    This is a professional company. On their websites, when you email them it tells you that they will reply within 2-3 business days. All of that would be great if they actually did it. I have contacted them multiple time and called and let them know what I emailed them. They said “we will check” I also sent messages on Facebook..... it shows they see it but again won’t reply. 3 or more years ago if you contacted them they were amazing but lately they have takes a shit on customer service. And yet I keep with them hoping it will get better and yet it doesn’t.... I am stilllll waiting for a reply.

    I’ve never had anything but good experience contacting BKC over the years, whether by email or phone. In fact, just last week I emailed requesting a few replacement clips for various knives. They responded the next day asking me to call them so they could better help me, since (as most everybody knows) they’re now charging a nominal fee for them. Last Wednesday I called and spoke to Jaya (sp?), who was very courteous and helpful, and by Monday I had them in my mailbox in Florida. Doesn’t get much better than that in my opinion.

    I tried using the web contact page twice (for unrelated issues) and didn't get a response, I then tried a direct email and got results within a couple of days.

    I had to do the same with Kershaw, no web response but did with a direct email.

    Next time I will try calling them as I would imagine that would even be better.

    My experience as well regarding using their web contact form. Never got a reply. Next time I'll try a direct email.

    Wait: what is their contact email?

    Being outside the USA, I always email Benchmade and the majority of the time receive a reply within a few days.

    In regards to actual service (completely limited to parts requests), I've always had very good luck, until recently...

    I requested some parts for four different knives, and received incorrect parts for two. Three attempts later, and I still have not received the correct parts (reading comprehension appears to have taken a nosedive as of late). Parts take at least 1 month to arrive, so over four months later, I have a nice selection of duplicate parts for knives I don't have. Thankfully I didn't pay for them.

    I thought they do not ship spare parts at all, asking for a knife to be sent in instead

    I've never had issues with both online and telephone contact with BKC service, either a response within 3 days depending on the method of contact and no longer than 3-5 minute wait, respectively.

    However, I have a friend who's technically challenged and he always has issues with the online contact, but has never had an issue calling them.

    I'm talking about the standard parts they will send out for free (handle screw set, male pivot screw, clips, thumb studs).

    That's correct, if you reside in the States. However, they have sent internal parts internationally on an as-needed basis. Of course YMMV.

    I just got back my custom crooked river that I sent in for the carbon fiber handle upgrade. I mailed in the knife per directions online and filled out the form. I got a prompt response within 2 business days after receipt of my knife with a summary of my request. I was given a 2-3 week turnaround time.

    After about a week or so from the email I received, I got a follow up call so that I could provide payment. Then I received the knife in the mail a little less than 2 weeks later. Everything was done according to my request, including no sharpening of the knife. Below is a picture of the knife.

    I am also outside USA, and have used both the website contact form and [email protected] for pocket clip requests a few times. Every single time, a customer service representative got back to me within 1-3 days. So far, I've only had great experience with Benchmade's customer service.
