^ You've got to be freaking kidding me! What could possibly go wrong.....??? FWIW: In all of my ++++ transactions I've had here, I've had only one knife go missing; & guess what it was shipped in? Surprise, a USPS plastic envelope. In my case, the USPS stamped the envelope with a red "no contents inside" stamp. It was shipped from a very reputable member here. I contacted him later that evening, & he offered to reimburse me immediately. I told him to hold off...went in & checked with my local USPS the next day...& low & behold, they found my Protech TR-4, tightly sealed up inside another plastic enveloped which was balled up & looked like a big softball. ^ You forgot the "USPS First Class" part...any way he can make an extra buck or two...on his flip. Anyone who would ship a knife inside an envelope, isn't very bright to begin with....so it's no surprise, that this person didn't have the decency to come here & present his side..... ^ +1 ^ I'm more of a reader, too! I only read the 1st & last pages here...my advice to you: just ignore any of the naysayer's here- they're not worth your time. You are 100% in the right here, Dyavorsky! Ship a knife in a brown envelope, no insurance, First Class...& no tape. Massive failure, in every regard!
