Of course, the best descriptions in the world need a good photograph to back them up, and we take pride in offering the best shots in the industry. Our professional photographer knows exactly what is needed to show off the best angles of any knife. As long as we can open the packaging non-destructively, we even take our own detailed photos of every new knife that comes in so we don’t have to rely on what the manufacturer gives us. This ensures we can show off the most detail possible, giving you the best representation of what you will actually be receiving when you order.
