Good Source For Knife Handle Shields

Post by Jeffinn » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:05 pm

This place has a good selection of knife handle shields at a good price (prices are for 10 shields) particularly for the Schrade knives. I’ve dealt with them a few times and they’re reliable and the quality of the shields is good. They also have some Schrade blades and a lot of different pins (although the pins aren’t always identified very well).
Just passing it along in case someone needs a shield or two!

Thanks, Jeff. That seems like a good price to me! Ordered a few, to have on hand.

I visited the site and registered. I found some shields that I need, put them in my shopping cart and that is as far as I can get. I get directed to the PayPal site to pay for the item and then I get redirected back to Discount Cutlery. I've tried to pay 6 times and still go back and forth (IT IS NOT A MATTER OF INSUFFICIENT FUNDS). I guess I'll try contacting Discount Cutlery tomorrow to see what's what. ::shrug::

Hmmm, I used PayPal there just the other day and didn’t have any problems. Let us know what you find out.

I will post the results of my inquiry. Here's another "clue" that might help solve the mystery. When I enter my state and zip code to obtain the postage/shipping rates, it won't upload my choice to the invoice. The shields I want are .88 and with the postage, the total would be close to $6.00 When I go to PayPal, it shows my total as .88 and sends me back to Discount Cutlery. I'm 99.99% sure that I'm following the steps correctly, but you never know. To be continued................

I tried to buy some of the shields last night and encountered issues as well. The purchase seemed to go okay but then I received a PayPal email saying I had to return to the website to complete the purchase. Now each time I try to go back to the website I get the following error 523 message.
If you're a visitor of this website:
Please try again in a few minutes.

If you're the owner of this website:
Check your DNS Settings. A 523 error means that Cloudflare could not reach your host web server. The most common cause is that your DNS settings are incorrect. Please contact your hosting provider to confirm your origin IP and then make sure the correct IP is listed for your A record in your Cloudflare DNS Settings page.
No money was deducted from my PayPal balance. Not sure what the problem is or how to complete the purchase at this point.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Update

I finally got back into the site and was able to complete the transaction. I went around in circles for a while on their website but finally got it done. I'm not sure what the issue was but am inclined to think it is something on their end that is a cryptic problem. I did take me several tries again to get the sale completed and an email from both PayPal and their website confirming the sale.

Thanks for making me aware of this Jeff. Great prices on the shields!

Too bad this place doesn't have any Boker shields... they could make a mint off them.

Just as a FYI,
Depending on the year of the knife, Boker will supply missing shields for knives. I contacted the awhile ago and they sent me two shields for knives I was working on at no charge. I’d have to look through my old e-mails to see who I contacted but they were very responsive.

Mike, I think Boker shields must be the result of a witches curse or something. As many that have fallen off they ought to be laying around every where. Where do they go????? ::shrug:: ::shrug::

I need to dig up all my shield-less Bokers. If they will send me a "one-for-one" I will make the shields fit. Most of them are just the round ones... RIGHT????

Yes. If I recall correctly you can e-mail or call them. They ask for the model number of the knife and the size of the shield in mm.

I tried again a few minutes ago to pay for the same item I tried to pay for last night. Again and just like last night, I was unable to complete the transaction. I sent the company an email and am now waiting for a response. To be continued..............

Like I said in my previous post, I sent them an email describing the problem I was having with paying for an item (WITH PAYPAL). Here is their response, which I just now received:


"This email is a notification that your order is pending. Contact us when you have sent in your money order so that we can get this order processed. Please contact us if you did not mean to choose money order as the payment option. If you are paying with a money order, then please make it out to "TNT WHOLESALE, LLC" and send it to the address at the bottom of this email. Thank you!"

I sent them a reply stating that I do not want to pay with a money order. They also had my billing and shipping address wrong. So far, I'm not impressed. We'll see.............
