Absolutely perfect knife as I knew it would be. I’ve never experienced anything but perfection with Chris Reeve knives. This was my first purchase from Northwest Knives though and am extremely pleased with their service! I will definitely buy here again. I am a complete knife junky and have bought from most online dealers. Northwest’s shipping was super quick and felt somewhat more personal as they included a free gift I wasn’t expecting and even had the owners business card paper clipped to the invoice. It’s the small things that make a difference! I live about 30 minutes away from a certain “knife HQ” and have spent more money there than I dare admit. Sometimes I’ll still order online from them as there’s something fun about opening a package for my new blade like a Christmas gift to myself. Even though “knife HQ” is located so close to me and I generally appreciate their service and selection, Northwest’s shipping was much quicker, arrived noticeably sooner, and the packaging and presentation was much better! Well done guys and thank you! If you are on the fence, don’t hesitate. Northwest Knives is the real deal!
