    After reading all the bad reviews on the bladeshop, I canceled my order. It took them at least 3 1/2 weeks to give me my refund after a few calls and emails. Either the owners of this company are mentally retarded or they are crooks. Either way I'd definitely stay away from doing business with them.

    I decided to test my patience to the limit with these phonies last year and waited 19 weeks for a pair of SOG knives! I called 4 times, every time the same story, they were expecting them in on Mon. Do not order from The Blade Shop!

    I've not been to the bladeforums.com for a while now and I am surprised that the Blade Shop has such a bad reputation. It has been years since I've ordered from them (>3 years) but I never had a problem with them at that time. I guess times and service changes and in this instance for the worst. Sorry to hear about all the problems. I definitely will think twice before ordering from them.

    On May 15th, 2009, I placed an order with TheBladeShop.com. for a knife that was advertised as "In Stock". My credit card was charged that day. on the 18th of May, I got an e-mail from them stating that the item was on back order, and it would ship in1 to 2 weeks. On June 15th, I again inquired about my order. Their response was "We do have you on the backorder list for that item, and we will email you when the order ships. I apologize for the delay, but we appreciate your business and patience." On Aug 18th, another inquiry resulted in the same message. It is now Sep 27th, I still have not seen my knife and I am committed to telling the world that TheBladeShop.com should be spelled .con.

    Just reading this pisses me off soo bad. I am really thinking about driving up there to talk to the owner of this company. I live 3 hours away. Seriously, what kind of low life would run a company like this? They can give all the excuses in the world, but it still doesn't make sense. I am going to file a complaint the the FTC right now. One of these days they are going to mess with the wrong person and they'll be out of business. It just a matter of time.

    I've had a Spyderco Citadel on order with them since July. Same deal, backordered, available in 1-2 weeks and still waiting. I ordered a Manix 2 the other day. Shouldn't be a difficult knife to get and same song and dance. Back ordered for "1-2 weeks". I'll never see it I'm sure. I'm close to $300 into them with nothing to show. Learn from my mistakes.

    Finally got my Spyderco Manix 2. About 2 1/2 weeks wait time which, apparently, ain't too bad. I'm still waiting on my Spyderco Citadel I ordered in June :(.

    maybe im the "lucky" one , but i ordered a spyderco knife from thebladeshop.com on 10/28/09 at approx 5:00 pm (i live in NYC) , i received my knife via USPS (i paid for the regular insured shipping) and i received my knife in the afternoon on 10/31/09 , only 3 days later .

    i read the reviews on here (10/29/09) 1 day after i placed the order and i though "shit , im screwed" , so i call them up on 10/30/09 and i ask if my ordered had been shipped , i was told it was shipped the prior day (10/29/09) , so i was put at ease . i got the package yesterday and everything was ok .

    So you are 'fine with them', correct?

    Forgive me if I have mis-construed what you said. I am basing this on you saying "everything was ok", and yes, I realize you may and probably were saying everything was ok with your order in this case.

    Like most people I have a problem with dishonest stores and 'The Blade Shop' plus 'being ok' didn't jibe there with me, and that's my opinion. Good that you received your order and yes you were lucky. I have seen numerous complaints about them on other websites, i have no idea what's wrong with our country these days, seems like so many people and companies can get away with almost anything.

    The Blade Shop / Tactical Gun Armory is a criminal gang who should be hunted down by the FBI.
