    but if your only making 3 types of knives how good can your business really be doing if you cant even afford a inventory. I asked him for a refund more than once and he refused you would think if hes selling knives he would be more then happy to refund my money and sell it to the next buyer

    Yes he is indeed liar. Now he says he didn't have correct blueprints lol ,so that means he didn't make exact correct knives before right ? As he was claiming. How can someone just make knives by blueprints that are not even verified ?
    Another thing is that he is rude and disrespectful. If he was honest about his knives people would like him and he would still be doing it. But no he will call his knives tribute knives lol. First he said is ok to copy knives from the makers that are no longer with us (no u can't) and all the sudden he is cooping makers that are still making knives . He just doesn't understand that he can't do whatever he wants. I called him out on his FB page. But instead he deleted all my comments because he new he couldn't explained his actions. BSK= No go for me !

    Hopefully you can get everything made right and scrape his customer service off the bottom of your shoe.

    And that whole "doing you a favor" attitude is one of the most disrespectful things in the world.

    Close up shop Britt, thanks.

    Update on orders. And a reply to BF.
    Just wanted to give everyone an update on FB's.
    We're super sorry for the delay and are working as fast as we can. Thanks everyone for waiting and being so patience. It will be totally worth it.

    We feel it's important to address some BS that is out there right now.

    ( None of this is directed to our customers, this is just to help clear up any misinformation)

    Some have waited a long time for their FB. This is true!!!
    But we emailed everyone of you asking if you would be willing to wait while we re-order all the supplies and remake all the FB's to the movie correct FB's.

    The goal was to give you the most correct FB model we can make and you can get, without it costing an arm an leg.
    This was our gift to our buyers. Of course we didn't have to do that, but we wanted to give the most correct version we could do for everyone.... We did this because we knew that everyone who placed an order with us, really wanted a 100% correct version not a "close to it" version. How would you have felt if you got your "old style FB" from us and then saw that we corrected it? You would then have to spend that same amount of money to buy another knife all over again. AND ... the re-sale value of the "old style" would not be great for you after the NEW version came out.
    This was all done for Rambo knife fans....

    For the record: we paid out of our own pocket 250.00 per FB knife to remake for each buyer..
    Lets be honest too, not one person making these knives for the fans has done this either.
    They have made close versions for a large amount of money, then changed the designs and re-charge you. We did not do that. Should be speaking volumes to everyone.

    None of our knives have ever broken, or came back AND we have been told by many that our Rambo knives are better than the other Tribute knives. Never mind all the 100% positive press we have had over 4 1/2 yrs.

    Now, some people have gone onto Blade Forum and have told half truths and out right lies.



    About PA on Blade forum..
    This guy ordered a FB knife, we made it and it was 95% done. we offered him to upgrade his order and we would pay for it. He said YES!!! We also took 150.00 off the price for him, so he got a 650.00 knife for 500.00.
    He also sent in his BSK mission knife for a full refurbish, We did it for free due to his long wait, and we paid for the shipping...

    So, we paid to upgrade his FB-250.00
    We paid for his refurbish Mission( 150.00) and the shipping(15.00) and we took 150.00 off the price for him.. Of course he didn't say any of this BA and only presented a false one side view.
    And he got his FB...
    We offered to exchanged it but he cried like a girl and said no. This guy tried to tell us that bead blasted 5160 steel don't rust very easy... Yeah, he is the only guy in the world who knows of that steel because no other person on earth has heard of it. He also tried to tell us carbon steel don't rust that easy.. ?
    He seems to be struggling with the facts and his poor interpretation of the facts. This should be clearly noted.


    Jon K on Blade forum.
    This guy lied about us, we contacted a lawyer and he corrected his statement ( and we have all the emails to prove it ) He has now admitted to lying about us on BF.

    We don't know anyone else who has posted on BF, of course it's easy to post lies on a forum while not contacting us at all....Or not leaving your real name.

    Some if not the same people have started to email our friends, family, and knife dealers because of the delay. To be honest, that is just fucking unacceptable. Why not call us, come complain to us...??

    A time back a guy named AW came to us with "the most correct FB specs around". This guys name is well known in the Rambo knife world.
    He came to us, offered to give us this specs because he " believed in what we were doing and not what those greedy other guys where charging". So he sent the specs in, we emailed people about this guy, asking if what if was saying was true and we were told it was. He claimed to NOT be friends with other Lile tribute makers... He also told us not to tell Farid, Hans, or the new Lile company about the specs he was giving us, because they all asked him for it and he said no.

    What we didn't know is that this guy was saying the same thing to Farid and Hans without us knowing it.

    So we trusted this guy and those who told us about him. We made the FB ( from his specs ) and made public claims based off his world. And wouldn't you know he was all full of lies and those who knew, didn't warn us at all.... At the end, Farid, Hans , and our FB were all different from each others.
    And while we were all doing this, guess who was working on the real correct FB knife????
    Yep, same guy and he really was friends with certain Lile tribute knife makers....

    Of course we confronted him about this and he denied it all... So in the end we were all left with incorrect versions while he and his friends had correct ones. Funny how this experts FB knife is not the same as the NEELY FB.... Some colors starting to show....


