Thanks. Me too.

Here's a picture of the coffee filters as they arrived

So strange.

Re: a painful lesson relearned

Was the coffee filter box addressed to you? Literally a brand new package of coffee filters, unopened no label. I honestly don't know what to think at this point. Going to try to call USPS in the morning, hopefully not spend an hour on hold. Also packed up some garbage in a First Class Mail box I h...

Re: a painful lesson relearned

I have to think it's the carrier. What porch pirate would bring back an empty box? Or leave coffee filters? Unless it's someone mentally ill or extremely bored.

And why does this only happen with USPS when I order knives?

Re: a painful lesson relearned

OK. Now I'm pissed off. Find my Blade HQ box sitting at my front door this evening.... $*<%# EMPTY . Empty. No knives, no packing material, tape cut open, empty. Wtf. I can't believe a thief would leave me coffee filters and then return to the scene of the crime to bring me back an empty box. If som...

I'm jealous of you guys with good USPS shipping. Paying for UPS adds up.

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

If someone threatened me with a knife, I'd bore them to death by explaining the ins and outs of edge geometry, how the steel they chose isn't the best choice for stabbing humans (along with an in-depth explanation on how carbides, chemistry, and heat treat affect those properties), and then use the...

Re: a painful lesson relearned

Thanks for the support guys :) Im sure it's just regional. If they were this bad at their jobs everywhere they'd be out of business :D I know I'll get my knives eventually, they'll either turn up or BHQ awesome people that they are will replace them. The time is what sucks the most. I'm not buying e...

Re: What to do if someone tries to rob you with a knife?

...... It makes me wonder, do any of the more self-defense oriented people have any suggestions as to what to do if that or something like it happens? ..... Presumably running away is safer but I don't run very fast afoot and to do that I'd have to turn my back to the assailant. Being unarmed (i'm ...

Re: a painful lesson relearned

Ever since the last problem I had with them I ship UPS and have them hold my packages at a UPS store for me to pick up. The Chief I had delivered to the house because I was going to be home. Never had an issue with UPS, and their carriers knock or ring the bell when they drop off a package. The odd ...

a painful lesson relearned

As many of you may remember I have told any who will listen to not ship through USPS. Even if it's free it's not worth it I said. Packages marked as delivered and not delivered I said.... So I recently bought a Chief (I paid to send it UPS) arrived with out incident. Then I ordered a Urban LW and Wa...

Re: M390 CTS-204P 20CV :) Hype Steel

So back to the original topic.... soft M390. Dave Warren of Tuya Knives is getting some positive attention today on Instagram. His company had been selling M390 advertised at 59-61. His company saw JcoolG19's HRC test numbers of their knives at 57 hrc and he called the factory in China and had them ...
