    I can vouch for DLT’s customer service.
    Absolutely stellar.

    He has taken apart the knife and sharpened it, so your advice does not stand.

    Wow I felt like re-lived it after reading your post . But only in the quality of my Fulltrack not shipping . My thumb has finally healed “almost” and it’s been 2 or 3 weeks and for and finish was poor , centering was good and btw if you snug the piviot down it can sometimes center up . My piviot ony my 24 new gen was loose out of the box I mean blade wobble loose . Just put some loctite on it and snugged it up and no issues . Other then that exception it’s a perfect example in all areas with a sweet lockbar release . It’s a shame Hinderer is loosing the consistency like they use to have . Mine was hair popping razor sharp out of the box to .

    Haha I've heard about these RHK fans, guess I finally met one. Listening to a first hand experience and learning from it is bad now ? haha some people. Since I don't have the pleasure of buying a $500 knife to see if I like it I was leaning on some other experiences I;m some how deserved of a good riddance....... I even posted requests for reviews and no one seemed to bother, sorry that my reading comprehension bothers you. Good riddance is right, I just saved myself a bunch of money and disappointment it appears.

    Save your butt-hurt for someone who cares.

    There's a difference between learning from an experience and swearing off a brand completely, which you did. And that's sounds like a great decision, honestly.

    I can't say I saw you're request for a review ... and I don't think you should be made to feel bad for your choice ...

    but if Hinderers do interest you I would hate to see you give up on them over a bad experience.

    I have several and all the new Gen 6s have been great ... there will always be a few slip through QC and not be perfect ... and I hate to see anyone got a bad knife of any brand ...

    but it happens ... and as I said DLT is as good as it gets with customer service ... I see my post to the member who received a less than perfect example was too late to have him return it ... if he had DLT would have taken care of him.

    And hopefully if you are interested you'll still get a chance to try one out sometime.

    I posted an open thread asking for RHK and specifically an XM18 review and if the Gen 6 was worth it or not compared to some of the newer knives on the market. I also asked if I would be better off with a CRK instead, I got crickets.

    Thank you, I agree DLT is a good company. If i ever do get my hands on one I will keep that in mind. As I was saying before my next knife was going to be a XM18 but after reading multiple different QC issues with them I was searching for a Blade forums member to give a non jaded point of view scenario and it finally came. So i heeded it and I will invest in another knife instead for next purchase. I didn't say I swore off RHK for life, only for my next purchase. However clearly I am not worthy of an opinion or listening to other experiences.

    no big deal either way

    Yeah I have no doubt DLT would have looked after me and everyone only has good things to say about them, and I did think about returning it before I disassembled and sharpened it. But honestly after all the trouble I had with customs and FedEx I just simply could not be bothered to go through the return process. Plus I just REALLY liked the colour/blade shape combo and knew it was the last available.

    After having it a few days now and constantly playing with it, it is growing on me massively. I'm quite happily overlooking my previous criticisms.
    Unfortunately it's been a bit quiet at work so I haven't had any real world work use for it but I'm sure when things pick up it will serve it's purpose and function just fine.

    ErocSD, at the end of the day, we are all free to make our own choices. I hope you find a fantastic knife whatever route you go down.

    I posted an open string requesting RHK and explicitly a XM18 survey and if the Gen 6 was justified, despite all the trouble or not contrasted with a portion of the more up to date cuts available. I likewise inquired as to whether I would be in an ideal situation with a CRK rather, I got crickets.

    Much thanks to you, I concur DLT is a decent organization. In the event that I ever do get my hands on one I will remember that. As I was stating before my next blade would have been a XM18 yet in the wake of perusing various distinctive QC issues with them I was hunting down a Blade gatherings part to give a non tainted perspective situation and it at long last came. So I noticed it and I will put resources into another blade rather for next buy. I didn't state I swore off RHK forever, just for my next buy. Anyway unmistakably I am not deserving of a feeling or tuning in to different encounters.

    no major ordeal whichever Dafont 192.168.l.l FileHippo

    I feel like I'm dealing with a 30 year old in his Mom's basement and way too much time on his hands Haha.... it sounds like the RHK crew is truly a special bunch, creating fake accounts just to troll someone who doesn't show undying love for their coveted brand. You sure you should be handling sharp objects let alone knives?

    I don't know who you are referring to, but I think you should just leave the thread - it went to shit as soon as you stepped in here. Take your other account with you.

    The basement must be cold today, the thread actually went to shit when you personally attacked me for my response of my next knife purchase and it not coinciding with your opinion. Seriously think before you post, why would I make a fake account and troll myself? I feel stupider having to explain this. See ya and your other account around !

    Anyway, as I said, the thread was fine and you showed up and now it's a mess. Since you keep referring to us Hinderer owners negatively, as some collective, maybe you should just leave it at that.
    Plenty of other threads to hang out in.
