Prices are very good. The question is "Are they reliable? Did anybody bought from them before?"
I did search on BF on Good, Bad and Ugly. I did not find anything.

My top choices Natives5, Calys, C83 Persian

I bought a blue Dodo and Poliwog from them and the service, prices and shipping were top notch!! Dodo was the cheapest I've seen at $62.99 but I noticed they have gone up a little. :(

No go

I just tried to order a DLC Temperance and could not comptete the transaction. Most likely my bad. Old crappy (FREE!) computer probably to blame.

New Graham's online ordering website is also inassessable to me but the lovely Mary Beth is always a phone call away. ...And really nice.

Thumbs down on this website for me.

THIS IS CUT FROM A EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM WILDDEALZ Also if anyone should have doubts on whether I am a legit company. A quick view for businesses at http://www.washingtonstate.gov will show that I am a registered and legitimate business owner in the state of washington.

The reason why my prices are so low is because I have been selling on ebay where it is very very competitive as far as pricing goes. I am actually attemtping to compete with ebay pricing right now. You and anyone else will notice that I am a GOLD level powerseller with a nearly impeccable feedback rating on ebay (you can actually get to my ebay store by using the ebay store link located on the left navigation bar on the homepage of my website), meaning I have been doing this for quite some time now and am attempting to move out into the outside ebay market (their fees are getting way too high, and I am finding myself having to put this extra burden on the customers pocket. I cant offer the prices I like to offer on ebay, it just isnt a feasible market anymore)

Please also remember that I do over 25,000+ dollars in sales over ebay a month and about 10,000 in sales a month on the website right now. This means that I receive about 700-800 orders a month for the knives I carry. I normally carry about 90% of my stock in my personal inventory and warehouse. The other 10% is drop shipped, meaning that the package you may receive is sent straight from my distributor and not from my business warehouse. I have to do this for a lot of the more popular knives and a lot of the hard to find knives. Popular knives are very hard to keep in stock, so instead of having them shipped to me and then over to the customer, it is a lot simpler to just have the package shipped from the distributor. What this all boils down to is, is I sometimes require a 2-6 business day handling time to get orders together. Hopefully the prices I offer can make up for this reduction in service for my customers.

Eastr, Are you quoting a mail or post from the real David or are you David?

I agree with Ted. That is bad form. You fessed up "pretty quickly" and before someone called you on it (which they would have!)

I also find it odd you say you're in Indiana but your business is in Washington??

Feels creepy.

Mr. Osborne

When you signed up here you agreed to the terms and conditions of this forum - specifically, no selling or trading.

Your first post in this thread says

certainly implying that you are writing about someone other than yourself.

Your last post indicates that you are using this forum to advertise your own site

Using this forum to advertise your own business is one thing. Posting as though you are someone testifying to Wildeals great bargains when you are actually the owner is being less than forthright.

Let's ease up on the guy and cut him some slack...while his first post was deceptive he "turned" it around pretty fast, all by himself as far as I can tell. It's not as though we haven't all "mis-stepped" at one time or another. Fair warning has been "announced", some seem to prefer to "throw stones"....let's see if he can't walk the straight line......as we look into the mirror.

The original post is intentionally deceptive and attempts to mislead readers into thinking that the post is independent and objective - which it turns out later it is NEITHER.

Later, the original poster changes from third person to first person to reveal that the original post was actually an advertisement for his own company and he is promoting his own wares under the guise of an objective third person:

This is just plain wrong and I will not do business with someone to attempts to deceive me for their own business benefit. Period.

"Using this forum to advertise your own business is one thing. Posting as though you are someone testifying to Wildeals great bargains when you are actually the owner is being less than forthright."

I have to agree. I would probably have checked out your site and if you were legit, I would have bought from you since your prices seem good but I am not sure if I can trust anything about you now. Trust is everything on the web. If you start out trying to trick us, why should he trust you? I know it is hard being a little guy and having to compeat against larger companies but tricking people doesn't help.

Call me odd man out but I will go where I can get the best deals..........PERIOD!!
I have had a very good experience with this seller and will continue to do business with him until He proves to me that I shouldn't. I don't personally have a problem with the way He presented himself because he was quick to tell his story and not let it drag out forever. These are my personal views on this and not meant to be imposed on anyone else or cause offense! ;)

Mr. Osborne
Wild Dealz was the company that was advertising a BG42 knife on E-bay. The trouble? Mantis knives did not produce a BG42 knife at the time. I linked you the companies website which listed the knife in question as 420HC, the steel made famous by Buck knives and explained the error.

Despite that you left the listing up and made no attempt to change it. You told me you had a paper price list that stated the knife was BG42, and the website was wrong. I gave further evidence as to why it couldn't be BG42, especially at the price listed.

I filed a complaint with e bay. Did they tell you? Despite your low prices I wouldn't do business with you if you were the last knife dealer on the net. Joe

Since there seems to be a major difference between the OP's address and the dealers, and since I've already done more than my fair share of jumping to conclusions for the month, I'm going to "assume" for now that eastr's second post was meant to be a quote of an email or other correspondence he received from the seller. Will still continue to deal with NGK, mind you, but will refrain from grabbing my torch and pitchfork for now. :D

Not quite. He posted an similar "deceptive" post a few days ago - without the followup that identified him as the "owner" of the company he was recommending.

It appears as if I "jumped the gun" to his defense. I shall be more circumspect in the future and wait until all the facts are in. In the mean time I will ready the hot tar, and dispatch the wife to the chicken coup for feathers ! :o
