making the purchase. It should be here soon, and I think y'all are going to like it :-)

    I've had good experiences at KnifeCenter and BladeHQ.

    @Wondering Beard you are actually responsible for the recent purchase that cost me half the money I got from the gun I just sold. Thanks buddy.

    You are quite welcome. After all, you introduced me to Ban Tang's knives a few years back and .. well now I have more than a few. I can only but return the favor :-)

    Oh and .. pics or it didn't happen. ;-)

    Will do. Hint: what's kind of like a Ban Tang Disciple, but different? I think you may have one or two.

    I’ve been very happy with monkeyedge, but I just order a winkler directly from winkler knives. This way I get exactly what I want.

    If you have the luxury of time, going direct works very well.

    Hmm.

    Off the top of my head, I would say a Ban Tang SAF Pikal, but I think that they were all sold out a while ago on the websites I linked. So my next guess would be a Watson Pikal through Blue Line gear? If that's a correct guess, it's a great knife and yeah I have a couple.
