    Very informative and well formulated mail correspondance all the way. Colin made it really easy for me to decide on which knife to purchase. Easy payment and super fast trackable delivery to Sweden. Outstanding service in every aspect and I would highly recommend buying your knife through Colin!

    Thank you Colin!

  • Alan Mundy (Tuesday, January 22 19 12:26 pm GMT)

    I can’t rate and recommend Colin’s service and support highly enough. Having purchased a couple knives from him he has consistently been incredibly forthgiving of his time and knowledge. It was a real education and pleasure to spend some time with him and his subject matter expertise and passion shone through. It also ensured I had total confidence that I was making the right choices. Thanks again Colin, I look forward to dealing with you soon when I add the next one to my collection.

  • Rob S (Sunday, January 13 19 12:16 pm GMT)

    Made my first purchase with Colin this week. Excellent service from start to finish even over the hectic Christmas period. I was able to reserve the knife with no trouble and at the mention of preferring a left handed sheath, it was whisked back to the maker and in my hands within a few days. Can sum up as efficient, easy and thoroughly decent to deal with. I will have every confidence in ordering from Colin in future.

  • Harry. Surrey (Wednesday, December 12 18 01:01 pm GMT)

    It was with complete surprise that I found myself discussing with Colin, the purchase of an Alan Wood Damascus knife. " I do have a 'cracker' but it is not the shape you want and doesn't have a sheath either.." said Colin. A week went by as I ruminated over the pictures before deciding it was to be mine! Colin then had Alan make a sheath, which exceeded my all my expectations. Yes - the knife is a 'cracker' and I'm loving it more and more each day. As always, Colin acted with courtesy, candour and "olde world" virtues, a rare commodity in this day and age and the design and quality of Alan's work leaves me speechless. I am so glad I listened to Colin and was able to avail myself to this treasure. Who said, "Christmas doesn't come early ?". An enormous Thank you !

  • David W. (Saturday, September 08 18 09:22 am BST)

    Hi Colin.
    Knife received. Very, very pleased with the knife, sheath and service. All excellent.
    Thank you.

  • Richard Winch (Monday, August 27 18 08:15 pm BST)

    I would like to say that this company and the owner is one of the best I have come across .
    Personal treatment, excellent question response, all honest answers, and received my order bang on time , and I’m awkward due to my life , thank you colin !

  • Steve. TEXAS. (Saturday, August 25 18 03:39 pm BST)

    This was my first purchase and it was a pleasure dealing with Colin. The Pena knife was exactly as described and shipping to the United States was quick. I would not hesitate to purchase another High End knife from Colin. Thank you !

  • Andy Williams (Friday, August 24 18 02:57 pm BST)

    I recently bought a rare Ebel 1911 Discovery from Colin I'd previously spent years searching for a new or nearly new one with no success especially one in A1 condition until one evening I stumbled on to the Custom Knife website and found this stunning piece. The description sounded to good to be true but it's exactly how it was described, on my first enquiry I knew I was dealing with an honest and genuine person who was extremely helpful and courteous, the watch is now proudly sitting in my collection and I adore it. Thank you Colin it was a pleasure doing business with you a true gentleman.

  • Pedro Spain (Tuesday, July 31 18 11:39 am BST)

    He always has first class knives.
    Fast and safe shipping.
    Excellent communication with Colin.
    Highly recommend international seller.

  • Harry A. (Friday, July 20 18 08:54 pm BST)

    Having decided I needed a quality knife to use in the field, I turned to Colin for advice. There were many choices on his website but some were too good for field use and Colin recommended a new Alan Wood Classic Hunter. The knife was just what I needed although the sheath was not what I was used to. Lo and behold, Colin spoke to Alan and a different sheath was duly made and supplied without any fuss.
    Throughout the whole process, both Colin and Alan acted with enormous courtesy, honesty and "olde worlde" virtues rarely encountered in this day and age.
    Would I recommend Colin? Yes, of course and without hesitation. It has been an absolute pleasure and I will be delighted to continue trading with Colin.

