Anyone heard of Bestknifeshop?

https://www.bestknifeshop.com/

Do any of you have any experience with this shop? Are they an authorized Spyderco dealer? They do not even say where they are located.

Looks VERY sketchy to me. Prices are too low on a LOT of high demand items and exclusive.

The BHQ Manix is $119, with a delivery estimate of 10-20 days. That seems off.

Also, a REC Para3 for $125? I don't think so.

Either fake or never updated. I'm immediately skeptical after seeing them claim to have an REC Para 3 in stock for $126... :rolleyes:

I would avoid purchasing from them personally. Too many questionable listings.

Thanks, you're the man!

I mean, heck! The website is "Bestknifeshop" and the banner at the top says "Knife Store". That sounds like Chinese people to me, lol!

Thanks. I was dubious, but some prices seemed good. I thought it better to ask.

Any time a site has a title like that, it's a scam. I was looking for the best price for my bk2, and one site had it for $60. The sites name was fishingbest or something like that. Immediately knew it was a scam.

Hero Outdoors should be on the watch list too. They have a store front and look legit, but have been caught out by them. They process the transaction, and your money, for items they know are not in stock. Then, you have to go through the charge back procedure with your credit card company to get your cash back for goods not received. It is a pain in the.... Months long hassle and standard operating procedures for this company.
