    Colin is an absolute pleasure to do business with. We spoke at the beginning of the week about a couple of knives featured on his site (he's a very knowledgeable man when it comes to knives), I made my decision and paid via bank transfer on Tuesday, Colin shipped my purchase on Wednesday and it is now here with me on Thursday; everything was perfect from start to finish. If you're looking for that special knife, I would definitely recommend checking out what Colin has to offer!

  • Joanna Burgess (Saturday, January 07 23 08:54 pm GMT)

    My best online shopping experience ever. Unbelievably kind and friendly service, so helpful, so generous with his time, Colin is definitely one of those rare breed a true gentleman, who values the quality of customer service he offers, as highly as the quality of the stunning Knives he sells. Postage could not have been faster and every step of the way Colin help my hand. I was buying for my husband as a surprise and Colin helped me pull off the biggest surprise present that I’ve ever managed to get past my gorgeous but very observant husband, ever!!!
    Communication with Colin was next level and the knife itself was immaculate, a thing of great beauty, even to my untrained eye.
    What more can I add other than if you have the smallest concern, don’t, Colin is fabulous and buying from him has been a joy every step of the way.
    Couldn’t have had a more perfect purchasing experience. Thank you so very much Colin it truly has been a pleasure.

    Been a visitor to the site for years, just a resource for beautiful works of art and engineering.

The whole experience with you was positiv, from the very first question to the final delivery. You were very supportive and always there for questions. I'll keep watching your website, and can only recommend you and your website.

    Take care and all the best.