  • Chris Marsh (Friday, July 20 18 04:18 am BST)

    Thanks Collin for a fantastic hard to find knife!! I will be watching your site daily to see whats new. Great communication and very fast shipping to the U.S. I was surprised how fast I received my knife. Thanks again!

  • Marksteen Adamson (Tuesday, May 22 18 11:01 pm BST)

    Absolutely fantastic and honest service. Finally got my dream knife, the Woodlore, that Colin found for me and I’m over the moon. Thanks Colin for all your help and advice.
    Marksteen

  • Gerry. Dorset. (Sunday, April 29 18 06:53 pm BST)

    Collected the knives this morning. Both of the knives are above my expectations, better than your descriptions. They are both absolutely stunning! Many thanks.

  • Stu (Thursday, March 22 18 12:22 am GMT)

    Colin is a real gentleman and cares about his customers and is always willing to help and offer advice. I really would recommend Colins website and purchasing from him to anyone who is looking for the very best British quality and craftsmanship of knives. If it was not for Colin’s help to work with me I wouldn’t have the bushcraft knife of my dreams and I’m forever greatful to a colin for that and I won’t forget that. I highly regard Colin and trust him as he has trusted me and I will definitely be back very soon. Thank you for working with me Colin !

  • Bobby B. in Virginia (Tuesday, November 28 17 05:47 pm GMT)

    Colin is trustworthy and an extreme professional. No worries when dealing with him. He knows knives and he is very pleasant to deal with. Fast dispatch to the United States and good follow up. I will continue to obtain knives from him!

  • Ian. Kent. (Wednesday, October 04 17 02:57 pm BST)

    I am absolutely delighted with the knife and can't wait to put it to use.
    Congratulations on your website - I'm sure you have a long list of grateful and satisfied customers and I am delighted to be on that list.
    Again, many thanks.
    Ian.

  • Bobby (Monday, September 11 17 07:27 pm BST)

    Colin is Brilliant!
    Really professional and great to work with. Super fast dispatch to the United States and the knives do not disappoint. I am going to buy more from him soon!

  • Donald Van Hoyweghen (Wednesday, July 19 17 10:01 am BST)

    I made a request for a very rare knife and Colin made it happen in no time.In my opinion one of the best and most honest businessman around.I will definitely do business again and recommend Colin highly to everyone.
    Thank you sir.
    Donald from Belgium.

  • Stephen Bradley (Sunday, May 21 17 01:16 pm BST)

    Colin has now sold the last of three knives on a commission basis that I sent him. It was great dealing with Colin, trustworthy, reliable and courteous throughout. I would recommend Colin any day. Well done Sir.

  • John Spencer DsM. (Saturday, May 20 17 01:54 pm BST)

    This is the first time I have purchased from Colin but after this experience it will not be the last. You are a true Gent Colin in every sense of the word. Nothing was too much trouble and absolutely first class service. A real pleasure to do business with you and looking forward to many more purchases. Thanks again.

  • Rob Harris (Thursday, May 18 17 10:59 am BST)

    This is the first time I have had dealings with Colin, but it certainly won't be the last, this gentleman went above and beyond with his customer service, especially when I had specific posting requests.
    I can't recommend him enough. Also his description of his products are bang on.
    Thanks again.

  • Neale Jenkinson (Saturday, May 06 17 06:42 pm BST)

    I had the pleasure of meeting Colin at the Northern Shooting Shooting Show,I had three quality knives I wished to sell,he carried out a thorough professional appraisal and followed it up with a very fair and acceptable offer,it was refreshing to deal with a thouroghly pleasant and decent gentleman.His table was stocked with a great and varied selection of excellent quality blades,all in superb condition,as good as I have ever seen.A pleasure to do business with,thankyou.

