Introduce myself and websites

Postby Casey woodrift » Sat May 19, 2018 4:34 pm

Hello!
Although I had been active on this forum for a while with a different account a few years back, I created a new account because I couldn’t get back into my old one.

Can anyone share good websites to buy new Italian knives?
I know the good ones list covers this but I fear it may be out dated,
Thank you

Bladehq.com, Bladeplay.com, Myswitchblade.com, Menseffects.com., Ebay (though not always brand new), Latham's vintage knives, and many more. Search " Italian switchblade knives and you will find all kinds of sites, some are not reputable.

Befor you buy, ask if anyone here has done business with them. You’ll get honest feedback.

I should be receiving a knife from knifeshop.com (Austria) this coming Tuesday. Some of the shops seem to be rebrands of other shops. The reason for this is a mystery to me.
Searching for sources is a very enjoyable part of the process of collecting anything. I do not see the enjoyment of instantly having a source list without the hunt. But that is just my opinion.

Some seem to be the same store with another name: AutoKnife.com and 24-7 Knives.com definitely are the same store. There are other links that I have removed from my Bookmarks which are the exact format and offerings.
I was not referring to the knives but the stores.

I can see more so on the "bad ones" as they get a bad reputation and possibly attempt to fool the buying public into thinking they are dealing with another place. But, I agree about not understanding on why the more reputable sites do it as well. Same stock, same procedure, different name.

That website, or whatever name they are going by this quarter, should be avoided at all costs.
