Even with insurance and delivery conf, it was only just over $6.00. Had I sent it back the same way it was sent to me (a mere envelope), it would have cost even less. I could not bring myself to ship it in an envelope, however. Strange that I care more about return shipping than the vendor did when first shipping it to me.
Oh, I understand completely. Thank you for the sarcasm. You are a very kind person. Consider me duly humiliated. Hooray!
I must have something to learn. How do you ship a package for $3 when the cheapest option starts above $5? Do you just weigh it and put stamps on it or obviously pay the counter person
. I do not go in the PO, I do everything online.
I will agree with you on taking more concern for shipping than vendors do. I have had to ship quite a few items back for warranty and the manufacturers give you direction to make thee item safe, but I always do better anyway. Then they ship the repaired item back barely protected. What kind of crap is that.
I do agree that these knives should never be shipped in a padded envelope. I like to keep every item I ever buy in the best condition possible; including packaging.
I do not think I have an all time favorite knife etailor, too many variables involved
I do however buy most of my knifes from Howes or unitedoutdoors though
