Customers, You will not see negative feedback as I try really hard to
take care of any customer's concerns. Yes a fraction of 1%
of sales are returned as unsuitable. I do not keep putting
up testimonials all the time but whenever any new product comes out I
try to post a variety of unsolicited comments from customers.
Suggestions for improvements are welcome BUT keep in mind that it is
very expensive for me to come out with a new design. Ceramic mold
for blade alone costs $1,500 and then there are minimum runs of between
1,000 and 1,500 of ceramics required.
I love my new Carbon Fiber Ceramic Folding Knife. It retains an
razor sharp edge far better than even s30V steel. It is much more
durable than I had imagined, it looks awesome and with the carbon fiber
scales, it is the lightest pocket folder I have ever used for
EDC. Furthermore, it has been a pleasure doing business with a
true gentleman such as yourself. I look forward to buying more of
your products in the future and I wish you much continued success.

I received my Carbon Fibre folder yesterday and the quality is second
to none. I showed the knife to a few friends who were impressed as
well. Look forward to some more orders from them. Thanks for the fast
shipping and super easy transaction.
I was interested in the Riggers knife as well, but wanted to know if it
has a pocket clip available?
After receiving the new Carbon Fiber model I compared it to my Boker
ceramic. Your new Carbon Fiber model is superior in its feel,
overall design. The quality of the blade is excellent with very
in hand stability. This is now the knife I keep on my side due to
Feedback: Just received my second installment of knives from
Phil. This time around I picked up the new Carbon fiber model and
a few others. Excellent knives, have replaced my Boker with the
carbon fiber version and use it every day. Keep up the good work
and look forward to more innovations.

Received both knives today. Thanks. A very fine
product. I am giving one to a friend for Christmas and will be
making a special presentation wood box. Nice website with a lot of good
advice. I will probably be buying more knives from you.

Phil, I am much more impressed with this knife than even I thought I
would be. The fit and finish is stunning. The carbon fiber
handle is beautiful and the blade is a deep glossy black and very
sharp. I can\'t get over the weight, or lack thereof ! You
weren\'t kidding when you said 2 ounces. The blade has just the
right amount of tension and absolutely no wobble where it mounts to the
frame. Look forward to more orders from me !
I received the knife on Saturday, it’s
looks great and it is very sharp.
I am glad that I waited for the new improved one. (Small Pocket Knife)
I received the knife today and I have to say I am impressed. I am a
knife collector and have quite a few knives, including the same knife
by Boker. Yours is just as good, and for the price you can\'t beat
it. I will be ordering more of your knives.
My ceramic knife arrived Friday and it's even nicer than I
expected. I'm very happy with it.
As soon as I can show my two brothers I'll bet they will both want one
and will be sending an order.
Got the riggers today that was mailed on the 19th.
Thanks so much - a very nice tool and I'll be recommending it to my
crew and friends.
the knives arrived today and they're perfect. Tomorrow morning, I
just might try shaving with one.
Also I have a pretty good story about one of your knives. We had
an issue with a broken halyard, and had a sail stuck on lock.