  • Darren (Wednesday, May 03 17 10:18 pm BST)

    Highly recommended.Bought several knives from Colin and always had excellent service.
    Recently acquired a CKHunter and can't speak highly enough about it. New favourite knife. Thanks

  • Adrian Newton (Sunday, April 30 17 07:32 am BST)

    I can't sing Colin's praises any higher. I sold a knife through him recently and I have to say how happy I am with the resulting sale. Colin achieved a price higher than I expected and in less time than I expected. For me the icing on the cake was the quality on communication. Colin was always courteous and professional. What a great person to deal with. Highly recommend.

  • Mark Knott (Saturday, February 18 17 08:48 pm GMT)

    Absolutely blown away with the one to one service provided with delivery times that defy time itself. Colin is an old school trustworthy type which is very rare nowadays. look forward to do business again. Thanks Colin.

  • LALIAT Frédéric (Tuesday, February 14 17 04:18 pm GMT)

    Hello.
    I'm Fred from France. I ordered my Bayley S4 knife from Colin and it was a super easy transaction.
    I emailed Colin for some questions regarding the knife and the procedure to pay and I received a kind answer as fast as it was possible.
    Then I made my payment and the knife was shipped the exact same day and received few days later. A great packaging for a great knife. All in all, an excellent transaction, and Colin is really kind. I didn't have some special requests but I'm sure you can ask and he will try to do his best to meet your expectations. First time I was ordering such a piece and I'm really glad with it.
    Thank you Colin.
    Fred from France

  • T. Hayes (Sunday, January 29 17 06:14 pm GMT)

    Hi Colin.
    Knife received and I am delighted with it.
    Many thanks.

  • Simon James (Sunday, January 01 17 05:11 pm GMT)

    Would love to thank Colin so much for sourcing and purchasing a vintage cold steel magnum tanto on my behalf. We had never met or done business together and yet he pulled out the stops and trusted in me and got this beautiful knife for me. He made payment very easy and his postage was quick and great. Upon opening it, iy truly was as Colin described. As new and immaculate. He really made a dream come true. I cannot recommend Colin and Customknife.co.uk enough
    A true gent and will def do business again.
    Thanks Colin.
    Simon

  • Ian. Essex. (Friday, November 25 16 09:26 am GMT)

    Hi, Colin.
    Knife arrived today and couldn't be happier. Many thanks for an excellent service - you are a credit to the trade.

  • Patrick M. AUSTRALIA. (Monday, September 05 16 10:52 pm BST)

    An absolute pleasure dealing with a true Gentleman. Colin was kind, informed, prompt and courteous answering my questions before, during and after my purchase.
    Rarely experienced this level of care, matched only by the quality of the knives Colin re-homes.
    Colin handled my International shipping to Australia flawlessly, even arrived early.
    Thank you Colin, look forward to the next purchase

  • Huw Edwards (Tuesday, August 30 16 12:16 pm BST)

    I've been buying from Colin for some years now. The process remains faultless. My recent Puma is a great addition to my collection. Many thanks, Colin.

  • Graham (Friday, July 29 16 08:08 pm BST)

    I had a knife to sell and contacted Coilin. He sold the knife within hours of listing it on his website. Colin is a pleasure to do business with.

  • Julian (Thursday, April 28 16 07:05 pm BST)

    I just received my knife from Colin and wanted to note what great service he has provided. I gave him an outline spec for the knife I wanted and he came back with the perfect knife. I'd be very happy
    to recommend him to anyone and I'm sure I'll be buying more from him!

  • Scott (Sunday, April 24 16 02:12 pm BST)

    I'm a US customer, and Colin provided great customer service. The transaction and shipping were easy, and the knife was exactly as described. I will be back.

