    So, whilst looking into maybe adding a Kershaw Knockout to my herd, I learned that still on the market are versions made with M390 steel and there were mentions on BF of a seller I'd not run across before. Place down in NC called "USA Made Blade"

    Have any of y'all any experiences with this seller? Their website seems well built out; pics on the site show a storefront so I guess it is a more or less independent retailer. But so far that's all I know.

    Any feedback would be most welcome.

    L'chaim!

    I have bought a few knives from USA Made Blade with great results. I actually have a ZT on its way.

    I only had one issue, where I noticed one of the screws holding the cap for the frame lock was not flush. I emailed Scott (the owner) about the size of the screw so I could fix it. He asked me to send it back (him paying the shipping) so he could make sure everything was good. In less than a week I had the knife back fixed and a free sharpening strop for the hassle.

    The ZT that is on its way is a custom anodized one that I asked him a question about. While emailing the only one in stock was sold. He anodized a new one that day so that I could purchase it.

    The knives he sells are authentic and he will stand by his work.

    I just received my ZT 0452wbw from Whitty at USA Made Blade last week. Great service, very fast free 2nd day shipping. He has a lot of videos on youtube if you look up usa made blade and enjoy. Id order from him again without hesitation.

    Never dealt with Whitty (sp?) but from what I've heard USA Made Blades is steller. If I lived in the US I would be a frequent buyer for sure.

    So my Knockout with blue handle, stone washed blade, and M390 arrived today from USA Made Blade. I don't usually describe things this way, but I will: awesome! Kudos to USA Made Blade!

    Interestingly, this knife does remind me a lot of an older Kershaw I have. I have a Cryo II (1556TI); got it back in 2015. Blade size and shape as well as handle size, thickness, and shape are such that the Cryo II could easily be considered an 'ancestor' of the Knockout. Of course it is nowhere as advanced. Blade on the Cryo II is just 8Cr13Mov and the AO is no longer as crisp as today's knockout. But the lineage is there, IMNSHO!

    L'chaim!

    I've done somemulticolor anodizing already but this one is just fantastic.

    I mean it's looking great but I also have a hard time just to guess how in the world they've done that.

    Awesome.

    I have no clue how the anodizing is done, but it does looks cool which is why I couldn’t resist.

    Here is a picture I took of the knife I received.

    I bought a Hinderer XM18 from them last month. Scott is very good to deal with.

    I have nothing but good things to say about them. I inquired about a ZT that was out of stock on a Friday. Scott emailed back the same day, stayed late that night to anodize it and shipped the next morning (Saturday). I didn't ask for any of this. That's just the level of service they offer. Knife was flawless when received.
