Horrible Shady Company. Beware !!
I purchased a Knife from Direct Knife Sales online.
I called them to get tracking information and they said that they mailed it to me, which they did not. It was only when I emailed them that I wanted to cancel the order, that they provided tracking. When I received my order, the box was partially open and there was no paper work or warranty information.
The Knife showed wear on the blade and a scratch. I contacted the Direct Knife Sales and explained the problem and that I wanted to return the Knife for a full refund. They emailed me back and said that they don't sell used Knives, and that the Knife I purchase was a "Conversion Knife", what ever that means. This wasn't stated on their website at the time of purchase. The also sent me a link which stated their refund policy. "There is a 25% restocking fee for all non defective returns and we do not return the shipping cost ".
It's cheaper for me just o keep the Knife. I Do Not Recommend this company.
I ordered a knife from Lightning OTF dba Direct Knife Sales April 11th 2016. I contacted them thru their...
I made the mistake of buying from this company, owned and run by Richard Keeton (I don't care if I spelled his name right) and I have ti say it's the worst experience with buying things online that I've ever had. I ordered AND PAYED FOR two knives on Thursday the 10th, didn't hear anything for TWO WHOLE WEEKS, and then got an email from him saying that one of the products I ordered was now out of stock. IT WASN'T OUT OF STOCK WHEN I ORDERED IT DUMBA**. So he sent me a different knife, which didn't even ship until two days later, and then got them and (they're butterfly knives) within the first minute of flipping one of them TWO of the screws fell out, and I almost got badly cut. DO NOT order from this website. I waited 3 WEEKS to get the WRONG thing to have it BREAK. Sorry not sorry for being so mad but I'll never do business with him again.
Same complaint - "Merchandise never received & No reply from vendor". On 09/03/11 Mr. Richard Keeton of Direct Knife Sales (directknifesales.com) received a credit card payment for items ordered on his site. All attempts to contact Mr. Keeton/directknifesales.com have been unsuccessful. I would be extremely hesitant to conduct any type of business transaction with either him or the Direct Knife Sales company.

I purchased a butterfly knife from Direct Knife Sales, which is apparently owned and operated by Richard Keeton, to give to my son as a birthday present. After my son received it, he told me it is defective. Mr. Keeton refused to allow me to return or exchange it, citing the company's five-day return policy, which is buried in their shipping terms page.
That page on their web site also says, 'we check our knives before they go out the door for imperfections. We do guarantee our knives. if you have any problems with them just let us know and we will fix the problem.'
They must not have checked this knife, or at least not well enough to discover the problem, and they certainly did NOT fix the problem. Here are the email exchanges over this:
Hi, we bought this butterfly knife as a birthday gift for our son. He tells us that it is defective (the blade sticks in one of the handles, exposing the sharp side of the blade, and not moving freely out of that handle, making it dangerous for the type of tricks or exercises he likes to do.
Can we return it for another knife? He says he'd also prefer one with a shorter blade, like 3.5 or 4 inches.
our return policy is that you can return your knife as long as its within 5 days of you recieving it. thank you
Well, it has obviously been more than five days, since we bought it well in advance of our son's birthday.
Are you saying we're out of luck even though you shipped us a defective knive?
It's not a case of just changing our mind. You'd be able to see the problem with this one right away, and we'd be willing to trade for a different one.
if its past 5 days of you receiving it, then we cannot help you on that. you should have known within those 5 days if it was good or not. we have to keep our policy for everyone not just the few. thank you
You set the policy, and the fact that you set your policy with such an arbitrarily short return deadline (far shorter than any reasonable retail standard), even in cases of defective merchandise, obviously allows you to sell defective merchandise, keep the money, and then tell the innocent customer/victim, 'Oh, I'm so sorry, that's just our policy.'
Practices like that are what give online merchants a bad name, and it says a lot about your character.
Placed an order in January. After six weeks, I received the wrong products. When I went on-line to view my order, it had been deleted, a practice, they said, was done every three months. They gold me to return the merchandise and would re-ship and compensate me for the shipping. That day, they went up on the price of my original product, refused to pay for my return shipping, and charged me a restocking fee. Sent several emails and made calls, which no one answered. Finally received a refund, but they deducted the original shipping charges, plus charged me a restocking fee on the knives that I did not order. Since they deleted my original order information, I could not confirm it. It appears, by looking at their "out of stock" items, that the company is going out of business and are trying to unload their unwanted stock on customers.
