I have a few coming from somewhere else I paid $5 shipping but they seem to be coming PostNL. Not sure how that will work out but they were on sale at good prices so even at $5 they were bargains.


Will be interesting to see how slow they might take to arrive .



That happened to me, one shipped epacket on the 23rd and got to Me on the 28th:

and the postNL is still sitting at pre advised as of the 6th it finally got to pre advised. I would have rather waited another month to ship as epacket (what I paid for) than postNL, my last postNL package took 2 months to finally get to Canada then sat in customs for almost 2 months.... and that was mid summer not holiday time.
I’m so fucking pissed, if it was some $20 package I wouldn’t care but it’s a $250 knife I wanted to get for Xmas. If it was shipped epacket the same day as my other knife that shipped epacket I would have had it two weeks ago now. Five days my last epacket was, now I’m looking at 5 months for this fucking postNL.

Good to know . ^ ^ ^ ^ ^


So I just went to track mine but it appears to have slowed down - Xmas coming I suppose.

06-12-2019 08:40 The item is ready for shipment CANADA
06-12-2019 08:09 The item is pre-advised to PostnL
04-12-2019 04:15 The Item is at the shippers warehouse




The other one was the Espion Solo but its still waiting to be shipped. I suspect it will take longer than yours but good to know for after Xmas.
I did just get an out for delivery notice for my One Shots that have been sitting in Mississauga since the 4th.


Sounds as if you just got it in the nick of time before the madness begins . 😛


* Also helps tremendously that you are in BC but a bit slower to Toronto :(

Slightly off topic, but any problems with knives and Customs?

Sorry, I missed that part of your post earlier as i was just looking at the shipping dates. I can understand your anger.

Just looked and mine hasn't moved yet and I have a second package from there waiting to ship.
I will think about this for the next few minutes and might just cancel that order then.
The other one? 4 months? Why I only use PayPal.

Bummer for you, wanting it for Xmas. Sorry to hear that! 😢

No, I cant wait 4 months even if it isn't a $250 order as what i want today i might not want in 2 months, let alone 4.
HOPE it works out for you better than you are presently expecting!!



Edit: They don't seem to have a Cancel button. Never Never go anywhere but FT again 🤣
Price was just too good, knew there had to be a catch somewhere!

Ya I guess my shippers were having problems shipping knives threw epacket up until today, they can do it again, I know knIves are contraband with epacket but the sellers I buy from have always sent Me knives via epacket no problem up until about 3 weeks ago then issues occurred but it’s fixed now.

It the postNL I’m waiting for to even get to Netherlands to start its trip to Canada will most likely sit in customs for weeks according to Canada post. Fuckin seller should just ship Me another one epacket like I paid for and let Me return the snail mail one, would have preferred he waited until now to ship epacket like I paid for than to ship it post NL 3 weeks ago. Would still get to Me months sooner.
