    I got my PE and SE yesterday. I was very surprised how small the Navigators are. They look awsome and feel great. I was not sure how I would like them, because I've never handled the stainless handles. But I really like them. I have no concern about maintaining a secure grip.

    The bad thing is the SE had a defect. I'm not sure if it's a spring or the lock, or something else. The blade was EXTREMELY difficult to open after the first half centimeter or so. It was so stiff the lock did not want to engage. Even when it did engage, it did not always pop up all the way. Also, the blade would not stay in the closed position. It would swing open that first half a centimeter or so, which exposed the tip.

    I called STP yesterday evening and asked if they could exchange it. The woman gave me no hassles at all. She said a new one would be shipped out, and for me to ship the defective one with the return label that was in the box. I got the email that said the new one was shipped this morning, before I even shipped back the defective one.

    I'm disappointed that I have to wait a couple more days. But overall I'm very impressed with the Navigator, and very impressed with STP--both with their prices and customer service. Although I should reserve final opinion until I get the new SE in hand...

    I got my blue Yojimbo and CF Harpy from STP. But the real score was the Bill's Khakis pants. I got nine pair. I'll never have to buy pants again. These are the best pants ever. Later,

    I do not think that they can go any lower than 50% off, plus you can google some additional saving. Two more guys from my work bought their first today.

    May be.
    I remember them having Persian for $62.50, Dodo for $49.95 and few others really wild deals
    Two of my friends got Scorpius PE today for $37.50 (50% off + they found 25% off coupon), which is not bad at all

    I predict that SOMEBODY (not me) will get a surprising deal on a black ATR this morning.

    I am way late to this thread but international = extra risk/problems with minimal gain for a deep discounter.

    Not to dis you bro but international makes you a riskier customer to a retail dealer. Extea costs with minimal gain.

    The current century has nothing to do with their business decision.
    Not really all that slick

    They did it again. Keep in the mind: 20% off coupon is easy to find and if you search hard it would comes with free shipping, but it expired today.

    You bumped a thread 3 years old showing discoed Yojimbos for $74?

    Please excuse me for a second. I need a small handful of Tylenol...

    That's sweet. Before I remembered I can not be buying any, I tried and it gave me $100.90 shipped. Is there coupon code?

    Just wondering now, won't be buying for some time.
