    Default Online knife shop with international shipping

    Hi,
    knife prices in Germany are ridiculous.

    For example the cheapest spyderco tenacious I could find online is 48€, which is about 70$

    Can someone recommend me a a USA based shop which offers international shipping to Germany?

    Im mostly interested in Benchmade, Spyderco and SOG.

    Thank you for your recommendations, those prices look way better (even with shipping and taxes).

    Hey Mikra knife price here in Indonesia is crap as well, Cold Steel Urban Pal here cost arround USD.68 which i could buy online from my favorite dealer just for USD.16.95

    www.knifeworks.com is my favorite dealer at this moment. They carry large brand included your favorite brand, so far they have great price all around but there is a CONS ( there is always a CONS ) they have minimum order for international shipment is USD.100 and shipping is $33.95 for the first pound and $4.50 per additional pound ( EMS and they only use this method no exception ).

    So far i'm quite happy doing business with them, fast shipping,cheapest price all around and the most important thing is they accept Paypal. But IMHO their communication is suck, make sure when you purchase your knife because when you want to modify your oder after complete check out it won't be nice for you. I always order from knifeworks in a group ( with some of my folks ) to trick the shipping cost.

    New Graham Knives (newgraham.com) has been known to ship internationally. They are one of my favorite dealers.

    I have just put through my second order to them, I was very impressed with my first order.

    I would recommend:
    www.knifecenter.com
    www.knivesshipfree.com
    www.newgrahamknives.com
    www.agrussell.com

    As mentioned knifecentre is very good. They get the order shipped out very fast and they have a good selection.

    If knivesshipfree has what you want then they are a good place to order from. Their prices are good and the shipping is very reasonable (I paid US$12 to get a Spyderco Endura 4 shipped to New Zealand and the knife price was similar to any other deals I found).

    New Graham Knives are also good to deal with. I got my Becker BK-7 from them.

    A.G. Russell is always worth a look. I bought some of their own brand of knives and the little suckers came 'shaving sharp'. One was the 'ultimate pen knife' for US$20 with VG-10 blade the little 1.5" knife is very small and very light and sharp enough to shave the hairs off my arm with.
    So many lights, so little money (cause I spent it on lights). I'm not afraid of the dark, the dark is afraid of ME!

    Sorry, I did say hold on to your wallet!

    Bloody good shop, not the cheapest, but great customer sevice. The guys that run it are really nice chaps. It's worse for me in the UK, they offer next day del for very little. So if I see something I like, I can have it in my hands the next day.....

    Great if that won't be a problem for you, since i refer to your post i thought you just might just want to get something like Tenacious

    Additional info, they will proceed your order and ship within 1 - 2 days ( normal work day ). One more thing, when you browsing around their store please keep in mind to keep yourself under control because their site is really tempting ( my last order with them is 3x Benchmade 10700 Nagara with tempting @ USD 39.95 tag ) !!!

    For local price comparison, the German price is better than the Indonesia price

    At the end, will you let us know which shop you'll be choose ?

    Wow that's a big amount of difference! And I though we had it hard in the UK!

    Something you should check before making a big order, is the shipping insured and what is the customer service like in the event of a del going missing/lost? It would be a shame to go for the cheapest deal and then have it go missing with you not having any come back.

    So, what I'm saying is check the small print, then check it again!

    Also, let us know how you get on, the more feedback the better for us all.

    I know the Knifecenter (2nd cheapest) uses FedEx with track & trace - I am pretty sure that would be insured. My current order has left Honolulu and is listed as "In Transit". I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

    Agree, the most important thing when make big order abroad is the insured package! Shit could be happened every time, we don't like something like that happened to us but it just could happened every time !

    For your information that's another things i like from knifeworks, they've included the insurance cost on their shipping cost !!

    its bad here too.. all nice stuff is expensive..

    so roughly and quickly looking for same set up of items (possiby they are not the cheapest just the 1st that i found)

    aegis (want one) vex (not for me) tenacious (got one) sharpmaker (need one) they would be over 400$ without shipping costs if bought here in Finland.

    aegis 89euros
    vex 69e
    tenacious 55e
    sharper 75e. (and 1e about 1.45$.. so they are something like 415$ plus about 20$ shipping)

    and ordering them all from overseas/usa in one shipment would also increase the total by 25% or so (taxes and vat etc)

    the value limit is something like 70 dollars or so.. under that i should be fine.. so there is a definate reason to buy stuff from usa.

    offtopic: hmm ..i should of asked the sharpmaker for xmas preset to myself. damit! its too late now.. it wont get delivered in time.

    I would email knivesshipfree.com they would probably be able to figure out a decent price on shipping. I know lighthound.com has the shipping down as well.

    I think US knife/flashlight price will be more expensive in the most country due the high shipping cost and tax but except Singapore.

    Price in Singapore is still OK, for comparison i could get LX2 at Ebay for SGD.285 include shipping ( exclude duty tax when it deliverd to me). Last time i saw LX2 was SGD.330 while in Indonesia was SDG.367,14 ( 1 SGD = Rp.7000 )

    I'll have to try them.

    The ones I have tried so far:
    knifecenter - 2 orders, both sent quickly - good service, good selection.

    knivesshipfree - 1 order, sent quickly, cheap shipping.

    Newgrahamknives - 2 orders, both sent quickly - good service.

    AG Russell - 1 order, sent quickly - good service.

    Cutleryshoppe - 1 order, received acknowledgment when I placed order but nothing since, my CC hasn't been charged yet, I did send an E-Mail inquiry but got no answer yet. The order was placed 1 week ago and the E-Mail sent 5 days ago. So far I am not impressed, especially compared to the others that I have dealt with. Next time I would probably pay a bit more to deal with a different company. This order included a Spyderco Military and they do have the best price on Spyderco knives from what I have found. I am not too sure of whether to wait or send them another E-Mail asking to cancel the order.

    Has anyone else bought from Cutleryshoppe? If so then what was your experience like?

    Whatever you do, DO NOT use Bladecrazy.com.

    The guy screwed me out of $48 for two Ritter RSK Mk5s.
    He (Ilan Berkner) Didnt send them, never answers messages via the website, never answers emails, & as I waited longer than 45days, paypal dont wanna know, so this tw@t got away with my money.

    Update: I decided to cancel this order, my Christmas spending was loading up my CC too much anyway. I feel that I could have just waited patiently and would have received my order fine, possibly coming up to Christmas was leading to a longer than usual delay. They could easily be prioritizing the domestic orders as they would definitely arrive before Christmas if sent out promptly.

    But the fact is that my Knifecentre orders were sent well within 24 hours of me placing the order and the 3 other places I have ordered from have sent the knives within a couple of days. When your order hasn't been sent 9 days after ordering and no explanation as to why then it just doesn't seem to be quite the same buying experience. If you aren't in a huge hurry (and it isn't almost Christmas) then they may well be worth buying from - their Spyderco prices really are pretty good.

    I have heard good things about:
    http://www.chestnutridgeknifeshop.com/
    and
    http://www.ragweedforge.com/
    These could be good sites to add to your list.
