Free Shipping at KnifeCenter.com This Weekend

Just letting everyone know that KnifeCenter.com is offering free shipping all weekend (excluding some large & heavy items, as usual).  My guess is that this is in honor of SHOT Show.  And of course some places offer free shipping all the time, like AtlanticKnife.com, & White Mountain Knives.Some other sites, like MidwayUSA.com, seem to have upped their minimums for free shipping (bummer).Regardless, just wanted to post this info. for anyone wanting to save on shipping.  Have a good rest…See More

Cold Steel SRK-C vs. Mora Garberg

Posted on March 7, 2022 at 22:18 1 Comment

At some point, I answered a question on a Facebook group for Mora users & collectors.  While that answer was a bit of a knife review in brief, I have no idea what happened to that reply I made and it's likely forever lost to the annals of Facebook.

The summary, however, is this:  the Cold Steel SRK-C ("C" standing for "compact") is a very viable alternative to the Mora Garberg.  The SRK-C has a saber grind, similar to the Garberg's, but the grind is higher, giving the SRK-C better…

Blade HQ Has Free Shipping for President's Day Weekend!

Posted on February 18, 2022 at 17:26 6 Comments

Hey all!  This time it's Blade HQ that's offering the free shipping -- and from what I can tell, there's no size limit!  (I often pick up a machete during the Blade HQ free shipping sales; I placed a machete in my cart again this time, & again, the shipping was listed as "FREE"!)  And as far as I can see, there's no minimum (I had a $12 item in my cart, & the shipping was also listed as "FREE").

The sale starts today, Friday, 2/18/22, & goes through President's Day,…

It's another FREE SHIPPING weekend @ Knifecenter.com!

Posted on February 4, 2022 at 20:32 2 Comments

Well well well, here we are yet again with a FREE SHIPPING weekend at Knifecenter.com!  Just use the code FREESHIP at checkout, & remember that certain exceptions apply (mostly the large stuff like machetes & heavy stuff like axes).

And while Atlantic Knife & White Mountain Knives have free shipping all the time, Knife Center has a larger inventory, so I think it's still worthwhile. 

While I'm not affiliated with Knifecenter.com in any way, I will disclose the fact…

Hello ,

Thank you for your message. I'm a bit long to answer because I 've to learn how the forum works. Yes I've a komboloi in my pocket since my 20 years old (first trip in Greece 30 years ago ). I have only have traditional komboloi because I can play slow or faster. I'm not good with begleri. Have a great week end .

I've got some work-related travel coming up but hope to really dig into the IKC when I get back. Planning to meet Lars for a coffee and share some sharp notes!

Thank you, sir! It's great to be here. I plan on doing all of that. But mostly, in glad I'm not alone in this addiction. I'm on a Spyderco kick lately. Just ordered a new PM2 (satin plain blade, g10 handles). I'm thinking of doing a YouTube channel for my collection as well, if that's allowed here.

Thanks, I updated my profile so to be not misleading in my collector status.  I am sure I will learn a lot here in the future.

Thank you dead_left_knife_guy. I haven't worked in the Sheffield cutlery industry since 1984 but I still have a passion for Sheffield's industrial heritage.  Cutlery plays a massive part in that.
