Let the Wild Rumpus start! The turkey is cleared, dishes are done, and it is time for TTAK’s 2017 Black Friday Knife Deal thread. I want to start by thanking all of you who sent in tips. This is going to be the most comprehensive deal list we have ever done.
Kicking things off I want to put in a plug for Associate Editor David Andersen’s company Nordsmith Knives which is running a 10% off deal on Pilgrims and Canteen Knives. Use codes THANKS17 and FREESHIP to claim your discount.
JASON SMITH OF KNIFEARMORY: commented on our Pre-Black Friday post, mentioning he will be having free shipping and numerous discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I don’t see anything listed on his website, but check back, the site was updated today, so I assume it will be when the sale is live.
KNIFECENTER BLACK FRIDAY PAGE: Deals on all sorts of brands, up to 70% off. One that caught my eye was a Cold Steel Holdout folder for $79.95 (msrp: $249.99)
GPKNIVES Holiday Sale: Lots of deals across the board. $37 Kershaw Leeks (msrp $80), ESEE 5s for $125 (msrp $270) or a Kizer Kane Titanium Framelock for $200 (msrp $295)
BLADEHQ is running some pretty awesome specials as always. Orders over $100 get a free t-shirt as well. Here is their Black Friday Page . Deals galore…
I will let Zach and Ben tell you about it:
KA-BAR ISN’T MESSING AROUND: 50% off most items sitewide, but it ends Friday at Midnight.
SMOKY MOUNTAIN KNIFE WORKS: is running lots of sales on individual knives, but the thrust of their Black Friday promotion is in their free gifts with purchase level:
SHEPHERD HILL CUTLERY: Big Case XX sale. Click here for all of the deals.
FROM RUSSIA WITH KNIVES: has a Black Friday page.
BOTTLE BREACHER: Not knives, but cool bottle openers are $10 or $20 off of orders of $40+ and $75+ respectively.
SOG KNIVES: 15% off sitewide and free shipping with code : HOLIDAY2017 November 23-27
EMERSON KNIVES: 10% off sitewide and free shipping with code: FRIDAY10 through end-of-day Monday
GERBER: 20% off sitewide with code STEALTH
KNIVESSHIPFREE: will be updating specials daily. Click the link for the first batch, but the best thing to do is get on their email list.
DPX GEAR is running a 12 Days of Savings sale. You need to be on their mailing list for the daily code.
KNIFE DEPOT: Click here for current sale page.
ITS TACTICAL: 20% off sitewide with code SNOWFLAKE
MACYS BLACK FRIDAY CUTLERY AND KITCHEN PAGE: There was a surprising lack of good knife deals at other department store sites, but Macy’s bucks the trend. One eye-catcher: a 15 piece Henckels set for $79.99 (msrp 234.99)
SOME CUSTOM MAKERS ARE GETTING IN ON THE ACTION:
KEN HALL KNIVES: 10% off if you mention Black Friday when you order.
RAMSEYBLADEWORKS: 20-25% off select handcrafted blades
I will update tonight if I find anything major. David will have a mid-day update, and I will be back once more in the evening.
Then we will do it all again on Cyber Monday.
I am guiding tomorrow, so I won’t be around the TTAK email during the day. Your best bet is to share links in the comments. But please send them in. Let’s make this the most comprehensive list in the Blogosphere.
