Ky Knives on eBay, as the name would suggest is a store selling knives. But they sell so much more. They carry Armed Forces merchandise, binoculars, belt buckles, camping equipment, hats, razors, stun guns, survival kits, and more. Click on the blue link above to check out their store page, and to see what sales and promotions they are currently offering. At the moment, they are offering a 10% off when you buy 3 or more items sale.
KY Knives has been selling on eBay since 1999. With over 300,000 positive feedbacks, as well as a 99.6% positive rating, KY Knives is definitely doing something right. It’s impossible to achieve those numbers unless you are focusing on customer service, but also on product quality. Buyers on eBay are extremely picky, and you will not last very long if you are selling junk, and if you are not taking care of your customers. 30,000 feedback is impressive enough, let alone 300,000. Seeing those feedback figures really makes you feel secure and positive about your purchase.
It’s not easy to become a Top-Rated store on eBay. You have to provide good quality items, accurate descriptions, excellent customer service, and fast shipping. And you have to do this day after day, month after month. So Ky Knives has had a very successful and positive selling history on eBay.
Ky Knives is an example of what I love about eBay stores. Having a eBay store allows your shop to have its own personality, offering a much more fun shopping experience than just looking at a plain white page with different products. It really does give you a window shopping experience that you don’t get from other major shopping sites online.
Their main product is different types of knives: Swiss army knives, hunting knives, pocket knives in numerous sizes, bowie knives, camping knives, skinning knives, etc. Looking at their variety of knives, they have a large selection in both fixed price, and auction form. If you are just looking around for cheap auctions to bid on, this is a fun place to start. Winning an auction for a 13.5″ hunters knife for example, for 99 cents + free shipping feels like you just won a prize.
I actually found this store one day looking for butcher knives. I wasn’t able to find a good quality meat cleaver in my local area, and so I decided to look on eBay. Doing my usual search, I ended up in their store page. They promise 24 hour free shipping, and their prices were very reasonable, so I bought the knife that I wanted. The knife arrived 2 days later, and was as described, first quality, and well packed.
The one thing I liked about my purchase was that it wasn’t the usual cheap Chinese stuff that you mostly find on eBay. I hate the knives with the flimsy blades, and the cheap non-riveted handles. My knife was pleasantly heavy for its size (good quality steel), razor sharp, with a sturdy and quality made handle.
What I like or don’t like
Their store navigation is fairly useful. Their left side eBay category listing is quite extensive. If you click on a main category, you then have multiple sub categories to choose from, like type, brand, etc. Once you get into a listing, the same menu carries over.
One thing that I really appreciate about this store is the quality of their listings. Each listing has a large picture, so you’re not left playing a guessing game. It can get really annoying when you’re looking at a listing and wondering if it’s the right color, size, model, etc. With a lot of sellers, you just get that one small stock photo, so detailed listings like these are good to have.
Their attention to detail in their listings, and their stellar feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this eBay store. As does their 14-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. That’s it!
