    I have bought from Colin in the past but recently asked asked him to sell a number of knives I no longer wanted on a commission basis, and am extremely pleased with the results. Using a dealer who
    attends shows on a regular basis proved to be the most convenient way to dispose of my knives, and in addition the prices realised were realistic and gratifying. His service has been knowledgeable,
    professional and friendly throughout, and I would not hesitate to recommend Colin and his website to anyone interested in either selling or purchasing knives.

  • Ken Gordon (Wednesday, October 20 10 06:13 pm BST)

    extremly pleasant deal, would do business again

  • Huw Edwards (Saturday, January 22 11 06:36 pm GMT)

  • SimonCollins (Wednesday, April 06 11 09:18 am BST)

    As Huw Edwards says in the previous feedback, the service,trust and courtesy received from Colin in two transactions I have had with him is something which is very rare nowadays. An A1 chap to deal
    with and whom I look forward to dealing with in the future.

  • Mike Wade (Friday, April 29 11 07:11 pm BST)

    Colin has sold a whole collection of knives for me over the past 18 months. I have been absolutely delighted with the efficient way he has handled these sales. In three words: integrity, honesty and
    courtesy. I am a totally satisfied customer - thank you very much Colin, and best wishes to you and for your business in the future. 100% recommended.

  • Allen (Monday, November 21 11 12:44 am GMT)

    Colin you make it all seem so easy!

  • Paul Dulson (Sunday, February 19 12 06:39 pm GMT)

    Met up with Colin today to look at a couple of possible purchases.
    Knives were just as described and needless to say I went home a happy man with two extra additions to my collection.
    Colin's reputation as a top notch dealer is well deserved and I am sure I will be buying more from him the future.

  • Antony Cam (Saturday, February 25 12 09:36 pm GMT)

    use the site again.

  • Ste Carey (Wednesday, March 14 12 10:26 pm GMT)

    I am very pleased with the Alan Wood knife i have just purchased, exactly how described. I'm very pleased with the design of the knife and the fact that it has arrived promptly. I cant wait to put
    this bushcraft knife to the test. Colins communication with me was excellent answering all of my questions; after receiving the knife i asked him what the handle was made from, he doesn't know but he
    is going to contact the maker. A very helpful and professional knife dealer.

  • Iain Lawson (Wednesday, April 04 12 09:36 pm BST)

    I have just recieved a most wonderful Alan Wood Border Bushcraft knife from Colin, and good lord it is nice.
    The picture does in no way do this item justice, the finish is like nothing i have owned and used. Colin was a dream to deal with, a genuine man with knowledge and enthusiasm.
    As others have mentioned, when you deal with Colin, your mails get answered quickly.
    Super guy, superb knife. The real deal.

  • Matt Spencer (Wednesday, May 23 12 04:53 pm BST)

    has proved very accurate & is totally impartial,so impartial in fact he talked me out of a sale the other day because he didnt think it exactly correct for the job i had in mind.And many thanks

    I have to add to the very positive feedback already here by saying that the whole process from finding the website to concluding business has been more than satisfactory.

    which was a nice touch. He followed this up to see if I was happy with the knife which in truth exceeded my expectation in both it's quality and design. Thank you Colin for a great knife.

    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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    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 enough
    A true gent and will def do business again.
    Thanks Colin.

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

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

There has been a PETITION started to oppose the Government's Ban of delivering knives to residential address. I ask all of you to sign up ( and ask your friends & family also ) and hopefully prevent this ban from becoming Law and changing forever our enjoyment and use of fine knives.
