That's quite a poetic image you painted there Nick. Hijacking the subject matter as usual and boring, but quite poetic.

Seems on topic to me Mario and not nearly as boring as Bills voluminous diatribes on such an earthshaking matter. :wink:

YOU DA MAN!!!! :oops:


Yes, my order is now resolved Nick, thank you, but there were issues that seriously fell well short of being acceptable. Those issues were not so much about the *actual* delay itself but the lack of clarity of why the delay, being mislead and lack of communication by the retailer.
I asked and offered on several occasions in the weeks before I posted on B-T to "please lets work this out" with no reply. (7 emails if I recall, 15 in all).
As I said in my post Nick, Im pleased and relieved to get my order, and am very pleased with the items themselves. In the last week or so Mr PVK has been very helpful and kept me informed, which goes a long way with customers generally. It would be churlish of me to start it all up again, at your behest or incitement.
Anyway, I thought Josh was a friend of yours? :shock:
Why go that route? :?

I'll probably order again from Mr PVK, in the vein of giving someone a fair chance, now there's a lesson to be learnt Nick :wink: :lol:
Besides, he's got one mofo selection of cutlery :twisted:

all the best (honestly, even to you Nick :lol: :wink: )

Never had a problem with PVK, slightly longer delivery times but he (Josh) said that would be the case.
So reliable have I found his service that I always go there for my best stuff, dam the cost, I always get what I ordered.

Just got my shipment (+ one free knife - LCC clone). The knives I got are junk (all clones) but that is what my friend wanted.

May 11th 2018 - I almost didn't place my order based on these old message posts.

I had a great experience with PVK Knives in Las Vegas, NV.

They actually HAD the knife i was looking for and + 3 more in stock.

I ordered it on Tuesday and received it Friday. (I did do the 3 day USPS shipping)

It was about $20 more than I would have liked to pay, but being how hard these Microtech knives are to find - I guess them making a little more profit was ok.

Order with confidence! Hopefull this post is the most recent.

Nice to see that even 13 year old threads are useful. Of course lots can happen in that time, like many of those involved in this discussion are no longer active members.

I've ordered quite a few knives from Josh over the years and never had a bad experience. Keep his reward points in mind when comparing prices. If you're a repeat customer, they can really add up. I had a $150 discount on my last purchase thanks to accumulated points that I'd forgotten I had.

I bought a knife(Italian) once through them and the scales and liners were bowed out badly like they were pried out with something. I sent the knife back and got full refund, even shipping. First impressions you know.

The OP's description and difficulties reflect my own, insofar as my LAST dealing with PVK. His business practices remain spotty, although I've never thought Josh to be a thief. I'm guessing that he's still a one-man show and that he becomes overwhelmed with the business part of running a business.

The delays and zero email response to multiple inquiries did do anything that would prompt a response from Josh.

Somewhere around the 7 week mark, I had VISA do a chargeback against PVK over the transaction for non-shipment. Sometimes, you gotta get nasty I guess.

Never heard word one from Josh, no apology, no nothing. Not an experience I'm willing to repeat.

I'm happy for those with positive PVK experiences, but it seems that things don't change much there, despite the bitching and trashings he gets here and in other forums.