the lock strop like it was butter.... He was amazed at the

Again thank you for the great product,
I just placed another order, this time for (2) of the black hunter's
knives. These are for 2 Volvo Ocean Race bowmen, one is South
African and the other a New Zealander. The thing they like
about this model is the belt clip, just wondering if it can be
incorporated later with the riggers blade. I'll be flying out on
the 22nd to meet them in St. Tropez, hopefully I can have them by then.
Feedback: At first I thought your prices were high, but i had never had
one of your knives in my hand. I was forced to get one to see what was
so great and wonderful. Well after receiving mine. I now have
that answer why. It is Razor Sharp, Very Light ,sits well
in your hand and just a very nice .
Cavalry,82nd Airborne Div
I purchased one of your FU-I knifes last year. I was particularly
interested in using a ceramic knife for skinning large game (mostly
deer, some moose, elk) The challenge I have with a steel knifes is that
they dull part way through the job, and stopping to sharpen the knife
is often problematic because I'm usually losing light on a short autumn
afternoon, and it's getting colder (and my damp, tired hands start to
cramp). My answer has been to use multiple knifes (usually 3 - a Buck
skinner, Wilkinson "RCMP" knife, and a Knifes of Alaska hunter's ulu),
and then sharpen them all after I'm done. Other people use utility
knifes with snap off blades, but I find having a curved edge is
advantageous in places. After preparing the ceramic knife by (very
patiently) hand stropping a convex edge with 15 micron silicon carbide
paper, it was ready for use. After a few cuts through hide, it wasn't
"ridiculously" sharp (same happens with steel), but after that, the
edge didn't noticeably deteriorate (a steel knife gets harder to use
about 1/3 of the way through the job, and three knifes are dull enough
to be harder to use by the end of the job). On a deer hunt last fall
for interest's sake, I didn't sharpen it between animals, and after two
it felt like it could keep going - incredible. That's me on the left in
the picture, with my favourite steel folding knife resting comfortably
in my pocket.
The folks I hunt with (who's knifes I sharpen) were also impressed - so
when they see the new hunter's knife, you'll probably get some more
traffic on your web site (and then I'll spend less time in the evenings
sharpening their knifes (and my own)). I plan to use the EOD knife for
slicing vegetables, cubing meat, etc. - not it's primary intention, I
know - but I like the look of the shape, and I'm guessing it's light
and nicely balanced.
comments: Sir I got Hunter\'s Black Bladed Ceramic Knife
about a month ago. The best knife I have ever owned. I us it out in the
water on my jetski.

comments: Sir, I am in the USMC and I am an EOD Technician currently
deployed overseas to Afghanistan. My unit purchased three knives
from you and I am really happy with the sharpnes and versatility of
your product, we purchase the riggers knife. My knife has three
chips in the blade, I was wondering if you sell replaceblades for that
model knife? I would love the knife just a little bit more if it
had a pocke clip on it. Once again, thanks for making a great
product, I use mine daily.
Hunter's knife arrived yesterday and I just wanted to let you know how
pleased I am with it. I'm particularly impressed with all the thought
went into the design. It's not only light and really cool
incredibly functional. The handle feels great in the hand, the
right where it should be, and the liner lock (nifty design which you
to mention in your advertising) creates a really great stance for the
finger. The blade, of course, is the reason for buying the knife
arrowhead logo). I lubricated it up a bit and I get a really

The 3000grit Norton Norax belts came in this morning and I decided to
give ceramic sharpening a try. Prior to sharpening, I took my
Riggers ceramic knife out and sliced up a medium sized cardboard box
into many pieces and whittled on some oak limbs that were in my
yard. Since the blade was still cutting pretty well on cardboard
I decided to cut up a Dr. Pepper aluminum soda can, so I did making
about 8-9 cuts down the side of the can. Now I know this probably
voided the warranty but I really felt like I wanted to dull the blade
and to try it out. I must say in truth, this knife is much
tougher than I thought that it might be. After all the above, I
had one small nick near the base of the edge and it still cut
cardboard, though with increased effort. No other damage to the
I was able to resharpen the blade at near the same angle that it was
when I got it from you in 8-10 passes across the 3000 grit belt on my
medium speed belt grinder on both sides. In doing this I was able
to both remove all but the tiniest bit of the nick and put a decent
edge on the blade. The 3000 grit belt polished the edge as
well. After this initial sharpening, I buffed the edge with
jewelers rouge on a hard felt wheel to see if I could discern any
difference in cutting ability. None was noticed. It will
now slice up plain old copy paper with ease.
Thought I’d give you a report on my sharpening efforts and the
knife. I was able to sharpen to a very decent and working edge
and this particular Riggers knife is indeed tough. I don’t
recommend anyone go to the lengths that I did however.
Thanks for a great knife.
Your Ceramic Pocket
Knife just arrived. From the pictures on your website, I expected
sculptural art. But I am stunned by the elegant precision of this
folding knife, which seems to mold itself to my hand. Strong, sharp and
wonderfully lightweight, it appears ideally suited for 90% of daily
cutting tasks. And while admiring its look and feel, I can also share
kinship with distant ancestors, whose flint-edged tools are recalled by
your design on the blade. Thanks to you, I can now experience the
sharpest blades ever devised.
It is an extra
pleasure to be dealing with a fellow Canadian.
My Best Regards,
Boy that's is
great. It's a wonderful knife and cuts like a breeze.
What a difference between this and using a steel blade.
First I have
heard of this problem. The screw SHOULD HAVE had some lock
tight applied -
but difficult when each is individually assembled & tightness
varies with each knife.
I do not have
"spare parts" as I have all the knives assembled undercontract.
will ship out a complete replacement knife.
tightness from time to time is the only suggestion I could make.
I just received your package and the knives ROCK!! Thanks very
much. I will use and abuse them during this deployment and let
you know how they fare. If you need anything please let me know.
Hey, I decided to get a few more and a
sharpening card. I had a couple of friends who wanted one. Thanks!
The knives have
been great. Your site says that you sourced this knife. Are there any
more like the E.O.D. or is that all they offer?
sourcing, I meant that I had these manufactured to my
design. Blades made by one company & assembly by a
second, engraving by a third etc etc.
I have to have a MINIMUM order of 1,500 blades at a time this limits my
ability to keep paying for inventory. This really is a part time
business that will help me with retirement whenever that occurs!
Good thing wife is talented surgeon - only need 4 stiches!!
An absolutely stunning piece!
The blade is sharp beyong my imagination.
Feel free to
write me in 6 months so you can ask me how it's holding up.