    Then we had a bad run in with a guy Named Aidy D. we have been getting a lot of bad press.
    Aidy D. is the guy who was emailing people on facebook asking private questions about us, once we confronted him, all this started.....

    This also seems to be happening only after we corrected the First Blood knife. Before this, everything was smooth sailing. But the very week we started to correct it, people came out of the wood work.. Seems very strange to us.

    Just 2 weeks ago, some very petty person turned us into EBAY because we call our knives " Jimmy Lile TRIBUTE knives"... Because you know, after all they aren't???



    We share all this to say...... Ummmmmmmmmm we don't think we are the one who should be getting a bad name....
    Don't believe anything anyone says, just come to us,call,email or come to the house. It can't get any easier than that...

    So, if you're unhappy waiting, we will gladly offer up to you the original knife you ordered.
    In the end history will prove that we really did this for fans and our actions proved it.
    When you sell knives for far less than the "other guys" you get far more orders, so of course the fucking wait time is gonna grow....

    So in recap, sorry for the wait, we are moving as fast as we can.... Your waiting has cost you, but making the knife cost us too. So we see it as a partnership.
    Knives being worked on now.

    For clarification.I was making the FB tribute knife before AW, Britt or most of the tribute FB makers started making them, I have never been offered any design or drawings on the first blood knife, I had to recreated the FB knife through my own research.


    if you all take a look at all the original 100 numbered FB knives you will all see none of them are exactly the same, there is a reason behind that, ‘they were all handmade’ they were ‘hand ground’ , the very first 100 numbered FB knives were all hand ground Not CNC ground like some of the tribute FB makers are offering and saying they are handmade. If you look at it this way you will all see this is a pointless argument since all original 100 ‘handmade numbered FB’s’ had small variations.

    He came to us, offered to give us this specs because he " believed in what we were doing and not what those greedy other guys where charging". So he sent the specs in, we emailed people about this guy, asking if what if was saying was true and we were told it was. He claimed to NOT be friends with other Lile tribute makers... He also told us not to tell Farid, Hans, or the new Lile company about the specs he was giving us, because they all asked him for it and he said no.

    What we didn't know is that this guy was saying the same thing to Farid and Hans without us knowing it.

    Sengvin- That was full out a bunch of "you're welcome" BS. Where would us lowly BFC'ers be without BSK's gift to the community? That guy has never educated himself on the fine art of PR or apologies. I cannot stand that kind of attitude. Quit rationalizing your wrongdoings BSK.

    And to post BS about Farid is just lame.

    All Sengvin did was to cut and paste direct from the BSK website.
    If you have an issue with it's content, speak to the person who wrote it.....BSK.
    I'm pretty sure Farid is not happy at him suggesting that he may have used outside assistance in his FB knives.

    This was all done for Rambo knife fans....
    We have paid for most of the shipping on the late knives, many got free sheaths ( because of the delay ) and lots of people got discounts on their next order... Yet no one seems to mention this.
    Seems like a pretty good deal to us. We do this because we want to honor our buyers.

    For the record: we paid out of our own pocket 250.00 per FB knife to remake for each buyer..

    And he got his FB...
    We offered to exchanged it but he cried like a girl and said no ( I think we offered 3 times ). This guy tried to tell us that bead blasted 5160 steel don't rust very easy...

    He seems to be struggling with the facts and his poor interpretation of the facts. This should be clearly noted.


    Jon K on Blade forum.( soft tail )
    This guy lied about us, we contacted a lawyer and he corrected his statement ( and we have all the emails to prove it ) He has now admitted to lying about us on BF.

    Then you have these fucking fags-Sengvin( Jan Vasicek a total loser. )- Rxgremlin ( don't know this fucking loser)

    of course it's easy to post lies on a forum while not contacting us at all....Or not leaving your real name. Perry is a fucking liar and so is Jan, matter of fact, Jan has his nose so far up Aidy ass he has become his boyfriend. You should really learn how to think for yourself Jan, instead of repeating what others tell you to, but I guess that is what you do when you cant think for yourself.
    Why complain to a forum and not to us personally???

    Some if not the same people have started to email our friends, family, and knife dealers because of the delay. To be honest, that is just fucking unacceptable. Why not call us, come complain to us...??

    And while we were all doing this, guess who was working on the real correct FB knife????

    Wow what to say to that ? I guess just that you are very professional and You know how to control yourself !

    Well let me clarify that : I don't know Aidy well he is my friend on facebook but so is many other people I don't know that well ! I haven't spoke to Aidy once about this issue ! So far we have exchange about three messages about knives for sale !

    I do think for myself very much ! I'm not repeating anything unless I came to the same conclusion but that is just called coincidence :) AND yes I did complained to (well I was trying to get some answers from you) you but all u said was "If u don't like us don't post on my FB and than u deleted all my posts that where spot on and because u did delete them it only confirms that I was right !!!

    Who do you think you're fooling ?

    And one last thing about Britt G.
    I personally think that he is just sad guy who was rejected by knife community (For obvious reasons) and can't just get over it

    So you're saying he removed his name from the check you wrote, and made it out to his girlfriend? I would think this would be a perfect case for you to go to the bank and file a fraud charge to have the payment rescinded.
