    :D This was actually from the first batch. Ordered in August 2013 and received in March 2015, and nothing paid up front.

    Back in those days, it was actually possible to get a knife from Dan with a bit of patience. I still have a Monster Nessie and a WSS also bought directly from him.

    I'd say that was the time when complaints were starting to be heard with some regularity, and it's gone down hill since.

    The detente on my folder is on the weaker side, but it's nothing that bothers me. Easy to wrist flick, but unlikely to shake open unless you're really trying. Probably not safe to import to Canada. Given it was the first batch of folders he ever made, I think he did a good job.

    In the early 2010s, he was one of the first people to make 3V blades and nicely contoured, bead-blasted micarta handles widely available. The industry has since caught up, but his knives are still good products.

    Just got this Amare Paragon in from my buddy... pretty nifty slipjoint mechanism, let's the closing force be way higher than opening due to the different set of springs:cool:

    Probably not everyone's cup of tea here but I just got this handful of vintage blades in. I've got the lockback in Ebony (middle one) in my pocket today.
