Around here we like to think of "bladeplay" as playing with knives. Of course, we can't emphasize enough the need for caution while doing so (even though getting cuts builds character). The term "Blade play" also refers to the amount of movement a blade has once a knife is open. Ideally a blade should not move at all, even when pressure is applied in varying directions. Some knives, such as out-the-fronts, invariably have some play.Who runs this website?Return to Top
Originally the website was run by two guys named Carlisle and Warren (they just loved knives!) Carlisle was a knife enthusiast who had tons of knife connections and Warren was a programming powerhouse- after they teamed up Bladeplay was born. Bladeplay is not affiliated with Blade Play Knives of Washington State. As of 2007 Bladeplay is run by a renegade robot known only as "Shiny" and his cohort of electric friends.What kind of knives do you sell?Return to Top
Bladeplay.com carries a large number of budget and quality manual folding knives, switchblade/automatic knives (check your local laws to see if such knives are permitted in your area of residence), spring assisted knives, a selection butterfly knives as well as an assortment of Italian knives (stilettos, lever locks, OTF Cocords, swinguards, Damascus steel collectibles etc). Some of the name brand knives we stock include Boker, Buck, Smith & Wesson, SKM, AB, AKC, and Frank B.Do you have a catalog you can mail me?Return to Top
We don't offer a physical catalog. Our stock rotates too much. People would be ordering things that we don't carry anymore. It would be very sad, and this is a "no tears" sort of company.Do you sell anything else besides knives?Return to Top Why should I buy a knife from you as opposed to some other seller?Return to Top
This is a serious question, especially with so many choices out there. I think one reason is that we really care about our customers and the quality of our service. We always try to answer your email questions within 48 hours or less (emails are generally not answered on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays) and we'll never leave you hanging if you have a problem (we're not perfect, but we'll get it right in the end). Another reason is that we pride ourselves on the quality of our merchandise. Many of the less expensive knives we sell have a high rate of failure when initially shipped to us. We don't just pull one from the shipment box and send it to you- each knife is inspected to make sure it works correctly. Finally, the items we sell are in stock and ready to ship- we do not rely on drop shippers. We appreciate all our customers- nothing is possible without you.What’s the quality like on the knives you sell?Return to Top
Oh yeah, we're for real. No tricks, no hidden costs, what you see is what you get. How do we do free shipping... hmmm. Well, we just mail the knives and don't charge you. However, if you're in a hurry you can purchase expedited shipping from us.Can I advertise on your site?Return to Top
No, not at this time.Can I link to your site?Return to Top
You bet- please. If your website meets our standards (they change with our mood) and is not in direct competition with our website we'll be happy to link back to you.What’s your favorite knife?Return to Top I like your website. What software are you using?Return to Top
The Bladeplay.com software is custom designed and programmed from the ground up. Want it? Too bad! Ha ha... it's all ours. ;)
If all of your items were in-stock when you ordered, and you ordered more than 2 business days ago, your order has probably been shipped. If some of the items were actually not in stock, it is possible that your order has been delayed (If there is a delay with your order you will generally receive an email). You can check your order status HERE.How do I change quantities or cancel an item in my order?Return to Top
If you need to change any quantities or cancel your order, please contact our customer service department. Please note that once an order has begun processing or has shipped, the order is no longer editable.How do I track my order?Return to Top
Once an order is shipped an email is automatically sent to the email address provided on your order. Orders can be tracked by clicking the appropriate link in the shipment email. If we don't have an email address on file or if you did not receive an email shipment notification please CHECK YOUR ORDER HISTORY for shipment information. Increasingly our confimation emails are rejected by ISP filters. Please make sure emails from us are not blocked.
All knives are different so this isn't a question we can answer easily. We have re-uploaded our INSTRUCTIONS page and you can view it HERE. If your knife isn't on the website we'll be happy to add it for you.My order never arrived.Return to Top
If your order hasn't arrived there are several possible reasons:
Sometimes when an order is placed the credit card is declined. If this is the case then the order will not be shipped. Customer service will send you an email, but occasionally these emails end up in junk folders. Check your account to see if your order shows up in the order history. If it doesn't, then odds are the order was probably declined.
If you chose to pay with a check or money order, then the order will not be filled until we receive it by mail. This can add processing time to the order. For further assistance, please Contact Customer Service with your order number.An item is missing from my shipment.Return to Top

If the mistake is ours, we can generally provide you with a pre-paid return shipping label, please contact us for details. We strongly recommend you insure any package being returned to us- if your return is lost or damaged there is nothing we can do.Can I exchange an item if I don't like it?Return to Top
