Just a rant. No reflection on the Forge who ship in a timely manner. The long delays & exhorbitant costs are starting to put me off. USPS charged almost $80 for 2 knives which should be delivered within 3-5 Business days. The parcel was picked up on the 3rd & has not left the US as yet. Before that Priority mail. Parcel was picked up on 15th Jan & delivered on 4th of Feb. They used to be better earlier and in comparison my parcels from the UK similar size cost $15 and delivered within 7 days. I don't mind paying the cost if packages are delivered as quoted but this has just really annoyed me. Can anybody suggest an alternate shipping method and are other international buyers having the same problem? Would the Forge be open to other shipping methods if possible? I am only posting this publicly so as to avail of the knowledge base.