Hello, My name is stephen wilson i
spoke to you last week when i
ordered my riggers nice from you. Well i got it today and all i can
say is wow, this thing is great and super sharp.
Well since i am very happy with it, i decided to place another order.
so you have another order to ship out soon to me.
To be honest i actually thought the rigger had a clip on it but i
guess i was wrong and that was only with the utility knife, so i made
sure i ordered a little of everything. I think you have another
time customer, thanks for all your help and a great product.

I just received
your package ... I'm amazed at the efficiency of our combined postal
services ... I thought that a week would be optimistic!
I'm also quite
impressed with your knives. The thickness on this blade is EXACTLY what
I was looking for. I'm surprised that you can keep them in stock at
under $50 a piece. They must be flying under the radar of the market.
I'm quite pleased that I got two of them, though, as I would be
seriously thinking twice about one for a source of project parts if it
were the only one I had!
Phil, the knife has arrived today. Overall it's very beautifull,
especially the handle is made very nice with the accent on the design.
However I have one note concerning the blade: I would prefer convex
bevel along the edge rather than straight one (to get thinner
drop-point). What do you think about that?

Thankyou Sir...knives received and already in use. Thanks again.
I Forgot to mention
that the opening (removal of blade guard) is
CHILDPROOF - ie;
Easy to make this
more easily opened by cutting off one or both of the
projections on the side of the handle where it "clips
into" the blade
Phil, got the tools today. These knives are beautiful, my
teammates are goning to be thrilled.
Received my knife today. I am not
Quality: Outstanding. Very well constructed, nice
design. Price: For the quality of the piece, very
nice! Durability: I\'ll let you know.
Recommendations: could use a pocket clip, even on this small one.
Got the knife, very nice work thank you very much.
I'd just like to say that the size is just what I like and the only
thing that would make it better for me woould be to reduce the weight
I recieved your
knife in the mail today. I am a pocketknife kinda guy and have a
number of favorites that I rotate. I have to tell you, as far as
first impressions go, I am in love with this ceramic knife. The
size is perfect, not too big....not too small. The weight is
excellent for pocket carry and the handle fits in my hand like a glove!
But the most
exciting thing for me is this blade! I think I could shave with
this thing! I have never owned a ceramic blade before, so I am
going to put it through its paces to get a feel for how practical it
this is an excellent value.
My knife arrived
last night, way in time for my vacation next week. What a great little
gentleman's pocket knife! I showed it to a co-worker this morning, and
he'll be ordering one soon.
Thank you so much,
bought two of every style!
Really great knives!! Great workmanship. :-)
I look forward to
receiving your knife. I'm a combat medic and I saw another medic using
one of your knives to help extract a casualty. The ease with which he
cut the nylon straps helped us get the man out and treat him much
faster. He told me he'd been using the knife he bought from you for
over a year and hasn't had to sharpen even once yet. I'm sure this
knife will help me perform my duties better. Thank you.
