A brick and mortar shop emails me that my order is ready. I respond, letting them know when will I likely show up.
Once there, I quickly inspect the knife for fit and finish, action, blade play and centering and play with it on the way home.
At home I put its box in a box box in the shed and start using my new knife.
After a day or two it usually needs cleaning, so I disassemble it and also polish the washers while I am at it. I enjoy the improved smoothness and drop-shutiness.
