    You seem upset.

    If I understand correctly:
    You bought a knife. There was a delay in shipping. You sent an email bringing it to their attention, and they responded to your email by apologizing for the delay and then shipped your knife with tracking info.

    When did you place your order?

    Sorry about your blade not arriving on time.. This can be hard for us, myself included. I am now getting used to services of all kinds being later on occasion with all that is happening these days. I would imagine that blade purchases are picking up at this time. I have never had a blade late from Blade HQ, however they do not confirm orders or at least I never get confirmation of a order. A couple months back this happened and I thought there was a problem with the order process and ordered the knife again. Ended up with (2) of them now as they never sent tracking info either. To me this is a weakness that I do not care for. Usually they are pretty darn good with shipping times though. TD

    As another member asked, you need to provide some more details. Such as date ordered, date you emailed, etc.

    This doesn't help much without knowing an order date. My experience with a variety of online shops guns,knives, Amazon and eBay has been anywhere from same day shipping to a week getting a product shipped. Then experiencing delays with shipping couriers.

    Even before covid, BHQ was consistently slow to ship (based on my limited experience with them & the multiple complaints seen here).

    I think we are supposed to guess how long they waited to ship based on how mad he is.
    Considering the number of insults hurled toward BHQ I'd like to put my guess in at: 2 weeks ?

    I know they ship slower than some, not quite amazon non prime slow but not as fast as knifecenter or whitemountianknives.
    I've only ordered from them 1 or 2 times and they shipped within 3-4 business days

    @BladeHQ ?

    Not much here to go on but they at least deserve to be tagged in the thread.

    Pretty harsh for slow shipment.

    They didn’t steal from you? Knife was as described? Did you have any follow up discussion after you emailed them to ask for an explanation or just race here to bash them?

    I haven’t bought from them in a long time, but fortunately never had any issues. I would imagine if you sent them an email voicing your frustration (in a calmer tone) you would find out if they were having some sort of issue, and if they didn’t reply then your concerns would be validated.

    I always found Cam to be pretty customer service oriented, and while times may have changed I’d at least reach out to them and ask them for their version of the situation.

    Didn't the Spyderco Tanto just drop middle of last week? Yeah, a week is a long time but it was likely a 500 or 1000 piece run. Lot of knives to get out the door

    This. Bought on Jul 27 or 28, shipped on Aug 7, 10 days delay with in apology. OK in my book, in these crazy times.

    I have no problems with them though the last six years, so your order was a little late! I would say no big deal and no reason to ding them, like said we all must live with f...king virus .

    I noticed a change as in not being notified of shipping and slow to finally ship.
    This started right after the covid shutdown.

    The OP certainly seemed accepting of someone's willingness to apologize in this thread.... :oops:

    I know I don't have a dog in this fight, but damn if that didn't make me chuckle a bit :confused:

    glad to hear you got a response and it shipped! with something that sells out so quickly, I'd be worried about getting a response that they were sold out and could not send me one.

    ^ Patience is a virtue. :rolleyes:

    I personally, have never had any issues when dealing with Blade HQ.

    And I hope that you don't mind me suggesting this:
    You really ought to consider enrolling in some type of educational continuation program....with a focus on perhaps an English 101 & English Composition class.

    They offer some wonderful GED programs, online. :thumbsup: :)

    I mind... perhaps you should consider enrolling in a anti-trolling program.

    You have been warned 15 times for insults/rude behavior or trolling of other members... it's way past time for you to take a break from the forums.

    When you come back, if this type of behavior continues your break will become permanent.

    Hello Robert,

    Sorry to hear about your frustration with BHQ.

    When you order from other US distributors, have you experienced any delays or restrictions that might hinder delivery times to your location in Europe?

    International shipping can be challenging to navigate sometimes.

    I commend you on your enthusiasm for Spyderco knives, they offer a great variety of high quality knives!

    I'm sure they'll sorely miss your business with that attitude.
