I've recently acquired 2 of these from personal collections, and they piqued my curiosity. As I stated before, I scoured the knife forums here and elsewhere looking for info. I found what info was out there, and of course after reading some of that it scared me away too. About a week ago, I sent a general question to the company inquiring about a knife that was on their site, figuring I'd get no reply. Like 3 days after that, I get an email from "William" stating my knife is ready to be shipped and they'd like to paid. I replied that I never ordered a knife, I just asked a question about a knife. The reply was basically do I want the knife or not. I replied that I would not do business with them due to the reputation garnered through a number of knife forums. I received an email after that stating that all of the info on the forums about them is BS, and because it's all lies they refuse to reply to any of it. I wrote back and said if it was all lies why the ostrich-like approach in defending yourself, and, no reply.