  • FRANK JONES (Sunday, April 03 16 07:48 pm BST)

    I found Colin's website purely by accident. Not having any pre-conceptions about what I was looking for, I thought I would know it if I saw it. In fact, I found two knives and another that did not
    show as for sale. I emailed Colin and soon had all the answers I needed. Colin has a way of putting you at ease and gives you sound advice to make your decision to buy or not. He will go that bit
    extra by telling you the story behind what you are interested in, if there is one. I came, I saw and came away with 3 knives.
    Would I recommend Colin, yes without hesitation. My transaction took less than 24hrs to complete from finding what I wanted to dropping on my mat at home.
    Thanks Colin.

  • Ken Paviour (Thursday, March 31 16 08:33 pm BST)

    I had 2 knives to sell and chose to use Colin's site because of the good feedback. I can say that both sales were completed as smoothly as I could have wished (one outright sale, the other on
    commission)and I am really pleased with the prices obtained. Colin is both trustworthy and a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Valerie and Jason (Thursday, January 28 16 05:47 am GMT)

    We found Colin's website and were very impressed. We are in Northern California, USA but Colin responded very quickly and the transaction was a breeze. Our rare and gorgeous Bowie knife arrived
    promptly and was well packed. We will be watching his site in the future. Thanks, Colin!

  • Dan Lane (Wednesday, December 23 15 01:24 am GMT)

    Very friendly service, and a really fantastic knife, very pleased. You won't be disappointed.

  • Wai Lau (Wednesday, December 16 15 05:37 pm GMT)

    Outstanding! My first time dealing with Colin. Cant say it be my last. Great service and a greater human being.
    Thank you for everything and for my new toy. Trustworthy 110%

  • John MacDonald (Thursday, December 03 15 06:23 pm GMT)

    Colin is "TOP SHELF" !!! This was my first time buying from him and it was great.He is "THE KNIFE WHISPERER" as far as I am concerned. COMPLETELY TRUSTWORTHY!!!

  • Paul Dulson (Wednesday, November 18 15 04:13 pm GMT)

    Another great deal with Colin and very happy with the latest addition to my collection.
    Great service from start to finish.

  • Ian (Friday, October 16 15 07:41 am BST)

    This is the first time I've dealt with Colin and the service was professional, friendly and efficient. Great knife and accurately described. I would recommend Colin to anyone looking for a high
    quality knife.

  • Pedro S. - SPAIN (Thursday, September 10 15 10:50 pm BST)

    sales service! I'd recommend him to any avid collector! Thanks Colin

  • Mike (Tuesday, June 16 15 10:55 pm BST)

    Hi. Just a quick thank you for your service - really pleased with the Pat Mitchell knife.
    Many thanks,

  • pauk Hodder (Friday, June 12 15 11:41 am BST)

    I would like to thank Colin so much for finding me an excellent example of a Puma White Hunter in Mint condition. Bought as a gift for my Father-in-laws 70th. I am so happy with this. Great
    communication throughout! Highly recommended indeed

  • Richard Thornton (Sunday, March 01 15 10:59 am GMT)

    I would like to thank Colin for the excellent service I have received.
    Having asked him to look out for a bushcraft knife for me, he discussed my needs and gave me some sage advise on possible alternatives. After only a few days he had found the perfect knife for my
    requirements.
    Great service, communication & price what more could you aske for? Highly recommended.

  • Simon Collins (Saturday, January 24 15 08:50 pm GMT)

    I have dealt with Colin various times and talked to him at shows, I have to say that I think he is one of the nicest blokes I have ever met, very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I could not
    recommend him highly enough and hope to deal with him for many years to come. Keep up the great work Colin!

  • Trevor Hawkins (Friday, December 12 14 07:00 pm GMT)

    I have recently purchased a knife from Colin, and the whole process was brilliant. The knife is fabulous, as was Colin\'s patience, help, advice, and service. Purchasing from New Zealand, I was a bit
    nervous, but I needn\'t have worried. The knife arrived promply, well packaged, and exactly as described. A real pleasure to deal with Colin! Many thanks
